Our government isn’t to big to fail – its a reckless entity that deserves to fail. Hopefully it fails in my lifetime. I will love to see it happen. Congress isn’t prepared for the fiscal year of lowering costs for gov. programs; so they raise the debt ceiling to provide relief efforts to hurricane victims. They are not doing anyone any favors. Just prolonging the inevitable. It can only go on for so long before people suffer more than they already have.
