For 8 years they refused to raise the debt limit saying it was already too high. Now it apparently is too low - when they have spending power without a presidential veto. They ran as fiscal conservatives. Let them prove it. Obama lowered the deficit by 2/3 without help from congress. The last two republican administrations have raised it by trillions. Fiscal conservatives. Let them lower the deficit. Then they can raise the debt limit. See if they can. I don't believe it. They are liars and incapable of doing what they say because they are enriching the top 1% and letting businesses and corporations run amok.
