A Simple Explanation

* Democrats don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* Republicans don't understand THE DEBT CEILING
* Liberals don't understand THE DEBT CEILING

SO - Allow me to explain.

Let's say you come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood.

Your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

What do you think you should do? Raise the ceilings or pump out the crap?

Your choice is coming in November. Don't miss the opportunity.

The notion of choice in the upcoming election is just an illusion.

That is a truly ignorant explanation

The debt ceiling is a "should we or should we not pay the debts we have already accrued" ceiling. The problem is that lawmakers completely ignore the debt ceiling when making/passing legislation that requires funding (e.g. the budget).

Holding it hostage is "we aren't going to pay the money that we already agreed to pay by passing all this legislation in order to score political points" rather than an actual austerity measure.

Your scenario is incorrect.

It's more like having sewage all the way up to your ceilings. Then having it completely clean up and then not paying for the bill.

Any politician, journalist, etc who tries to say otherwise should be run out of a job.
