    •  exactly - the debt ceiling makes no sense (0+ / 0-)

      Congress tells the prez what to spend

      Congress tells the prez pretty much what revenues he can take in.

      the difference betw. those two Congressionally-derived numbers has to be covered by borrowing.

      If Congress is truly concerned about our national debt it should come forward with alternative spending & revenue directives.
