Our fiscal mess requires drastic action. What kind of action? Well, unfortunately, we have to pre-emptively renounce our public debt. The Reps should make known that when they gain political control, all debt accumulated after this date will be renounced. By this action, I hope lenders will have second thoughts before loaning any more money to US gov't.
The politicians can't restrain their deficit spending. So, we have to make it difficult for them to borrow money.
