Frankly I don't understand our government and many people. This is like a young person with thier first credit card. They spend and spend and when they run out out credit they open a new card. When they max that out they open another and another. Then buried under a mountain of debt the person for some inexplicable reason changes their hours to part-time to go out and spend more money on thier credit card. At some point the piper will have to be paid. We cannot as a country continue to spend money, have a debt that is starting to crumble our economy and not only not expect consequences. Not only do we not expect consequences we expect someone to do something about our debt just don't tell us to stop spending or pay on the debt.
