    Treasury Secretary Geithner: Lift Debt Limit to Infinity


    (CNSNews.com) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Friday that Congress should stop placing legal limits on the amount of money the government can borrow and effectively lift the debt limit to infinity.

    On Bloomberg TV, “Political Capital” host Al Hunt asked Geithner if he believes “we ought to just eliminate the debt ceiling.”

    “Oh, absolutely,” Geithner said.

    “You do? Will you propose that?” Hunt asked.

    Considering Dems no longer have budgets, that's perfect.

    We need to separate from these dangerous, irresponsible people before they drag us all down

    That's really comforting...
    It's like he's saying we are so fucked right now it doesn't make a difference anymore.
    It's like you were in an accident and someone has an ambulance coming that's 10 minutes away
    and then someone gets one to get there in 5 minutes...

    The only problem is you will be dead in 2 minutes...

    How so?

    Any business that borrowed 40% of everything it spent and ran a trillion plus dollar deficit every year would be out of business before you could blink an eye.
