RON HART: Government: Shut her down and prioritize

Published: Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 03:47 PM.

Whether the Senate gives itself more deficit spending ability is a sideshow. It will be like a student film compared to the drama that ultimately unfolds when rates rise and people do not want our paper. Now is the right time to start scaling back spending and adjusting our priorities with a government growing out of control.

Why not shut down “nonessential” parts of government and just re-open the parts we miss?
