Not My Debt

With all the “news” surrounding the Christmas Eve Senate vote on “health care” “reform”, silently, another vote took place to increase the federal “debt ceiling”, which is now becoming an open roof. I sent the following letter (originally published by Tom Knapp) to each of “my” three Congresscriters:

Senator Graham,

I notice that the US House and Senate recently approved a $290 billion increase in the government’s “debt ceiling,” raising it from $12.1 trillion to $12.4 trillion.

I am not writing to yourself, Senator DeMint and Representative Henry Brown in order to urge any particular vote or action on the matter, but rather just to inform you that I AM NOT responsible for, nor do I intend to pay off, YOUR DEBTS.

I’ll be publishing this letter in one or more public spaces so that your creditors will be aware of this fact. If they’re going to loan money to the three of you and your 532 colleagues in the House and Senate, they may want to run credit checks first. Just so long as we’re crystal clear on the fact that I won’t be co-signing for you, the rest is between you and them.
