Based on our constitution the house can do nothing by itself. In short, there is nothing you can dream up that doesn’t require Senate conferencing and presidential signature. Nothing can be accomplished but everybody wants something, even the conservative base
You can’t even accomplish not increasing the debt limit because that leaves us with only 2/3 of the money needed to meet current obligations of the country. In other words, it will give the enemy a national issue to use in 2014. Then conservatives will have zero input at all.
The place IMHO to attack this is the amount of interest on the debt we pay each year. Conservatives should hammer home that that 3-4 hundred billion each year would pay for major programs, so it is a waste
It can’t go on. In just a decade it could be 25% of budget and especially if inflation raises interest rates
“It cant go on. In just a decade it could be 25% of budget and especially if inflation raises interest rates.”
You’re right: it can’t go on. But it won’t be the politicians who force the issue. It will be when our currency is devalued to the point where a loaf of bread costs you $25. IF you can find some fool who will sell it to you for that.
Economic destruction will come before political reform does. Prepare accordingly.
