Conservative Rep Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) says the debate is between bankruptcy and solvency

(By Ed Morrissey, Hot Air) - Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) brings the budget debate to this basic question: will we continue to spend money we don’t have, or will the federal government return to responsible management after decades of debt expansion? After wryly thanking the Fox anchor for repeating the hyperbolic and demagogic comments of Democrats over the issue of entitlement reform, McCotter explains that Republicans may not have all the answers — but so far, the GOP is the only party offering 'any' answers. That puts the issue in stark relief — will Americans cheer for solvency or bankruptcy?

Thaddeus McCotter: "The Democrats’ doing nothing and spending everything approach means that we’ll have bankruptcy; the Republican reform approach means that we’ll have solvency."
