Debt creation must stop

Reader Input
-A +A
Congress raised the federal debt ceiling (the amount of borrowing the federal government cannot exceed) on our national debt by almost $2 trillion just a little over a year ago. The deficit-spending has continued and our newest debt ceiling (over $14.2 trillion) will be reached sometime this May. Congress will again vote on another increase in the debt ceiling. Many members of Congress will support the increase openly and many will posture and offer lame excuses. However, they will probably raise the ceiling once again and it will once again be reached in just a matter of months. This irresponsible, unreasonable cycle must be stopped.
