Letter to the Editor
President Obama is trying to figure out how to convince Republicans to raise the national debt limit to avoid America defaulting on its debt. I have a suggestion. Obama could switch parties and become a Republican.
When Republicans are in the white house the national debt ceiling is not an issue. It’s all borrow and spend like there’s no tomorrow. When Bush was president we went from a surplus to this massive debt. Under Bush Republicans voted 7 times to raise the debt ceiling. Vice president Cheney said then, “Reagan taught us that deficits don’t matter.” So the way I see it if Obama becomes a Republican we won’t have any problem raising the national debt limit. Republicans only oppose debt when Democrats are in power.
