Here's how the government works. Congress dictates how much the government will spend and what it will spend it on. Then Treasury pays the bills. If Treasury doesn't have enough money from taxes, they raise money by things like selling TBills. We can do this very cheaply because the US government is considered to be one safest investments in the world.
However, the treasury isn't allowed to raise the money to pay for what congress has already approved, then the US will no longer be a safe place to invest. It will become expensive to finance our debt and our economy will crash.
I know you don't wish the US harm, but defaulting on the debt will destroy the US more than any terrorist attack ever could.
Please walk me through how exactly the federal government "gets" people to do anything?...it was designed from the start to get those WITHOUT insurance..... to purchase it....
I suppose that depends on how we each interpret what "liberty" means.But I suppose you are fighting for the right to be irresponsible.....after all, that is a guaranteed right...right?
Although I will give it to demo's that they found an internal plan that was never forwarded out of Heritage that some points dove tail with the current mess that demo's jammed through in the dead of night, but it is NOT honest to imply that republicans have ANYTHING to do with this law simply because you can point to a concept that was never even put out there as any kind of legislation to debate.
