About an hour ago, Lynn Woolsey tweeted about the debt ceiling vote, writing,
RepLynnWoolseyRep. Lynn WoolseyAmericans know that paying their bills is the right thing to do — that means raising the debt ceiling.
Here is what Americans know. Americans know that when they go into debt, they don’t have the luxury of endlessly raising their own debt ceiling. Only the federal government does that. Rep. Woolsey’s mini lecture is laughable because she is only interested in spending MORE. Then she wants Americans to pay those endless bills. Those bills now amount to TRILLIONS of dollars, Congresswoman, and repayment will not even be possible for generations! Yet, you, Madam, keep voting for more and more spending. You also refuse to vote for any measures that would put the brakes on the out-of-control spending or would responsibly revise our enormous entitlement programs. Americans understand the concept of a balanced budget, Representative, but you DO NOT! So, don’t try to sermonize to us. You have NO credibility on the subject.
