Ask everyone in Congress (or your readers) to respond to this simple survey question:
Which would you pick if you could choose ONE that is BEST for the country?
A. Argue – Keep arguing until someone comes up with the perfect solution, none of these are going to work – stall for time, play games, scare the old to death, whatever works works.
B. Borrow – Raise the debt limit, borrow like no tomorrow, better yet get rid of it altogether, use endless borrowing to raise endless funds (more money to spread around to meet all the country’s needs).
C. Cut Spending – $14.3 Trillion is too much already; that is the most important thing to address and to make sure our credit is not downgraded, we go broke, etc.
D. Raise taxes – We have to have bigger government, more money to spend, and more money to spread around to meet all the country’s needs (if we can soak enough people/corporations no need to raise the debt limit or default).
E. Punt – Kick the can down the road, do what will get me the most votes; do not even try to do what is obviously the right thing to do (how lame is that?).
