Letter Best: Heated debate

September 29, 2013 

It's that season again when Congress unleashes its annual deluge of hot air before raising the federal debt limit again.

I suggest Congress be more environmentally responsible and abandon the fantasy that there actually is a limit on federal borrowing. Congress and the public know that after gasbagging, Congress will increase the debt limit. They always have. Maybe the reduction in hot air emanating from Washington, D.C., before a pre-ordained result will slow global warming.
