Put It On My Tab

Andrew Sullivan discovered a mind-boggling statistic in last Friday's Opinion Journal. The column, which discussed the shrinking budget deficit, included this:
Republicans share a hefty part of the blame for creating the most fiscally unaffordable new spending program in the past quarter century: the Medicare prescription drug bill, with an unfunded liability that is larger than the GDP of every other country in the world.
(Emphasis mine.) That is just amazing, and verified by Andrew here.
