I was hoping that the government shutdown would continue indefinitely. And I was hoping that more of government would shut down as well.

If you don't understand why I make the above statement then you have absolutely no business discussing anything to do with either the government budget or the debt ceiling until you understand why that is true.

Thanks for taking a light hearted joke, and turning it into whatever you hoped to do with what you said.

You get +1 Internet points.

But on a side note, both my dad and I feel the same way. He just isn't as passionate. Although he isn't actually section 8, he does love that he doesn't have to chase down the government for rent checks though, at least they do that right.

Plan to manage debt? No, just stack debt for days and kick the ball down the road.

When will the public stand up to the Democrats? Oh yeah, because the media sold the Republican as the bad guys.
