Imagine that - The politicians want to eliminate the debt ceiling. Well of course they do. That pesky old debt ceiling gets in their way of real out of control spending. The debt ceiling is a limit on how much debt the US government can have. Don't forget that Donald Trump loves playing with other people's money. He built his empire with enormous amounts of debt. Some debt deals worked and some didn't. Once again, it wasn't his money. The debt ceiling doesn't really stop the irresponsible spending. However, can you imagine there not being one? By the way, other people's money is our money.
