Shut The Federal Government Down

The next big "crisis" facing our country involves raising the National Debt Ceiling, which must be done in the next 60 days, since we have already hit the $16.4 Trillion Debt Ceiling.    Obama will not be able to continue borrowing 46 cents for every dollar the federal government spends unless the Debt Ceiling is raised again.   But this time, in contrast to the Fiscal Cliff deal, Republicans in both the US Senate and the House of Representatives control some cards and have some leverage.   Unless the President and Socialists in Congress agree to meaningful spending cuts and Entitlement Reform,  Republicans should shut the government down.  Of course, if they do so, don't be surprised of Dictator Obama does not use an Executive Order to eliminate the National Debt Ceiling altogether.  Socialists in Congress are encouraging Obama to do just that.  

A government shut down would mean that roughly 40% of spending would be put on hold, or immediately eliminated.   The federal government has enough revenues, coming in the door every month to pay the interest on our existing Debt, so there would be no default.   This is precisely what happened when Bill Clinton was President and Newt Gingrich and the Republicans controlled the House of Representatives.   Shutting the government down for a short period of time, which resulted in government employees not getting paid was exactly what was needed for Clinton and Gingrich to reach a deal that resulted in balanced budgets for three years in a row.  

Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress will never agree to meaningful spending cuts and Entitlement Reform without this Drama.   We don't call him Drama Obama for nothing.   The left wing lame stream media blames Republicans for everything anyway, so why not go over this cliff.   Obama has created a spending trajectory that will result in Trillion dollar plus deficits, every year, for years to come.   This President is intentionally determined to bankrupt our country in order to "transform" our nation into a Socialist, or Communist country.   We can't let that happen. 

Republicans must stand up and just say NO to more government spending.   If they don't and soon, the Republican Party will be no more.  The Fiscal Cliff deal will add $4 Trillion to our National Debt.  Enough is enough.   It is time for the adults in Washington to take control; that is if there are any adults in Washington.
