Does Virginia Foxx or any of the idiot conservatives who repeat this nonsense ad infinitum have any clue how people manage their budgets?
They use credit cards, which is debt.
They get mortgages, which is debt.
They get student loans, which is debt.
They get car loans, which is debt.
And let's not get started on businesses and their leveraged debts.
So if Republicans want Washington to act like American families do, then we're already there! The fact that they keep repeating that nonsense about "families balancing their budgets" is proof either that they are idiots, or that they're disingenuous.
