If we didn't have a track record to look at, I might be less skeptical. But we do. It's like giving a freshman college kid a credit card..."they
will" max it out.
The abomination of bureaucracy is part of the problem, all those little Gov ants cost a lot of money and they stifle efficiency...pork projects to
Senator and Congressman home states...glad handing to lobbyist.
I am totally against the idea of giving authorization for them to have unlimited blank checks. Hell they already spend that way while pretending to
be frugal or cautious. "What do you mean I'm broke? I still have blank checks in my checkbook"
I understand that we have to pay our bills. I understand that might require "another" debt cap...but we cannot just keep doing this and we cannot
just say "no limit". The madness has to stop.
I saw an interview today with Boehner and he said the Pres is asking for 1.6 trillion in tax increases and has only put 400 billion in cuts on the
table...and added more spending to boot. This is NOT addressing the deficit.
Maybe these boneheads know something we don't and that is why they do not care. maybe all this "fiscal cliff" stuff is just to scare us back into our
cages...Maybe they already know it is impossible to pay back so might as well suck up all the credit you can get before you declare bankruptcy. Does
anyone know what we have been using as collateral for all this money we are borrowing?...I'm guessing Detroit...that's why they have abandoned
