I've seen this episode before

Well, the president has called the two candidates vying to replace him into the Oval Office to discuss a national emergency. Normally, this sort of thing would concern me. However, I already saw this episode of "The West Wing."
VINICK: Do we have an estimate?

BARTLET: First twelve months: 70 billion.

VINICK: I can say goodbye to my tax cut. Your education plan is certainly off the table. What’s a victory in this?
Bartlet missed the current crisis by a factor of 10, but otherwise, pretty good. Either "The West Wing"'s writers were prophets, or reality is just getting lazy.
