I never have understood PLANNING to spend more than you take in. In times of war ok, but in general, no. Just as I don’t get tax cuts when you you don’t have enough funding in the first place. I sure don’t plan to spend more than I take in, and I don’t volunteer to take a pay cut when I can’t pay my bills in the first place. I am a social liberal but a financial conservative, what would be in an ideal world a Librarian, but they take it to far. If Democrats and Republicans would work together to keep each other in check, that would be the best. Until then, start cutting the kids allowance until they learn to play nice.
