I’ll make this post pithy. It’s pretty obvious where I, as a fiscal conservative, proponent of free-market economic solutions, and limited federal government injection into every corner of our lives, stand on the current debate about raising the debt ceiling. Let me just quote a prominent national leader on the subject. Take a guess as to its author.
By the way, my representative in Congress, Jim Jordan, more than held his own this morning on Fox News Sunday against one of the more obnoxious Democrats out there. I am not at all certain that a Balanced Budget Amendment is the key to solving our fiscal problems (a budget with bloated spending and equally bloated taxes is balanced by definition but unacceptable!), but the common sense package Jim and his colleagues have proposed blow away anything else being proposed inside the Beltway.
Oh, yeah. The sage quoted above? Senator Barack Obama, March 20, 2006.
