President Obama said, “Let me remind you this debt ceiling pays for the money we’ve already spent.” We ask you to think about that reasoning. Let’s spend and then raise the debt limit afterwards.
Reality is this: They spent because they did not have a budget (because they did not pass one). Children do not like budgets as it restrains them from spending. That is exactly why they are kicking and screaming about a Balanced Budget Amendment.
