Obama and Democrats are acting like there are two choices: increase the debt ceiling or default on our debt and basically declare national bankruptcy. These two choices are dishonest. There is a third choice. We can cut spending for non-essential programs, cowboy poetry festivals, turtle bridges and skate parks, superman capes for the unemployed, NPR, planned parenthood, the war in Libya, etc and cut spending enough to meet our current debt obligations.
The government is like a man in a 5,000 sq ft home with premium cable channels, eating filet mignon for breakfast lunch and dinner, driving five nice cars, with a lawn service, pool service, weekend hookers, and every gaming system known to man claiming that if we don't let him open another credit card to pay the minimum balance on his current card he will either have to declare bankruptcy or choose between taking his medication or eating.
Are those really the options?
