I am so sick and tired of the national bickering over the debt ceiling. Why can't we return to the good ol' days of 2001-2006 when the Republicans controlled the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. Back then the Republicans did not care about deficits and debt ceiling limitations. They simply spent money like crazy and reduced the taxes for the wealthiest Americans. George Bush never vetoed a spending bill. Even VP Cheney said that "the American people don't care about deficits."
I sure miss those good ol' days. Oh well, I guess I'm just dreaming.
