I am all for having the option to help pay down the debt. Congress should consider issuing bonds to defray he cost of some projects as well. Instead of sequestration, just take a stand and decide that some budget items need to be cut. For example, we spend more on defense than the next 10 nations combined, there must be a way to not only cut the growth of spending but cut real spending. We are not going to be attacked by 10 nations at once so why out spend more than one or two?
