Raising the roof over the debt ceiling
__ X __ No
No, in fact, Congress should LOWER the debt ceiling and immediately cut spending. The crisis is not an insufficient debt ceiling. The crisis is that government has been SPENDING beyond its means. Enough is enough. We need to get a handle on our expenditures. If it mean drastic cuts across the board, so be it.
I believe that most Americans want Washington's spending spree to stop. This is a winning political issue. More importantly, it's the right thing to do. It's the moral thing to do. This is why the GOP won the majority seats in the House of Representatives. The big question is will the Republicans stand on principle or will they bow to Wasting-a-ton, D.C. mentality, the way we've always done it, and raise the ceiling?
