$34,640,731,770.70 PER MONTH not 18 billion. I do not know if republikans are lying or are just too stupid to do the numbers themselves. In either case, its just plain wrong, like everything else they do.
<quoted text>This is where you are wrong, just like the Ruler. The Fed takes in $225 Billion a month in tax revenue and our financial obligations total $18 Billion a month,(which includes the interest on the monies borrowed). WE WILL NOT DEFAULT!
This leaves $207 Billion a month to run the govt AND to fund Obamacare. It's not enough to do either, much less both! The Ruler needs the debt ceiling to be raised in order to continue funding Obamacare, it hasn't been paid for yet! This is why he's so adamant about not compromising!
On the other hand, the Republicans are compromising. How? First they wanted to repeal Obamacare. After realizing that wouldn't make it through the Senate, they opted to defund Obamacare with the first debt ceiling debate in March. After trusting the Ruler and his cronies in March, only to be stabbed in the back, now they've chosen to delay Obamacare for one year. The Ruler still refuses to negotiate, although he's agreed to give big business a one year delay!
The Ruler is a liar and cannot be trusted! Boehner knows this, the Republican Party knows this, and a majority of Americans know this! That's why his approval rating is at 37%, an all time low, although you don't hear the state run media reporting this fact!
Had his dumbass actually proposed a budget,(which is required by The Constitution), the Republicans wouldn't have had any leverage in this fight!
