I’m spending more than I make:

Democrat – I have to have a raise (that my employer can’t afford)
Republican – Cut your spending.


When I owe a few hundred dollars on my credit card, I don’t tell my boss about it.  I quit buying nice things for a few weeks and pay it off.

I’ve never heard a good answer for why it’s okay for the government to do this but people have to pay back their debt by being frugal and eating rice and beans for a few months/weeks.

The country could take a big step toward being saved if there were a clause in the constitution that said the government can’t borrow money without being in a congressional declared war.
