PM Carpenter explains how threatening to hold the nation's credit-rating to ransom is just good political tub-thumping, but actually pushing "a vision that's a couple hundred years old, one steeped in American philosophical values of rugged individualism and collective rights and collective caring and virtually every Judeo-Christian ideal that can be Constitutionally woven into secular governance" … is "overtly partisan" and a "disgrace". Yep: that's about right.
