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.
Wonderful logic from our retarded resident, crybaby chimp!! Take two bananas out of petty cash and call me in the morning....

his might not be as big of a deal if the United States ever paid down its debt, but I can only find six years since 1929 where this actually occurred Ė 1930, 1947, 1948, 1951, 1956, and 1957. There is no chance of fiscal recovery with a president who, in the face of financial disaster, dares to submit a budget containing multi-trillion dollar per year deficits into the future. Until the right leadership is in place, you, I, our children and our grandchildren can look forward to living in a nation which basically owns us. Is this the same Republic that we inherited from our forefathers? I think, not.
Barack Obama has taken this nation in precisely the wrong direction; he has taken us beyond the point of no return. Yet there is still hope, but such hope, of necessity, lies beyond the realm of partisan politicians. Faith without works is dead. This isnít World War II. Itís time to dramatically reduce the federal governmentís footprint. Itís time to cut government spending. Itís time to lower (not raise) the debt ceiling. Tomorrow will be too late.
So you are finally joining me in blaming Reagan. Kudos to you Flack.

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.)

And those are the ones that are on them every day-for the rest of their lives-another 50 million take them on a sporadic basis. Do you think that is normal?
And yes I love Rush.
I'm in agreement with you about antidepressant drugs; however, if a person is truly psychotic, what is the remedy?
What about pain medication like oxycontin? You're boyfriend Rush has parties with bowls of them on various tables in his house.

And there are millions like her. Of course the Republicans have no desire to change the existing laws so to that effect they are just using Carol and the millions like her.

There used to be a group of those nutjobs holding Bibles and harassing a womens clinic nearby; the clinic finally moved. These people are sick in the head.

<quoted text> Suppose you spend more money this month than your income. This situation is called a "budget deficit". So you borrow (ie; use your credit card). The amount you borrowed (and now owe) is called your debt. You have to pay interest on your debt. If next month you spend more than your income, another deficit, you must borrow some more, and you'll still have to pay the interest on your debt (now larger). If you have a deficit every month, you keep borrowing and your debt grows. Soon the interest payment on your loan is bigger than any other item in your budget. Eventually, all you can do is pay the interest payment, and you don't have any money left over for anything else. This situation is known as bankruptcy.
"Reducing the deficit" is a meaningless soundbite. If the DEFICIT is any amount more than ZERO, we have to borrow more and the DEBT grows.
Each year since 1969, Congress has spent more money than its income. The Treasury Department has to borrow money to meet Congress's appropriations. Here is a direct link to the Congressional Budget Office web site's deficit analysis. We have to pay interest* on that huge, growing debt; and it cuts into our budget big time.
You want to let these clowns spend unchecked by getting rid of the debt ceiling. What a moran!!!
When the government reaches the debt ceiling (just like a credit card limit) the only action necessary is to reduce spending to current income.

Well, while I do not think they will ever be successful in totally outlawing abortion in this country; they are busy whittling away at womens rights from state to state. They are sick, sick, sick in the head mental cases from hell.
Vaginal probes, ultrasounds, forced counseling by religious organizations, how many states have completely closed down abortion clinics? Making it impossible for a poor woman to get there. Making it illegal for it to be covered by insurance; for krissakes if you're paying for health insurance, why isn't everything included? Outlawing birth control pills and the morning after pill? They're batshyt cwayzeeeee.

You want to kill your future go ahead but you saying that people trying to stop the killing of innocent babies is sick in the head is some very dark humor I must say.

So while on vacation I had to listen to some rightwing moron stating how Obama promised to close the base at Guantanamo yet his company was asked to provide a bid for more infrastructure.

Folks, Obama never said he wanted to close the base, he wanted to close the detention camp.

Also he was denied funding the closure of the camp by Congress, they would not fund this.

Also contrary to rightwing belief Obama is not a dictator so he cannot just close the camp on his own.

I gave him a pass as I was on vacation.

Go look at charts and graphs for the last 40 years and point out the big spenders and when we really started to crank up the spending. I'll wait.
