The debt limit question answers itself

We’re $14.3 trillion in debt — give or take another hundred trillion or so we keep off the books.

We’re on a course to keep going another trillion or so a year deeper in debt as far as the eye can see.

We have no plan — none, zero, nada — for how we are going to pay that debt.

So, what do you say we increase our credit limit by another, say, $2 trillion — you know, so we won’t have to have this embarrassing conversation again before President Obama has to face the voters?
