Shutdown highlights some serious problems
Our recent government shutdown debacle is like a group of government officials standing around an enormously overloaded truck that is loaded to the brim with government debt.
This overloaded government truck, which represents our current debt ceiling, is not only too wide to cross a fragile bridge but is too tall, as well. Onlookers become alarmed when politicians and government experts begin to inspect the stopped, overloaded truck, but they are only inspecting the truck to make sure that all the tires are properly inflated while ignoring everything else.
