It's because the yokels in Washington have spent us into the hole. They want to increase the debt limit to make payments on the interest of the national debt. *sigh* That's how a nation runs out of money...

I'm sure they'll end up with some sort of compromise, but even if they didn't, the money is there for SS--they could use common sense and cut unnecessary spending somewhere else to make those payments. But if they said and did that, there would be no political blackmail, and what's the fun in that?

Politicians...
