Trillions in debt (and nothin’ to show for it)

Bruce Springsteen has a song about cable television in which he laments that there are “57 channels and nothin’ on.” The name of the song, logically enough, is “57 Channels (And Nothin’ On).” I thought of Springsteen’s song in connection with incumbent Colorado Democratic Senator Michael Bennet’s admission that trillions of dollars of federal debt has been incurred through spending since he was appointed to the Senate in January 2009, but “we have nothing to show for it.” At Battle ’10, Michael Sandoval has a terrific round-up on Bennet’s admission under the heading “Bennet bombshell: Trillions in debt, ‘nothing to show for it.’”
