|Purge the urge to spend, spend, spend!|
I suspect that if you are like me this debt ceiling thing is confusing to say the least. I guess that if we don\'t pass a debt ceiling increase we will not be able to spend any money over $16.7 trillion which is, I understand, the current incredible debt limit. Since we as a nation have this uncontrollable urge to spend, spend, spend every so often we have to all agree to increase the limit so we can spend, spend, spend. I imagine this is what you do at your house; cards are maxed, home equity is shot and no access to more money so you just call the bank and tell them to increase your debt limit. We\'ll see how far that gets you. Even the bank\'s ATM would tell you to quit your spending and firmly, but politely, hang up.
