    Hello All
    Just a regular normal retired guy from the U.S.A.. A lifelong democrat till this administration. Now I am switching to republican as at least they might help balance the budget. You cannot just keep spending and spending. Eventually you will run out of money.
    If any of you ran your household like this congress has you would,d soon lose everything.

    You can't Balance the Budget by Increasing Spending while Tax Revs are down in a Recession...

    You Know this, Jill...

    :)

    peace...

    Welcome Old Timer. Ignore the whining.... some people find it hard to keep their politics out of intro threads.

    First of all, thank you for your service and welcome to USMB. It gets a little lively around here sometimes but I'm sure you're up to the challenge.

    Unfortunately, there are some houses that are run on a spend, spend basis. The cure for it is called irresponsible bankruptcy ... for which all the rest of us eventually pay.

    Have a great day.

    Welcome.

    I was a lifelong Democrat for about a year, then a lifelong Republican for a year now I'm just lifelong.

    It's the SPENDING Jillian. Not the revenue.
