Ky. Voices: Sophistry can't cover up GOP role in national debt

In Sen. Mitch McConnell's reply to University of Kentucky professor Ron Formisano's column, he resorts to sophistry which utterly fails to rebut the professor's charges. Rather than addressing Formisano's point of the senator's substantial involvement in the creation of the national debt — through his support of the Bush tax cuts, the unfunded Iraq war, the drug bonanza known as Medicare Part D and the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) — McConnell asserts, without evidence, that our debt burden is merely a consequence of "Washington spending too much."
