A Pragmatic Perspective on the National Debt Crisis

The debt-ceiling crisis has precipitated a huge debate throughout the country. Americans are waiting anxiously to see whether the president and Congress can forge a compromise, which brings stability to the country and enables the U.S. to meet its financial obligations. The country has faced similar predicaments in the past, but few have been so contentious and chock full of political theatrics and histrionics. 

Young people everywhere are presenting idealistic solutions to America’s current predicament. I strongly urge this group to temper its protestations. It is high time to inject some realism and practicality into a debate that has been all about ideals.
