When I heard Congress passed the budget which will raise the debt by almost two trillion dollars over the next two years, I thought of the song “Sixteen Tons” by Tennessee Ernie Ford. However, unlike the song, the budget is to be taken seriously. The budget not only raises the debt, it fully funds Planned Parenthood, DACA is still in place the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is not going to be repealed.
If those who opposed raising the debt ceiling in 2011 would have stood on the same principles we would not find ourselves deeper in debt while funding the murder of nearly three thousand babies daily. I believe it’s time for Conservatives to act conservatively.
