"Pass a Budget if You Want a Debt Ceiling Increase"....?
Hey Repubs, how about no increase in Federal debt ceiling? Even if the Demonrats manage to produce a budget!
The ONLY way out of our fiscal mess is to CUT FEDERAL GOV'T SPENDING! Once the federal gov't makes the necessary spending cuts, then the individual states can decide if/how they want to make up for the reduced Fed spending.
