Some say that it is irresponsible NOT to raise the debt ceiling.
Well, true fiscal conservatives say it’s irresponsible to raise the debt ceiling without any reform of our profligate spending.
To allow the debt limit to go up an infinite amount, as much as Congress can possibly spend over nearly a two-year period, is about as fiscally irresponsible as has ever been seen in our history.
The federal government is spending nearly $2 million every minute.
The annual deficit this year will exceed $1.2 trillion.
What is irresponsible is recklessly indenturing our children and grandchildren.
What is irresponsible is binding our kids to this massive burden of debt.
What is irresponsible is a Congress that believes they are Santa Claus – everything to everyone, and it’s all free.
At least Democrats are honest. Democrats don’t care about deficits. Democrats are falling all over themselves to propose more than $50 trillion in new spending programs.
But Republicans are also guilty – at least, the Big Government Republicans who will vote for this monstrous addition of debt.
Many of the supporters of this debt deal ran around their states for years complaining that President Obama was spending too much and borrowing too much.
Now these same Republicans, the whole disingenuous lot of them, will wiggle their way to the front of the spending trough to vote for as much or more debt than during the Obama years.
Shame. Shame on the politicians who campaign as conservatives but govern as big spenders.
