Members of Congress must all have personal finance managers to manage their family budgets because otherwise Congress would be the largest single group of people filing for bankruptcy protection.
Why would any of us try to solve our family financial problems by cutting our spending to the bone, while at the same time trying to find ways to reduce our income? Yet this is exactly how Congress is attempting to solve our national budget problem.
The House of Representative is focusing solely on finding ways to cut spending and reduce taxes while ignoring the glaring need to also find ways of increasing income.
This is a plan for disaster that no sane person would use to solve their own financial problems.
