U.S. eats up most of debt limit in one day
    #14878817 - 08/05/11 11:02 PM (9 years, 9 months ago)

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/aug/3/us-eats-most-debt-limit-one-day/

So we use up most of our allowed spending in a single day, what happens next?
Will there be another vote to raise the debt limit or are there any other options that are being considered?

If you've been living on ramen while waiting for a paycheck, yeah, you might spend $100 on groceries in a day, because you have no food.

Doesn't mean you spend $36,500 on groceries each year.

I'd say that I can never look at you the same way again, except for the following:

a. As I've never met you, I've never looked at you in any way.
b. He's right.
c. He's right without the anger and hyperbole.

:cheer:

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
