Governor Tim Pawlenty says No to Increased Debt Ceiling
On FoxNews Sunday this morning, Governor Tim Pawlenty stated his opposition to raising the debt ceiling. His idea? Send the President emergency legislation which would allow spending to be sequenced in such a way as to avoid a default on government payments.
Pawlenty stated, “They (Congress) should not raise the debt ceiling. I believe they should pass legislation, allow them to sequence the spending as the revenues come in to make sure they don't default, and then have the debate about what other spending can be reduced.”
Very good idea. Is Congress listening?
