Disaster in the making

Washington’s limits are seemingly inconsequential. If unemployment benefits are running out, just extend them. If the minimum wage seems insufficient, increase it. If any entitlement program is deemed inadequate, add to it. If the national debt limit is reached, raise it.

If anyone speaks of limits and economic sanity, denigrate them as wanting to keep poor people poor, starve little old ladies, deprive kids of an education, shut down government and having all sorts of despicable motives. These tactics may result in short-term political gains, but they slow the economy’s recovery and will result in economic disaster.
