That wasn't done. What was done was "starve the beast" which is the genius conservative strategy that says if your family is spending too much money every month then you can solve the problem by asking your boss for a pay cut.

Whereas the liberal approach is to double the family budget and live off of credit cards. Liberals keep telling everyone that this is a sustainable budget strategy just because the credit card company hasn't raise their interest rate. Meanwhile the family's credit rating keeps dropping.

Question for my liberal friends: is this sustainable or is the administration lying?

If you held Obama's debt, would you continue to lend him money?

How long before the government's variable rate credit cards start to reflect the unrealistic spending patterns?

Justify your answers.
