  •  ABOLISH the debt ceiling (1+ / 0-)

    It was meaningless when raising it was a foregone conclusion, though it did give the minority party a stage on which to highlight the growing national debt.
    Now that there's a precedent for a credible threat not to raise it, it's a land mine rather than a can to kick down the road.  
    When Congress sets the tax rates and the spending, they've defined what the debt is going to be.  Legislating a debt ceiling that conflicts with that is like legislating that 2+2=3.  

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
