Sadly, Krauthammer is right. This is our future:
If we keep spending like this we’re going to have a president in a few years who’s gonna stand up and say that we are unable to pay Social Security or the military or benefits. And not because of a self-imposed crisis on the debt ceiling, but because we will be out of money. And that’s what the Republicans are trying to avert. The president is playing this like a real demagogue in pretending like we do not have a debt issue. We do. That’s what’s hanging above us and that’s what will destroy our credit rating in the end. Not a crisis that we create and get around as we have in the past, but a real one of a country that cannot pay its debts anymore which is where we’re headed.
