You fail to understand that increasing taxes and/or obtaining credit increases does little to address the problem of over spending. Nope, you just by-pass the truth and start on your old and tired "but Bush did" etc, etc. Well Dave, Bush has been out of office for some time now and the Dems had a super majority in both the House and the Senate for nearly 4 years. Yet, all you have is the "Bush did" card...<quoted text>
And really the idea that raising revenues is the same as accessing credit is just plain stupid.
Meanwhile, I've worked in the private sector for more than 3 decades and never did I approach my boss and say: "I've spent myself into debt and therefore you should give me a pay raise.
BTW, your comments suggest that you have little real world experience in regards to credit, debt, working in the private sector and/or living within your self determined means.
But then again, that's probably why you nearly always resort to name calling and/or labeling what you disagree with as being "stupid".
