Shouldn't the government run under the same rules as a family? Children - " Gosh why can't we buy that computer and go on vacation"...because the budget doesn't allow for it..."Oh just put it on credit"....well we can't afford another bill and our income is dropping. Just a basic example that we might want to follow. This is not intended to be a Rep. or Dem. stance just common sense that we as a country need to wake up to.
