I support the GOP in not raising the debt ceiling. I know they are doing it for the wrong reasons, but the result will be the same.
Once the power to borrow is maxed out, then the government will finally start making crucial changes to the budget that are necessary to save our economy from eventual and complete collapse. Raising the ceiling is just delaying the inevitable, and with the extra time bought the two parties are just going to keep up the partisan fighting. With the ceiling reached, it will create an urgency that would HOPEFULLY make discussion about financial matters more realistic.
If, however, the ceiling is reached and the partisan bitch fest continues, then our economy is doomed. And you know what, if it comes to that, we deserve it. Maybe then people will get off their complacent asses and be more active in the political process.
We have the representatives we asked for. If they can't make it work, then it's our own fault.
