Our government is subject to the same forces as a business. It does not create money out of thin air. It creates money out of inflating our dollar. This has the result of giving you less buying power. Therefore we should run the federal government like a business and make the tough choices necessary. I support this concept of raising the debt limit only as offset to spending. There is no free lunch or free anything. We pay for it all. You cannot take money away from the super rich to pay for the debt. Communism is field everywhere else why would we want to try it here. We need to be responsible adults and tighten our fiscal belts. This will mean that some people will not get services. We need to make sure the needy are supported and the lazy go to work.
