Not raising the debt limit does not mean we will default on our debt. There’s still sufficient income (close to $200B) coming in monthly and that more than covers the debt plus a myriad of programs. And the debt would be paid first before anything. Default is not an issue; never has been. It’s only been used as one by Obama and the Democrats as a scare tactic.

In fact, I’d like to see a bill that scales back the debt limit incrementally over the next 5 years, calls for a balanced budget, a permanent reduction of tax rates, and the cutting of all discretionary spending by a minimum of 20%. Leave entitlements such as social security, medicare alone FOR NOW. It would get through the House, and perhaps the Senate should the GOP twist enough arms. Obama would veto it, but that makes him own the consequences.

Lets add in vacation (sight seeing tours)limitations for congress and the President. And the Mooch must purchase their family clothing out of their own pockets, after all they are multi-millionaires and poor working slobs should not be picking up the outrageous tab for her parties, vacations, clothes and jewels. Did you know she is the first First Lady not to donate gems they are given by other nations to St. Judes? I want 0 to have to use his campaign money to pay for A-1’s time and use when he campaigns. We know he is combining it with an ‘official visit’ to get out of paying the tab for it.

And each federal worker, congress critter, and the Pres. are forced onto Medicare like the rest of us. No more platinum health care plans. And if they resign in disgrace after a couple of terms, they do not get a life time retirement plan along with the platinum health care plan.

It would put a big infusion of cash into Medicare. And throw all the illegal aliens off Medicare, welfare, WIC, Medicaid etc and deport them to create jobs in the USA for American Citizens.

Until they live under the SAME laws as we do, they are Master to our Serf.
