“Are people clear increasing the debt ceiling does not authorize the government to spend more? Rather, it provides funding to enable the government to pay for commitments made already by our government, initiated in the House and authorized into law.”
— Mike Solis
Survey sez that most folks slept through their Civics 101 class and could really care less. They just want a fix. If it doesn’t cost them too much then they don’t really care what the fix is either.
They want an answer in 25-50 words and prefer not to read or to question even those.
If a scapegoat can be found (the poor and the rich are always available) then that means even less thought is required as to what really needs to be done to fix our problems for the longer term.
