The debt ceiling has been raised 7 times in the past 3 years. Look where we are now.
The debt ceiling could be raised tomorrow. But, there will be no tax increase. There will be cuts in wasteful entitlement spending.
They need to look at Minnesota. The state shut down for two weeks when the Democratic Governor could not get with the program. No tax increases and reduce wasteful spending. Took him 2 weeks for the message to sink in.
The voting populace has spoken. You can not spend what you do not have. Take steps to reduce wasteful spending; and stop taking more from the pockets of working taxpayers with increased taxes.
The Democrats have now stooped to fear tactics. Really not necessary if they listen to the voters.
