It's not Obama's government, you dolt. It's Congress' government.
The debt ceiling is simply allowing the Government to pay for what Congress has already appropriated.
You realize that all spending originates in the House, right?
The same House that's been controlled by Tea Turd freakazoids for 6 years.
Actually, the Constitution requires that all bills of revenue originate in the House. Spending bills can originate in the Senate.

Money that does not exist cannot be appropriated. That's the difference between the budget and appropriations. Considering that we haven't had a budghet since Obama took office, I can understand why most people wouldn't even know the difference and confuse appropriations with budgeting.
If the debt ceiling is reached, it must be raised to appropriate funds in excess of revenue.

Please compare the material you are being indoctrinated with to actual facts.
Thank you.

Published unemployment rates have lost much of their meaning because of the constantly shrinking percentage of the population considered to be in the labor force.
Just like the definition of "inflation" is an absolute joke when the interest rate is artificially kept low when it should long time ago have been high. This is what happens when whoever prints the currency can do so with no accountability. Just like Dr Paul says, we need to audit the fed. We cannot live much longer on this lie. Well, liberals want to, but the rest of us have a RESPONSIBILITy to the ones coming after us ->

Find out if this is a place you want your kids to have theirs the way things are going and if not, do something with it. That means not violence, terror or voting republican. Give the libs a blank sheet for some more years. Let's see how tough and hard they can get. As long as nasty liberals are out of your face, all you have to do is really keep an eye on the dow and likewise the interest rate. Make sure your houses are refinanced at FIXED rate. THIS will be the best protection when the country gets Weimarized. Also, this is the time to start brushing up on those homesteading books, you all know ;)

Be good and be thoughtful and don't engage liberals. It only makes you think everybody is like that. Not true. There are many sane people out there that simply do not want a part of it, OR still does not know what is at stakes.

Former U.S. vice president Al Gore's television channel is facing criticism for its decision to sell its liberal-oriented network for $500 million to the pro-terrorist and anti-American Al-Jazeera, he would have sold it to al QUIDA but that would be too honest, so as LIBS do they GO THROUGH THE BACKDOOR
And just like my brother in Chicago, he sold right before the taxes go up. My brother closed on 12/30. He said to Realtor back in October he would take the house off the market if it wasn't sold before 2013. That seemed to help. Al Gore is the quintessential example of liberal hyppocracy. Always has been, always will be, IMHO.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

If there is no money, how will gov't employees and contractors and debtors etc., etc., etc be paid? With sea shells?

If nobody is being paid money, who's going to do anything?

If nobody does anything, how does the government continue functioning?

If the government ceases functioning, how does it remain in existence?

You have to anser the question of where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government or the government collapses.

In Obama's plan, does money start grwoing on trees?

SIMPLE, CLEAR and LOGICAL.

Too much to grasp for most liberals in absolute denial. From the rest of us: I was wondering how to simplify this mess enough so even a registered democrat could get it. You did it. Thumbs up.

Not sure what your point is, this is a fact. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not true. Ironic position for someone whose name is "Truth is no SIN".

Well, I could be inbred, if my maternal Spanish great grandfather was related to my maternal great grandmother who was the daughter of former slaves in Louisiana, who had a daughter who married a French/German/Jew man she was related to, who had a daughter who married a Irish/Scot/English man she was related to.
Yup. There's the possibility of being inbred with that heritage.)))))

YEAH BLACKs The President gave members of Congress and other federal workers a pay raise.

Congressman Sanford Bishop says he'll decline the raise and urges his fellow lawmakers to do the same. Bishop joined Congressman John Barrow in urging the House leadership to bring legislation to the floor to stop the pay adjustment scheduled to start in March.

Bishop issued a statement saying it is inappropriate for members of Congress to receive a pay increase of any size while American families and taxpayers continue to face tough economic times.

Members of Congress make about $174,000 dollars a year.

You should probably see the irony that helping disaster victims is coming from the right and that ensuring the safety of Americans is one of the few roles of the federal government.

Handing out food stamps like they're candy while strangling the job market at the same time...not so much.

Spending billions on pointless "research" projects...not so much either.
