Congress is finally starting to talk about the most serious issue we’ve got, and that’s spending.We desperately need to trim trillions of dollars in order to get our house in order, and with any luck, this will be a battle that we can win. Speaker Boehner has said a few good things, but his capitulation to minor cuts does not bode well for future. Although he’s now coming out and saying that we wont raise the debt ceiling without significant cuts in the trillions of dollars, simply mentioning that the debt ceiling COULD be raised is a bad sign. Our official stance should be NO raising of the debt ceiling AND massive cuts. It has to be done – there is no way around it. We can only hope that the GOP stands strong with WITH the Tea Party and doesn’t buckle like it always does.
