Debt Ceiling Politics

Can't just have a debt ceiling showdown, win the battle, and let the next Congress jack up spending and debt another time.

With 130% Debt-To-GDP ratio, and interest payments approaching the number 2nd largest expense in the Federal Budget, with a House Majority (2023-2025) ready to act, need to have real concrete goals:

-Thomas Jefferson
