It's all just play money to Congress

So what is all the fuss about this debt ceiling, fiscal cliff and economic doomsday? As inept as this administration and Congress are in solving economic problems, there is an easy solution staring them right in their face. Raise the debt limit to $25 trillion -- no, make it $30 trillion. We will then have all the money this generation will ever need. And then when soon-to-be Treasurer Jack Lew comes on board and signs all our Monopoly money with his comical loop-de-loop signature, the dollar will be the envy of the world.

The only problem is that the Monopoly game has to end sometime. Not our worry ... good luck kids!
