To swap an increase in the federal debt limit for "some" spending cuts is insanity! But that's what Republicans say.
When it comes to debt, a government is like an individual, and an individual can't increase his ability to borrow more. He pays off the debt he owes.
Obama and both parties in Congress stand around so egotistically self- assured believing they know more than those of us who get robbed by government. But look at these freaks' track record. They haven't got a clue. All they know is that they're spending somebody else's money. It's fun for them, so they steadfastly refuse to stop their delightful thievery.
When you, readers, are flat broke and in the hole, you know you must stop spending. Do you instead go out and borrow more, by force -- the way government works? If so, you belong in the present day Washington, D.C., asylum for corrupt and pompous lunatics.
We will continue to get robbed by those pretending to "represent" us until we force them to stop political thievery, and figure out what parts of government must be permanently ended. Then they must end them! They could easily start with the unconstitutional stuff.
