It's called a DEBT LIMIT! Out of money? Stop spending. Our Federal Government needs a budget. We are at, or almost at, a point where all Gov revues will only pay for the interest payments on the National Debt. At his point, taxes must increase and those who pay no taxes and the "takers" of society will either starve or find jobs to support themselves. The Socialist program like Social Security will not have enough reserves to continue serving the retirees and those on disability. Why? Because the TRUST FUND only contains IOUs.
