Want to lower the debt ratios of Soldiers Sailors, Airmen and Marines? Raise their pay. As the kids say, Duh. It's a five second decision any public school educated 4th grader could make.

Left leaning politicians can be forgiven for ignoring reality and focusing on symptoms rather than root causes. They live in a fantasy world where deep thinking doesn't pay and reality is simply too painful an experience to contemplate. Conservatives, however, cannot be forgiven, even in an election year, for bowing to pressure and replacing facts with fiction.

Senator Jim Talent (R-MO), no slouch on the conservative scale, is loudly proclaiming that, to protect military personnel from excessive debt, laws must be passed to limit interest charged to active duty military personnel. This is akin to Jimmy Carter trying to lower the misery index by fixing prices. One would think that Reagan adequately killed this notion in the 80's.

Want to decrease poverty and increase standards of living? Improve the economy by getting out of the way. Want to lower the debt ratios of Soldiers Sailors, Airmen and Marines? Raise their pay. As the kids say, Duh. It's a five second decision any public school educated 4th grader could make. Instead, Talent and other conservatives, running scared from liberal PACs and President Bush's approval ratings, are abandoning both their good sense and the base that elected them in favor of short sighted, nonsensical policies that have no chance of solving anything other than a short term image problem.

In today's Spitzer-universe, claiming business is "predatory" is sexy. Doing the right thing is boring. Talent's election website claims; "Senator Talent has worked hard on the Senate Armed Services Committee to provide our troops with the tools they need to win the War on Terror." Ask 100 soldiers which they would prefer; lower interest rates on short term loans or a bigger paycheck. But that type of poll doesn't get you on the news, where all good candidates want to be.
