(1) Saddle our children and their futures with even more crippling, unrepayable debt? or (2) not "pay [a few of] our bills"?
he spendaholics in Washington need an intervention. Like their booze-reeking counterparts, they won't ever admit they have a problem. It's just "one more drink" or "one more debt-ceiling raise" and, they promise, they'll cut back on the destructively irresponsible, out-of-control behavior.
But they never do.
No, really. Give them one more chance and they'll never, ever, ever go on another crazed drunken binge or wild-eyed spending spree ever, ever again.
And if you believe that, you'll believe anything. Including those emails from "the Barrister for the late Nigerian Prime Minister's estate" who "wish[es] to temporarily transfer $100,000,000.00 USD into your bank account, and I will do so as soon as you give me your routing, account, and social security numbers."
Next, spendaholics — like alcoholics — start into the convoluted rationalizations they feel can somehow justify, excuse, or tear your focus away from their downward spiral.
"Hey! I arr-ready overcharged my's cred-rit caad bu-bu-buying deeze twenty new bottles! Migh' as well *hic-up!* drink 'em all since I haff t-t-to pay ferr 'em all anywaaaay! I'ller juss askie my-ah *burp!* crejit crad comp-comp-nee to raiser-ah my lim-mi-mit! *Barf!*"
Makes perfect sense. That is, if you and sober reside in different
zip codes solar systems.
Finally, both spendaholics and alcoholics will desperately try to shift the blame, making it sound like it's all your fault they're this way.
"I have no choice but to drink (or spend) because you've turned my whole life (or my country's economy) into a living hell!"
Actually it's a living hell because of their drinking (or spending). But that's something they never want to hear now.
At that point, they leave you no alternative: Unless you want to see them bring themselves down along with everybody around them, you must intervene. It's for their own good.
That means forcing them to completely quit their drinking or deficit spending.
Otherwise, they'll never find any solution to their extremely dangerous problem.
