Right after the House passed the fiscal cliff compromise, President Obama said, "I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they've already racked up through the laws that they passed."

Yes, they should pay the bills that have already racked up.

But BORROWING MORE MONEY will only INCREASE the bill we will have to pay on the INTEREST on that borrowed money.

A really smart and brave President would be able to get the bills paid WITHOUT borrowing more money.

Borrowing money just kicks the can down the road.

Does our President and Congress have the cahoonies to make the tough decisions that would allow the government to PAY THE BILLS without borrowing money?

OR ... like any other entity that doesn't have enough money to pay their bills, they should RENEGOTIATE what they owe.

Often, vendors will accept a LOWER PAYMENT, rather than not being paid at all.

Obama needs to wise up and DEVELOP CREATIVE solutions to the government's financial problems.

The power to tax and appropriate money for spending is a power of Congress not the President. Spending is mandated law. Are you proposing to allow the President to levy taxes and spend instead of Congress? Would a smart and brave President overthrow Congress?
