With the budget talks this week, someone asked me what that’s all about. Here’s how I summed it up.
The side that wants to raise the debt limit is saying that they want to spend more of our money and avoid making tough choices about government spending.
That side also told us a couple years back that if they spent more of ours and our children’s money the economy would improve and we’d get a payback on that spending. By the way, their current actions of wanting to get more of our money is evidence their plan didn’t work.
The other side at least wants to start entertaining tough choices on spending and they’re not that interested in spending more of our money.
