    Look fellas, from now on, when we're in public, we've got to eat like we're on a budget. No more steaks with expensive wine...it just won't pass the smell test so soon after a debt ceiling increase. You'll thank me after we're re-elected!

    Under the austerity budget, we fired the White House chef, but the Congressional Dining Room is next, and that might change a few votes.

    President Obama and coleagues enact a lunch scene endemic of the new normal had the debt ceiling legislation not been passed.
