If everybody spends and doesn't save....
July 14, 2011 | 11:30 AM

.....then we get the situation we're currently in now, only at the local level. Yes, let's borrow and spend on things that we can arguably do with out all because someone thinks we "need" it. The problem is that EVENTUALLY the piper needs to be paid, but some don't seem to care about that part, we'll just "raise taxes". No one wants to prioritize because to do that requires decisions that might "upset" some people. Spending money for the sake of spending money is foolish. Does anyone stop and ask the question "does this need to be done NOW, or is it something that can wait"? Tough times require belt tightening, not spending like the proverbial drunken sailor.
