Trailerhood in Washington?

Caught this headline from Global National:

White House races to reach debt deal

Read the story and you’ll see that the White House is scrambling to get a deal done so that they can borrow more money. The negotiations have me thinking of someone in a trailer park arguing with the cable company to keep the TV on after the second cut-off notice. The US government needs Two Trillion Dollars more to function. Two Trillion Dollars! That’s $2,000,000,000,000 or 12 zeros after the two.

I remember in the mid 1990’s the US had a balanced budget. I also remember in the mid 1990’s Canada had one too. While we’re only going in the hole 40-Billion now, that seems like chump change compared to 2-Trillion.

Someone needs to get their act together in Washington.
