Don't Blink John Boehner Speaker of the United States House of Representatives!
If you do, we will be right back here next year talking about raising the debt ceiling and taxes and "shutting down" the government again!

Let's for once actually solve the problem instead of pushing it pushing it back.

Yep, and we would have been in the same bet with McCain in office, or anybody else. This problem is MUCH bigger than just the executive branch, or any branches of our government. We all, we Americans, have collectively dug this whole. Spending more than we make, and we deserve whatever outcome awaits us.

Aw shucks. Lets just keep spending money we do not currently have. Our grandkids can be crushed by our debt.....but what the heck....we'll be dead. And if you do not like that idea, you are anti-people and anti-government. You are a Tea Party slob.

I agree. But we still keep voting these idiots back to Washington.
How aboyt starting term limits right here in Vermont? Our two Senators have been feeding at the public trough far too long. They have become residents of Washington, not Vermont. We see that when they want US to pay for their health care. But we also must pay for our own too.
The same thing is happening right here in Vermont. And New Hampshire but not as bad because they periodically get republicans in control.
The solution(not a perfect solution mind you but better than the alternative): Vote republican.

If the "powers that be" who advocate for programs that distribute government funds to people who draw more out than they contribute, and the number of people who draw out increases, the only solution will be to get the people who pay in more than they draw out to contribute more.
And then what do you suppose happens? Those people will try to hide what they make, or stop trying to make it since they do not get to keep it at a rate that they consider worthwhile.
I am glad that I am in the later stages of life, and not an up and comer.

Why are states like Vermont still receiving grants advocated for by Leahy to make drinking glasses at US Embassies, while military families are denied death benefits for fallen soldiers? We aren't that stupid are we? I don't think so,it must be intentional!

at least it's for something good and not totally wasted like these planes which were built with our tax $$ only to immediately be mothballed

If a past or future democrat faction doesn’t play the game of blackmail and threaten to bring us all to catastrophe to get its way...the the poor, weak and middle class will never gain parity or get ahead of the republican rich.

The rich will get vast republican extremist reforms when its their turn to run government...when the Democrat’s get control, blackmail of this type will limit liberal reform and even gain more extremist rollbacks for the weak and poor.

We are always playing with an uneven hand because those who we elect choose to play with a weak hand...

They are allowed to bypass a legitimate election with blackmail and the democrats can’t come up with sufficient force to overcome the rich...

Came across this fantastic quote from none other
than President Obama back when he was a senator.

'The fact that we are here today to debate
raising America's debt limit is a sign of
leadership failure. It is a sign that the US
Government can not pay its own bills. It is a
sign that we now depend on ongoing financial
assistance from foreign countries to finance
our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing America's debt weakens us
domestically and internationally. Leadership
means that "the buck stops here." Instead,
Washington is shifting the burden of bad
choices today onto the backs of our children
and grandchildren. America has a debt
problem and a failure of leadership.
Americans deserve better.'

Imagine what he would have said if the death benefits for fallen soldiers did not get paid when Bush was President.
There are numerous examples of his and his cronies hypocrisies.
He will not negotiate the federal budget with any pre-conditions set by the other party even though that is in and of itself a "pre-condition". So, the country has no budget, and has a President who refuses to negotiate a budget and blames the other party. Truly disingenuous.
He has been more divisive than any other president since Franklin Pierce.....truly the "Great Divider".

I've watched it.

One day a tree hugger is at my door with some propaganda, he had NY plates of his fuel hog vehicle and is trying to preach to me.
I recycle and don't drive a lot while using wood for heat and a wasteful moron is at my door about the environment.

it's a sad day when republicans become more crazy than democrats.
