When Republicans held both the Senate and the White House (2003, 2004, 2006), they provided virtually all the yea votes, while almost all Democrats voted no.
What I want to know is why the debt ceiling was raised when the economy was at its height? Why can’t the government function like I do? When I make a lot of money I put it in the bank and I invest it, I don’t go out and spend it like the Republicans voted to in 2003, 2004, and 2006. Now the economy is in horrible shape I’m not worried because I have money saved so if I have to spend a little more than I take in it will be just fine. I call it being a responsible adult.
