Our president tells us that it is our moral obligation to pay our bills and the interest we have accrued on our debt. No questions asked, no bargaining. (Forget about how moral it was to rack up the debt in the first place.)
In 2006, when the U.S. Senate was debating raising the debt limit under President George W. Bush, then-Sen. Barack Obama said this: “It is a sign that our government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign we now depend on financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. America is shifting the burden of bad choices onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a failure of leadership and deserves better.”
Sounds like something you might hear from those wacky tea partiers. Must be great to live in a world where you can hold two completely divergent opinions but yet, in your own mind, still always be right.
