America… Tighten Your Belt….

… So that we can loosen ours. This is the message from the United States government. The word came today from the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Pelosi had a press conference today where she laid out her plan to not only get the money ceiling raised, but to do so by attaching it to the Iraq/Afghanistan spending bill that has already been pushed through both chambers of Congress. I could sit here and pretend to be surprised, but we all know that wouldn’t be accurate. The out of control spending in Washington continues on a daily basis. And now that the credit card bills are coming due, Congress is in a position where they have to rush through some legislation that will raise the debt ceiling for the United States government. The bass-ackwards way that Congress is behaving with America’s purse strings is just another example of why we can be assured that they have zero clue as to how to help with the struggling economy.
The Time Has Come for the Federal Government to Cut Up Its Credit Cards
