Good politics pre-election.  Good macro post-election.

One problem:  Commission of Audit has a reference that states:

This appears to be in direct conflict with raising the debt limit.

The Federal Government is not like a household!  Households can’t make their own currency and require that people use that currency to pay taxes.  I have addressed this and many other myths previously.
