A huge what if... my thoughts on the debt ceiling debate

What if...

Ok wait, everyone is mad about this debt ceiling thing right? The Republicans are jackasses for stalling and demanding their ideas be adopted... the Democrats are jerks for sticking to their guns and not compromising... the President is stupid for not making everyone love everyone... Everyone is mad. I heard a MSNBC radio commentator yesterday that I actually thought was gonna have a heart attack he was so upset with Washington.

Ok.. So... What if...

What if, ...this is the perfect example of how our Government is supposed to work.

What if the fact that the 2 houses of Congress and the White House not being controlled by the same party is forcing true compromise and allowing all the representatives we sent up there to be heard.

What if ... this is how it's supposed to work and the way things get streamlined when one party controls everything leads to decisions being made and voted on and passed so quickly that they aren't properly thought out.

What if our need as citizens for instant and precise gratification of exactly what we want is all that is making us mad at this process. (and the media putting it on top of everyone's mind)

This truly is a "what if" I'm not sure I agree with it... but I have been vocal about how stupid I thought things were for the last couple days and wanted to look at it from a different perspective.

If they don't get anything done and a default makes the sky fall... I will know this was a dumb post.

  1. I believe the powers that be in washington (and I use a small w because they have lost my respect for a W), need to balance our budget the same way we all do our households. If you can't afford it, stop doing it. Stop the silly worthless "studies" and get back to a practical and working budget. If you can't pay for it, don't go out and borrow for it because you want it now and not when the paycheck comes in. Or SAVE UP for it.
