Good Advice From A Founding Father

"It is a wise rule and should be fundamental in a government disposed to cherish its credit, and at the same time to restrain the use of it within the limits of its faculties, "never to borrow a dollar without laying a tax in the same instant for paying the interest annually, and the principal within a given term; and to consider that tax as pledged to the creditors on the public faith."" Thomas Jefferson

I'm glad our government is doing something to stimulate the economy. However, one major item that needs to get fixed is government spending. Congress needs to eliminate the failed earmark system and they need to work within a balanced budget. No more promises, no more debate - just do it.
