If you hadn't thrown a temper tantrum last time, causing your credit rating to be downgraded, you wouldn't be having theses issues.

Yes, government finances are different. They can print more money!!

Eventually too much debt will cause the government to continue printing way too much money which will DEVALUE every dollar held by every person.

When no one can afford anything even IF THEY HAVE money, then MAYBE people will start paying attention to the MASSIVE GOVERNMENT DEBT.

Until then, let's just live in our little pretend world where it's OK for the government to be TRILLIONS of dollars in debt.

Somebody - me, you, your children, their children WILL eventually have to pay DOWN the debt.

no need to get over dramatic, we all know being in debt is not a good thing. But lets not pretend the gov finances should be run anything close to resembling a household. A corporation would be closer but still apples/oranges.

One of the main differences is that you are working toward a retirement and maybe a little nest egg to pass off to someone. The gov never works to a retirement age, does not pass down inheritance, ect.

And having debt in itself if not a bad thing; its too much debt that is toxic. Look at some of the biggest business in this county; they all have debt and has been growing each and every year. Cargill, Walmart, all of them. As they grow, they can manage more debt. They also are not working to an "endgame" aka retirement.

Hillary thinks only about Democrat politicians, when she says a shut down will not hurt Democrats. The minions never enter her mind, unless it's feeding time. A cross eyed, rancid hag with bloody fangs.

That's right.
Even the government has to learn NOT to spend MORE than they are able to borrow!!!
You and I HAVE to live within our debt limit; then so should the government!
The government needs to STOP SPENDING MONEY it doesn't have!
A small point of order - the government needs to stop spending money WE don't have.

I agree with you although Barry and Hillary consider that an insignificant detail.

That's like saying you're only a MILLION dollars in debt and you're only going to spend $300,000 OVER your take-home pay.(instead of spending $500,000 OVER in the previous year)!

So then, you are saying it really isn't about cutting spending, within an ongoing, overall budget deficit?

Sure it is about cutting spending.

But at the SLOW RATE of cutting back, it will take a GAZILLION years to pay off the existing/future debt accumulation.

That is, IF the government doesn't self-implode under the TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS it already racked up!!

The Federal government has been running yearly budget deficits around $ 1,500 Billion.

Devide that by 365, and it seems to federal governemnt is accumulating debt at a rate of about $ 4.1 Billion per day.

So, shut down the federal government for a week and perhaps we save $ 28 Billion.

$ 1,500,000 Million ( 1.5 Million X Million).

That how much the federal government will add to the national debt this year.

That's a $ Million check for every resident of the state of Idaho.
