I have news, spending more than revenues raises the debt.

When Congress passing spending that they know they add to the debt, don't they know they will surpass that debt ceiling? This is why the debt ceiling is stupid & should be eliminated.

Evidently, Flack thinks not paying his bills is keeping him out of debt.

Republicans as the Female Reproductive System in Politics
As Editor of this site, I cannot use the word I wish to use.
At the Republican National Convention in Florida, Code Pink activists dressed up in giant pink consumes designed to look like … well … to keep things polite here …“lady bits” as some might say to convey the message without the word. They were decorative pink costumes that look like hot dog bun costumes but altered.
Never has there been a better metaphor for the Republicans in Washington, DC.

The Obamacare Swindle (It’s Not What You Think)
Health-care reform isn’t going anywhere. But that hasn’t stopped Republicans from using it to raise money from gullible Tea Partiers who want it defunded.
House Republican leadership does not want a government shutdown over Obamacare, but the agitation of conservative activists might make one inevitable.
That’s not good news for Republicans. After the debt ceiling crisis in 2011, congressional approval ratings dipped to their lowest ever, with Republicans taking a huge hit; in one survey, 71 percent of respondents disapproved with the GOP’s handling of the debt limit. In another, 68 percent said the same (PDF).
Conservatives must know they have nothing to gain politically from taking this stance, which raises the question: why do it? One answer, as suggested by the National Review’s Robert Costa in August, is money. Tea party organizations, he writes,“aren’t worried about the establishment’s ire. In fact, they welcome it. Business has boomed since the push to defund Obamacare caught on. Conservative activists are lighting up social media, donations are pouring in, and e-mail lists are growing.”[Emphasis mine]
To illustrate the point, Heritage Action for America—the political arm of the Heritage Foundation, a right-wing think tank—has a standing website devoted to collecting donations.“Conservatives in Congress have proposed using the fight over a key budget bill, called the continuing resolution, to strip funding from this law. But Establishment Republicans and special interests in Washington are resisting this plan,” it explains. But there’s no reason to panic:“You can ensure Obamacare is defunded,” it asserts. All it takes is a small donation to Heritage.“Time is of the essence. Please donate now to ensure we have the resources to fight and win.”
....Of course, no matter how much money these groups collect, the Affordable Care Act is here to stay. And they know it.“Even they admit privately that they won’t succeed in defunding Obamacare,” notes The Wall Street Journal in a recent editorial urging “kamikaze” Republicans to give up their self-defeating crusade against the law. As President Obama said in a speech on Monday,“the Affordable Care Act has been the law for three-and-a-half years now. It passed both houses of Congress. The Supreme Court ruled it constitutional. It was an issue in last year’s election, and the candidate who called for repeal lost.” Simply put, there is no conceivable scenario that ends with Obama dismantling his signature legislative achievement.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09...
If there were no money involved, I’d call this a misguided bid for relevance. As it stands, the effort to defund Obamacare is a lucrative business. Which is why it continues to go forward, even as the odds for success dip to the quantum level. For the lawmakers and groups spearheading this movement, Tea Party voters aren’t dedicated citizens as much as they are gullible customers; ripe targets for their brand's commercialized outrage.
Ted Cruz may style himself as a leader, but the reality is that he and his fellow travelers are just the latest in a long line of shameless grifters. And like the presidential campaigns of Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain, this grift will continue for as long as there is money to earn, and Republican voters to con.
Ted Cruz never once said he wanted to shut the government down. That's your buds Nancy Piglosi and Harry Reid the scare crow.

Lindsey Graham Clowns Tea Party Republicans Who Want To Defund Obamacare But Don't Know How

GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham joked on Tuesday that the inescapable fact that shutting down the government will not stop Obamacare was merely a "technical" detail that doesn't interest Republicans bent on a shutdown.

The irony of the ongoing debate over the threat to shut the government in order to stop the health care reform law is that because of the way Obamacare is funded, doing so will leave it largely unaffected. Most of Obamacare is funded through what's known as mandatory spending, while the House only has the power to block discretionary funding.(The Obamacare insurance subsidies are paid as refundable tax credits and the Medicaid portion is not annually appropriated, meaning that Congress can't pull funding.)

DROP THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS ISSUE PURSUIT FIRST.
STOP THE FIGHTING AT THE SAME TIME.
GET PEOPLE BACK TO THEIR USUAL AND ORDINARY LIVES AND ACTIVITIES.
THEN after that, THERE ARE LOTS OF TIME TO TALK AND FIGURE OUT CHEMICAL WEAPONS, and for talks of what the Syrian people want in regard to see what rebels have to say.
Otherwise, by using chemical weapons issue, it will never have an end and will have another Iraq bad crisis drama--NOBODY CAN PROVE ASSAD USED SARIN GAS ON 8/21, FROM rockets or anything, as Assad said He did not use sarin gas. Rebels had sarin gas, said by CIA that any trouble makers might have done it or not, as this argument will lead to another Iraq terrified cycle again--why would US bomb Syria because of uncertainty of, to pursuit chemical weapons again (this time US military to Syria will suffer much worse as using even ground troops might even lose too many that had to be out)? If to have a long-term unrest violences upon a big toll of US, that will be just like another Iraq by insisting of WMD like Bush, which was not true?

They are not the chemical weapons which cause disaster and destruction to the Syrian people, but the infighting form Muslim rebels, and the threat of US strike .

These civil violences have destroyed the everyday life of the Syrian people, from schools, to work places, to homes, that people feel unsafe that many have to flee because of all the violences doing on both sides.

As It is not possible to have Syria regime to give up, it is required that rebels must stop then, so that people can return to homes and usual living.

The only thing necessary is that rebels give up fighting, so that Syrian people can come back to ordinary activities.

Obama is wrong by keeping on talking on chemical weapons, for that will destroy more lives and cause large unstable activities of the region, where lots of more people can never return to their ordinary activities again.

It is never about chemical weapons issue, because by far that does not affect most people.

Instead of having Syrian people come back to their usual lives, Obama's vicious way of siding with rebels to encourage them fighting and inflaming on chemical weapons issue has resulted the destruction of daily routine activities of the Syrian people.

When that is done, go from there, and talk chemical weapons later, as people get back to their lives in order first.

The stand to have Syrian people to do ordinary lives and activities has not anything to do with chemical weapons. Yet, using chemical weapons indulging has worsened the Syrians to get back to their way of life because Syrians are not killed by sarin gas at all, by far, but will be killed BY US strike by doing chemical weapons issue.

So, they have to give up the chemical weapons issue and Rebels fighting first, as that is the only way of Syrian people can go back home, go to schools, and go back to work as they need those first.
Since Syrian people are not afraid of sarin gas, what is the point of Obama by talking about sarin gas to strike to kill them?

CONCLUSION IS the NO STRIKE AND NO HIT OF SYRIA ,as whatever WILL BE, if it is BASED on CHEMICAL Weapons issue, when Syria abandons agreement on chemical weapons proposal, at the same time with evidence of sarin gas usage or not by any one.

THROW AWAY WHAT OBAMA SAYS.
Otherwise, by using chemical weapons issue, it will never have an end and will have another Iraq bad crisis drama.

Actually the debt ceiling should never be raised, gone over, and should be lowered as the debt goes down. Spending more money by borrowing it is stupid.

Some House Republicans pretty “angry” that Boehner can’t get Cruz to shut up and sit down

“Here we are complaining about a president who can’t lead [on Syria], who leads us into this morass and we’re doing the same things to ourselves on ObamaCare, on the debt ceiling,” one conservative complained.
