Personal Financial Expert Shreds US Over ‘Ridiculous’ Runaway Spending

  • Personal finance expert Dave Ramsey slammed the federal government over runaway spending as talks over the looming fiscal cliff between the White House and GOP remain stalled.
  • “It’s distressing because… money problems in our personal lives or in Washington are not really the problem. They’re the symptom of something else that’s going on in our lives,” Dave Ramsey said on FOX Business’ “Cavuto: Coast-to-Coast” Tuesday.
  • “In the case of Washington,” he continued, “the spending and the debt ceiling being continually raised and trillions upon trillions upon trillions of debt just continuing to pile in there, it’s just it’s not really the debt that’s the problem. It’s the indication that Washington truly thinks that they can buy our love. They truly think that they can’t say ‘no’ to anyone in the public.”
