#1 IIRC the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution reuires + supports that the US as a Nation "pay its debts" + obligations + "live widin its means" which IMO only strongly infers "balanced budget" but NOT support for the concept of frivolous deficit spending, i.e. spending $$$ just because we can espec when the national budget is NOT in balance or in the black???
Where "budget surplus" now means "deficit/debt reudction" where the national budget remains prennially in the negative.
BECAUSE CLEARLY STATUTORY "... NOT GREATER THAN 6% OF GDP" = "37%" AND STILL COUNTING".

#2 Well considering that the US can only pay 60% of its bills with the current tax receipts... and we don't want to cut off any of that yummy government cheese... the spending spree will continue.
Until the US credit card is no longer accepted. Then all hell will break loose.
