Kudos to Congressman Dave Reichert for voting for the lifting of the debt ceiling, so that the United States can pay the bill for the spending the United States Congress has authorized.
The debt ceiling is a law from the last century from when the United States was a small nation, not the superpower industrial and financial powerhouse of the world. If we don’t pay our bills and default on the debt we incur, we would collapse the world economy.
Thank goodness Congressman Reichert listened to the adults in his party and voted to lift the ceiling. It is the responsible thing to do, and we should acknowledge his bravery in standing against the Tea Party, which would burn down the United States’ and the world’s economy in order to get their way.
