Am I incorrect in the idea that passing the debt ceiling is just paying what we already owe (& was approved by Congress) the continued borrowing part is because we continue to spend more than we take in but the debt was already spent. I guess we could cut more school lunches or leave them alone & have the houses drink tap water rather than bottled. Must be an awful warm thirsty job to drink that much water for the little time there.
Not all that much but a million here & a million there would be a start. Heck when I was at work you didn't get any coffee, water or anything else unless you supplied your own & then it was only if you got a break.
