$14 trillion.

And counting.

Fox on top of a bill that's now over the top, and the excuses for putting off addressing it are now over ... Period.

Seven months.

That's how long it took to go from a national debt of $13 trillion to $14 trillion.

Numbers so big, so staggering, and so scary ... That you would think the last thing anyone would be considering in Washington is raising that debt ceiling to cover it all.

But they are. They always do. Easier to extend the credit line than address the spending that keeps blowing us past it.

Because we're up against the wall again, folks.

And fast approaching yet another day of reckoning.

Probably around mid-March. That's when we hit the ceiling, and if we don't do something, everything hits the fan.

Now one option is to just hike the limit. Again.

Wouldn't that be great if we could do that with our visa bill? Just extend the line.

But we can't do that, can we?

The government can. And does. Repeatedly.

There is another option, of course.

Like stopping the spending.

Because now we're all just spent.

So we have a choice.

Extend the line. Again.

Or address the underlying spending. Now.

But now politicians steeped in Washington’s ways, say it's too late to do anything now.

...that we've only got a couple of months.

I disagree.

We can do a lot right now, if we agree to cut a lot of spending. Right now.

But I keep hearing how we can't do anything right now.

But we can agree to extend an endless credit line months from now.

That, we can do, because we fear going insolvent if we don't.

Even those this bait-and-switch spending game is what's making us insolvent in the first place.

It's time to stop this nonsense.

By stopping the spending.

And sending a message to the world.

We've hit our limit.

And now...We're hitting back.
