CNN Headline "Debt Crisis Averted" ... Was it? Who caused it?Submitted by RC Liberty on Thu, 10/17/2013 - 12:25
The media's description and narrative of what has been happening the last three weeks is just laughable. They say the "debt crisis" is "resolved" because the debt ceiling has been raised. They blame Tea Party Republicans for "creating" the debt crisis. When in fact, as we all know, they are attempting to "solve" the debt crisis which has been created by the establishment, go along to get along, politicians who can't see past the next election.
One positive that may come out of this is that people who have been watching the news have heard repeatedly that there is a debt crisis. We should encourage them to look into the crisis and ask questions about it. Why did it occur? Is it likely to occur again? Why or why not? How can a future debt crisis be avoided? Is it by addressing the debt by cutting spending, or by not allowing politicans to voice their opinions on it in any effective way?
In my opinion, The most important question to be asked is below.
What is the main reason the debt crisis occured?
A) Politicians have been spending too much money for too many years.
B) Tea Party politicans made an attempt to stop the over spending, for once, which caused the debt crisis all of the sudden.
C) Something else?
What do you think caused the debt crisis?
