So, the politicians finally agreed to a bad compromise with raising the debt roof for USA´s government.
Its weird that a country actually runs on borrowed money that they never ever have a chance of paying back, at least if they still are going to not even pay the interest rates of all the money they borrowed, and finds the only solution to be borrowing more money… I really can’t just see that its going to work out in the long run.
So the fight is between the Democrats and the Republicans (and Tea Party). The Democrats don’t want to cut too much in peoples welfare and help the poorest people who can’t afford much themselves, the Democrats want to do this with taxing the wealthiest people in USA a little more, because thats something they can afford.
That is not even discussable for the Republicans, who are being ruled/held hostage by the Tea Party movement, they want to cut in the official spending and cut in peoples welfare and give the poorest people in America more burdens, while letting the richest people in this country continue getting richer and richer and paying less and less taxes.
I can clearly say that this is how I understand the situation, and there is no way I would EVER vote for a republican if I had the right to vote in this country. GO DEMOCRATS!
