All families SHOULD do this, but the government does NOT "plan intelligently for the future". In fact, most of Congress plans for themselves (both parties). If they were dealing with their money (as they do with family money), projects would be planned better, function better, be cost effective, and actually work!

True statements but a bit off topic. The point is that, in years' past, the Republicans actually thought about the impact of their decisions. They wouldn not close down the government especially because they know it was a loss for the United States. There was never enough upside to justify the closure but they went ahead anyway because they thought they could get someone else to pay the tab. Each household will pay the tab.
