The debt ceiling has been raised ten times in the last decade. Republicans have already promised to raise it again. This is because EVERYONE knows what is necessary to NOT raise the debt ceiling and there is a complete lack of spine to do the right thing.

If you answered? "It will likely get raised again next year" you are more than likely right.
You know what I want to scream at my congresscritters?
You could cut DEFENSE completely and no one in the bean counter section would notice. YOU HAVE TO CUT ENTITLEMENT SPENDING, Social Security, Medicare, Medicade.
There is NO OTHER OPTION. The numbers don't add up. Grow a spine and do the right thing for once in your career."
The federal government doesn't have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem.
