Massive, out of control spending is what threatens my job and part of what has perpetuated the miserable economic conditions.
The new liberal meme seems to
be more dependence, more spending equals a recovery.
Its the best you guys can do. which is to say you failed.
The platinum in the trillion dollar coin does not have to equal the value of the platinum contained in it. It could weigh one ounce with a face value of $1 trillion. To be sure there are problems using the platinum coin "solution" but failure to raise the debt ceiling has equal perhaps more problems associated with it. The $16 trillion in debt was created by Congress and to not raise it is not only stupid but refusing to take responsibility for their actions. If we want to have a discussion about the budget deficits and the merits of closing them by increasing taxes/cutting spending (austerity) then we can have it, but to hold our economy hostage for the debt they created is insane.
Here's the plan: We make the coin REALLY huge, and then roll it over to all the people we owe money to and crush them underneath its' weight!
"Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."
So your so concerned with the debt that you re-elected Obama ?
I wish you libs would be a bit more sincere when it comes to the millions of Americans that are struggling right now.
