    Enough to know it is for debts ALREADY incurred.

    “The purpose of an economy is not to endlessly concentrate wealth in the hands of fewer and fewer people…”

    Ms Benson is absolutely right. After 2 years of Clinton, voters were fed up and put in a Republican Congress. The Congress gave Clinton a budget bill that he vetoed, and the voters were so angry that they booted Clinton out of office in the ‘96 election.


    So the current Republican House must refuse to approve a budget and/or an increase in the debt limit, shut down the government, and I’m absolutely certain that Obama will be booted out of office in ’16, just like Clinton was in ’96!


    Great suggestion, Ms Benson.

    The line is busy, Egypt is on that line now. That is what true mob rule looks like. No wonder Obama supported them. He and you have no clue what it is like to live and work within a Representative republic that is ruled by the rule of law.

    Clinton was the last guy to work WITH the guys he had. The TEAM of Clinton’s give and take with Newt, is what got the budget semi balanced. but THEY did get a few things done.

    What part of we should be is space, we should be on earth, spending money and doing great things do you not understand? We are held back by our own cowardice, ignorance and fear. Austerity is not the answer, it is the problem. No wonder business is slow to invest. Our Republican Congress creeps around, afraid to act, mired in their own graft, greed and cowardice.

    So what? You want to “concentrate” wealth in the hands of the US Government?

    Oh yeah, their track record is sooooooo gooood.

    You should understand that not increasing the debt “limit” does not mean one does not pay the “debt” incurred already. It means you can not add additional charges. Even a government “shutdown” does not mean essential services – including debt payment – does not get done.

    But the money has to come from somewhere so things that should be done by the states – education, environment, border security, law enforcement, infrastructure and so on should be cut…..LOL

    “Tax and Spend” it was the problem 20 years ago and is the problem now.”

    First off, taxation is still less than it was during the Clinton administration, which had the longest-running peacetime expansion of the economy.

    More importantly, though, you get into far greater problems with “borrow-and-spend” than with “tax-and-spend”. Spending more than you make is bad under any circumstances, which Congress and most state legislatures have yet to figure out.

    But if you’re going to spend, it’s much better in the long run to spend money you have vs. money you borrow. And whose policy is “borrow-and-spend”? (Hint: check out the guy who said that deficits don’t matter.)
