That's not then way businesses run. Don't we want the government to be more like the private sector?

Businesses deep into their credit lines are not healthy. It leads to catastrophe many times.

Businesses can run significant debt if their valuation supports it. This clearly qualifies.

America is the biggest business in history, and they're not even allowed to run a profit.

The fiscally healthy people and businesses at least break even. The really healthy ones have cash on hand to make purchases and/or to pay for projects.

That's an interesting theory, but fat chance of being followed

It has happened a few times in history. It is possible. If Clinton and a republican congress can do it why shouldn't others?

If a person or business is as irresponsible as the government they won't survive long.
