"This Is Why The GOP Wants To Move On From A Government Shutdown And Threaten A Debt Ceiling Crisis Instead
Business InsiderBy Brett LoGiurato | Business Insider – 1 hour 50 minutes ago

AP

House Republicans moved Thursday to to shift focus from a fight over the continuing resolution to keep the government funded to a battle over raising the nation's debt ceiling.

Even though failure to raise the debt limit would result in far more dire consequences for the economy than a government shutdown, polling presents compelling evidence for Republicans to pursue a fight on the debt ceiling.

Numerous polls have shown that the GOP stands to take the brunt of the blame from the American public in the event of a shutdown. According to a recent CNN/ORC poll, 51% would blame Republicans for a shutdown, while only 33% would blame President Barack Obama.

Polling on the debt ceiling is much less certain, and it reflects a lack of understanding from the American public about the consequences of hitting the debt ceiling.

House Speaker John Boehner's office passed around Thursday morning a Bloomberg poll that shows Americans do not support a debt-ceiling increase without any conditions. In fact, 61% said it's " right to require spending cuts when the debt ceiling is raised even if it risks default."

That's a top-line number that Republicans think they can use to win the argument — and, more importantly, bring Obama to the negotiating table.

Of course, there are two big caveats to the poll number. First, by a 56-26 margin, Americans oppose the cuts of the so-called "sequester." Those were the cuts that went into effect earlier this year, as a result of the last debt-ceiling crisis. So though they may support vague "cuts" with the hike of the debt limit, Americans weren't happy with the last cuts that resulted from the negotiations.

The other caveat is that the GOP plan on the debt ceiling isn't exactly about spending cuts — it's a laundry list of conservative wishes, only some of which have anything to do with reducing the debt...."

I just amazes me how f*cking stupid you right whiners are.
"OMG OMG the poor in the cities are mooching of the government OMG OMG"
Then when a man goes into these poor neighborhood & helps these communities set up mechanism to help pull themselves out of poverty, you f*cking idiots have a fit.
Community organizers work within the community with their businesses, social organizations & churches to set up job training, child care, to help people improve their financial standing & become more self sufficient.
Bullsh*t!!! If these community organizers were successful with 5% of their cliental each year then poverty would of been eliminated 15 years ago. Obama was a community organizer because he couldn't hold a real job with his drug habit and it keep him in daily contact with his drug suppliers.

Job training? One of the top liberal scams out there. Set up a non-profit and put your family and friends on the payroll. Then you hire the idiot relatives of several politicians and zingo, you get government funding. If even 5% of the people they trained each year actually got jobs unemployment would of been eliminated 15 years ago.

Free inner city child care allows the baby mommas to go out unconstrained with children to shoplift and score their daily drugs.

Community organizers perpetuate the problems in the inner cities by creating and maintaining a permanent slacker cliental. Liberals call it creating job security.

That's kind of a personal question. I've never purchased my own medical insurance, I've always been covered by my employer(s). I do have my own life insurance so my wife can continue to live in the lap of luxury after my demise, I was going to name Flack and Carol as co-beneficiaries but they have both since pissed me off with their lies, slander, and stupidity.

For dumazz realDave,
since my other source was not acceptable...
"Specifically, the IRS did not account for or attempt to quantify approximately $67 million of indirect ACA costs incurred for Fiscal Years 2010 through 2012. Indirect costs include, for example, providing employees with workspace and information technology support."
http://www.treasury.gov/tigta/auditreports/20...
Note how this is not presented as "missing 67 million" like your other source.

It sad that 67 million was for indirect costs charged to different accounting & not the fund to set up for the ACA.

You people are sofa ing stupid, you can't even understand it even its right in front of your face.

Laughlin has gambling casinos along with the same type of water activities as Havasu. BTW I was referring to the Havasu Heat, a pro team which has apparently moved to a different town. It appears that many of the Western League teams moved or folded__too bad that was a nifty league that featured many former major league players.

My God Grampy. You are quite the liar.

Obama sought out a Community Organizing job after graduation from Columbia.

He was employed by a private church organization - and did't set up any non profit of his own.

Helping people get jobs, get better trained with community help.

And you b*tch about it. You people are truly dumber than sh*t.

Since you are liberated...
Tell us about your last anal experience and did it involve a gorilla?
Four of Leosanna's six children were fathered by gorillas, one by a goat and one by Lily's husband who bears a striking resemblence to Al Sharpton.

Female gorillas are the usual instigators of mating. When Leosanna comes into her monthly cycle she starts staring at the silverback, often with her lips tucked in and following him around. She may also touch him up, slap the ground, sit in his lap and masturbate in front of him to get him going as some male gorillas need a bit of a stimulation to get them in the mating mood!

Males can also start the routine by posturing, flexing their muscular bodies, chestbeating, stancing and generally showing off in front of the female by wearing their pants extremely low and hiding their faces with hoodies, which can be very beautiful and awesome to see, but it is usually the female that starts the ritual.

Leosanna has been seen mating face to face like humans, but the more usual posture is the male mounts her from the rear (Putin-Empty Suit style). This goes on for a few days each month until she gets pregnant. The government then gives her direct deposit for another mouth to feed, which allows ample time to continuously post on Topix.

If your financial position is so limited at your age that you still need life insurance, Homer needs to get busy....but your life insurance will make the next guy happy.
