I have been trying to figure out when it became sane to be the party in a relationship that couldn't stop spending. When did the one who wanted a budget which pays the bills without spending more than there is in the bank account become the lunatic? How is it that one spouse can demand of the other that spending more than they have will bring about fiscal stability? How can you demonize the party which is reluctant to give money to the hobo on the street when a disconnection notice has been served at their own address? It is madness that somehow the Obama administration wants to accuse the Republicans of being unwilling to compromise, yet Democrats time and time again veto and vote down every plan the Republicans put forward-without even looking at them.
Seriously, if this relationship were someone in your family or your neighbor, you'd shake your head and wonder why the fool didn't divorce the compulsive spender a long time ago. Clearly they don't want help with their spending addiction. Clearly they don't think they have a problem. At some point you have to cut your losses and worry about your own future. And of course, the future of your children..........
The Republicans standing up against Harry Reid and the Obama machine don't want the failure of America or a collapse of the economy. These Republicans want fiscal responsibility. These Republicans want to get an out-of-control system under control. No one wants children to starve or the aged to die alone in the street-the only ones who want that are the insane part of the Democratic Party that can't stop lying to push their agenda.
There has to come a time when the limit has been reached; when the spending is done. We have raised the debt ceiling 80 times since the '90's. We have had countless debt commissions that have done nothing. We don't have to default unless that is what this Administration wants to do. We don't have to let our children starve or criminals run loose; unless that is what this Administration wants to do.
The time has come to accept where we are and make the hard choices that must be made.
