The problem is not the debt ceiling, it is about an Imperial President. Why do you think we have 3 equal branches of government? It is so none of them go insane, and act alone. We are a Representative Republic. Congress is a big part, and dictators will be impeached.

The Debt (US Constitution):
-
Article I Section. 8.
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;
-
Amendment 14 Section. 4.
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Anyone have case citations?

Who the hell is Porky and why the hell are you quoting Ninthman you liberal Cancer? Is porky one of those pigs in the pen that you roll around in liberal shit with? If not, maybe we can arrange that...you know pigs will eat anything...even bones.
Go find a liberal Cesspool to spam your mindless drivel on somewhere on some backdoor e-mail list underground with the rest of your liberal filth. You don't belong here, you're not wanted nor needed here, and TBH the admins here must not be paying much attention at all or they would've kicked your sorry liberal ass a long time ago.
You are nothing but a lying, coniving, evil manical piece of liberal Cancerous shit. Please go and do just one right thing in your life...just the first right thing you've ever done...DIE, so that we won;t have to waste a single bullet on you or any of our time disposing of you worthless shit bag of a carcass. You are not worth our time OR the bullet we'll be using on you if you don't fairly quickly. Just look at yourself in the mirror if you wanna speed that process along and build the balls to do it...look at what a digusting piece of lying, coniving, thieving, Cancerous shit you really are, and if you still don't have the guts to kill yourself as you should've done a long time ago? Then yeah, we'll send you back to hell eventually along with the rest who've already taken their place there.
God damn these bastards are so sickening! They are absolute filth...every fucking one of them! It's no wonder the entire world abhorrs them. Thank God that this former Country and it's people are smart enough to get rid of them, AND in Europe too! They were an abbortion that turned into an accidental birth, and than god we are fixing those mistakes!
I love it when you're deranged! When you're through with those paper dolls, you can gofuckyourself.

No, the lying Cancerous filth already forged that document and presented a nice clean brand new borth Certificate the the American people. Only problem with that was when you foge something, you can't properly age the paper as it would've over the years even in safe deposit box it WILL age. Half the people hell bent on Destroying this Country acted as if they believed it, and they very well may have been stupid enough to when you see what they've done already. The other 1/2 did not...you know, the half the Country now hunting those bastards with no bag limit? Yeah.

Congress approved both wars, bonghead.

There WASN'T any budget surplus!

Mr. Clinton purposefully decreased funding on many social programs near the end of the budget cycle. Technically since that money was budgeted from the previous year it created what appeared to be a surplus for the next year. That facade lasted about two years.

As for the guy who claims that we paid down the national debt for two years.... didn't happen. The national debt has continued to rise, even during the last two years of Clinton's presidency when supposedly we had a budget surplus.

In example. Your family eats $200 worth of food per month. In January you budget $200, same in February.... you break even for two months. In March you budget $100 dollars giving a $100 surplus but you still spend $200 on food. Now you have a real deficit of $100 but a budget surplus of $100.

You leftis are so fkn gullible!! LMAO

And he DID have sex with that woman, too!

Finally, the Left is admitting that the Constitution means nothing to them. Did Obama supporters know that the second term would be such a horrific nightmare for America? I sure hope not.
I guess you forgot your precious GOP eliminated all consideration of the constitution. Remember they appointed Scalia, Roberts, Alito and Thomas; people who openly admit they will never consider the constitution. Also remember the GOP passed the Pat Act to remove all freedoms for all citizens, and now you complain about the left?

What did the democrats do? They approved all those activist judges and extended the removal of our freedoms. I guess the democrats are right wingers also.

The Roberts Court is the most Constitutionalist Court in 50 years. Liberals do not recognize the Constitution, because they know so little about it. All they know is gimmee, gimmee, gimmee, mine, mine, mine!!
