What say all of you?
If we’re going to start paying down US debt, let’s bring back American manufacturing first.
I’m completely serious.
If we’re going to make it 17 trillion, we may as well make it 25 trillion or 100 trillion.
Calvin Coolidge speech on cost of government and cost to the citizens. Note the expenses of government he calls a “Stupendous sum” of 7.5 billion.
Great point. Our side should demanding that debt be reduced not increased.
Cap it at 17 trillion and fix the annual deficit at the 2008 level.
Debt is bad
Id rather nuke the bunch of em, but thats not an option.
All we can do... is to Negotiate such common sense... in forthright manner
We cant be responsible for the attitudes and behaviors of those who would remove a LIMIT altogether.
And if we divided the debt among the 300 million people, how MUCH would each citizen be obliged to pay. THEN factor in that 47% of them aren´t paying anything...so now how much is the other portion indebted for per capita... My calculador doesn´t work with that many zeros.
My answer is good idea.
But stop for an instant to marvel what that would sound like to The Framers:
“We cap it at 18 TRILLION..! No more..!”
They would never have believed it would get to even 1/10th of that.
It’s stil a great idea, but we have been full-blown meth addict for...40 years, I figger.
But yes, let’s do draw the line.
Better numbers: $1.783 million or just $1783.00
The debt ceiling is settled law, just like abortion and Obamacare is settled law.
Yes. Cap the debt where it is. FOREVER.
You will never cap the debt limit as long as the Federal Reserve exists.
They took money out of the hands of the citizens and put it in the hands of the Government and Wall Street. If Government does not have enough money now, or can not pay high interest rates, it simply prints it.
It should be capped at a much lower leval.If it were up to me I would limit the debt celiling below 16.5 trillion dollars.
if you don’t have the money you don’t spend it.This country can no longer afford to waste tax payer dollars.
SHOULD THE PERMANENT NATIONAL DEBT LIMIT BE CAPPED AT 17.83 TRILLION DOLLARS ?
Why? not.. it can be changed the way it is always is changed...
And nobody seems to care.. anyway..
American schools have made the people generally DRONES..
Drones working for the collective.. like bees... termites..
or even MOLE RATS... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5DcOEzW1wA
Please, just have one wafer-thin mint, Monsieur. What is one wafer-thin mint added to $17,000,000,000,000?
Cap the debt limit at 5% of GDP.
Shoot anyone trying to spend over that when we are not actively in a major International War.
