At what point will the government stop spending money it does not have. I am hearing that we will have to raise the debt ceiling yet again even though we are already 14 Trillion plus in the red. When the credit card is maxed out they just raise their limits. It is time for the politicians to make the tough decisions and stop giving lip service to the problem.

To be fair, this is not just Obamas fault, although the talking heads at fox would have us believe differently. My point is when I don't have enough money i have two choices. 1. I can go to work and make more money. 2. I can cut back on spending. Usually it is a combination of both. Its that simple.

As I said its not just Obamas fault. I remember Bush handing out $400 checks to every American that did nothing to stimulate the economy for more than a few weeks. that was borrowed money as well. The problem is not Republican or Democrat. It is on both sides.

cha ching lets run that credit card bill up .
The one thing i learned at my fathers death they seldom go after credit card dead when you are dead.
obama plans to kill the country declare America dead and dead people do not have to pay.
So lets keep that spending up shoot the Dem's think we should spend more . Lets make i a 4 trillion dollar debt a year. The Dem's don't want to stop spending . Once we kill America we will not have to pay
