    That's where your analogy breaks down again. A family that wisely, responsibly invests in its own education, housing, health insurance, utilities, etc. still balances its budget quarterly and yearly if not monthly or every pay period. To simplify, they live within their means.

    I think you're overthinking it. I have to pay my bills same as you, and I can't endlessly tap someone else's productivity to do so. Why should the government, especially when half the time their ideas are shit anyway? Being a Senator or Representative doesn't make someone smart (cf. most Republicans and most Democrats).
