with a government shutdown. In fact, we probably need one.
Some things are worth fighting for. The Democrats’ alternative to a partial shutdown would be to continue to borrow $2 trillion a year from now into infinity. Did you know that the fastest growing component of our debt is the interest payments on the $33 trillion negative balance on the credit card?
But would it really hurt?
By the way, only “nonessential” programs would be temporarily closed if there were a budget impasse, which raises the question of why a government $2 trillion a year in debt is spending so much money on nonessential anything.
Yeah, it’s a good question…
But if it takes a short-term shutdown of some government agencies to force Congress and the White House to get serious about our fiscal ineptitude, then do it. It’s for the children.
