One would think that is a very strong message that it can no longer be business as usual but apparently not. Doesn't seem to bother them that their credit is almost at it's legal limit, we'll just raise taxes so we can borrow more. Yes, you still have to repay the debt but just like a credit card once you close it so it can't be used, the interest drops. Try it sometime!!
