But we've been doing it for decades (with no apparent ill effects). Heck we've done about 100% of GDP of it so far.

And govt shut downs, sequesters, etc. It began to become a serious problem under Reagan, Clinton stabilized it with plans to pay off the US National Debt by the end of 2010, and GWB sank it like a rock. So much for the "no apparent ill effects" claim).
