President Obama said today that it would be the “height of irresponsibility” to allow the government to shut down because it has (will soon) breached the deficit spending limit that congress has previously agreed to.
Pardon moi monsieur President, but exactly how do you calculate that shutting down the government is somehow more irresponsible than passing yet another in an endless line of hasty extensions to the debt limit, allowing the government to continue spending money it does not have and cannot conceivably ever repay?
I don’t know what they taught you growing up, but to me, spending money you don’t have and CANNOT REPAY was pretty much right up on top of the pyramid of irresponsibility. Somewhere up there near letting your little brother get run over by a car.
This is your debt, Mr. Obama. Not mine. I refuse the debt.
