Seeking Arrangement, the infamous dating website that matches "sugar daddies" and "sugar mommies" with attractive but cash-strapped young people, is inserting itself into the budget debate with a new pitch: to avoid the fiscal cliff, have a rich guy buy you things.

In a new video entitled "Rational Women Date Rich Men," the dating service promises struggling women a relief from higher tax rates (one potential outcome of present negotiations) in the form of free premium memberships.

"Until the fiscal cliff is avoided," the ad says in block lettering, " is offering free premium memberships to beautiful women in the US who want to be spoiled."

While not everyone wants to be spoiled by a rich guy who buys them stuff, let's just say the new commercial's sexist undertones might invite a new reading of the website's tagline: "Mutually Beneficial Relationships." That seems to be what John Boehner and President Obama really want, after all.
