The debate over the debt ceiling will be played out again in January. Obama and Reid got their way this time. But the vast majority want the deficit under control.<quoted text>
You people can sit here all day foretelling the future but it means absolutely nothing. Employers have NOT been dumping coverage and it is highly unlikely they are going to do so. Dropping insurance for spouses who have access to insurance through their own employer makes sense. Cutting hours for part-time employees (who never had employer health insurance)so they can qualify for the exchange makes sense. What doesn't make sense is screaming "the sky is falling" when an acorn falls on your head.
So do you think Obama and Reid will dig in their heels again rather than compromise over a budget and decreasing government spending? Or will they sit down with House Republicans this time and work out a compromise to avoid the debt ceiling crisis repeating itself?
Of course, Democrats will pull the immigration issue out of their sleeve to distract us and blame Republicans again, but I really do think the American people are starting to tire of their power grabbing games and overplaying their hand the next time could backfire. Do you?
