I see this whole scenario with the debt ceiling fight as a scam being run by both parties so that they can keep their jobs and do nothing.

all the politicians on capitol hill should be fired.

the solution to the problem is to eliminate career politicans.

True, the only way they keep their jobs in both parties is to keep us at each others necks.

I can't wait until interest rates go up and put their butts in a vice. It should be a lot of fun explaining to people why their taxes have to go up or services have to be cut to pay interest on the debt. The same people who are so stupid as not to care about the debt are the people who rent-to-own and who line up in front of payday loan places; complete financial idiots.

the GOP unfortunately has turned out to be the surrender monkeys of DC. Budget, debt, unemployment, military pensions and probably amnesty for all the illegals. Next year the phony repubs that vote democrat all the time hopefully will be replaced by real conservatives. The only thing that syops them from just putting a big 'D' on their letterheads is the tea party and fear of losing their jobs next year. Voters needs to make their fear a reality.

cant see that the real battle is the far far left spending democrat , big brother politicians and the left spending republican politicians . WHO in a bi partisan effort have achieved a debt of $55,000 per citizen ,OR $150,000 per working citizen. as if its a meaningless number. when in fact its TOTALLY UNSUSTAINIABLE.
[economists words}}..for everyone,including the federal government ,state and county governments...38 of which have filed for bankrupcy......WARNING $17 TRILLION ++++++++++ is not a game ,sports event,dance contest or lottery.... ITS YOUR COUNTRYS FUTURE

Most can't make change without the machine telling them how.

Boehner, McCain, Graham, Rubio, Ryan, Cantor, Christie, Bush and all of the other neocon bums are ruining the R party. That gang is worse than Democrats.

I don't know if you can say that...rangel, reid, hillary, and pelosi maybe the worst.

the guys you listed are dipshit flipfloppers. and that's pretty bad, I must admit.

but rangel is tax fraud criminal, hillary and reid are traitors, and pelosi...well, she takes the cake.. she said you must vote on something before you read it. now if that isn't stupid, what is?

I do agree with you though that they are all bums. and the reason why I say that is because they are all pro-illegal. they care more for foreigners than they do for americans and america.

they all to a letter believe in out-sourcing our jobs and factories. unbelievable.

I guess the reason I think they're worse is because they're all phonies. They're playing at being conservatives and they're far from it. The Democrats you list are beyond redemption and every reasonable person understands that, but at least they admit their stupidity. They even defend it. You can't even fix people like that. I'm hoping for the Republican party to fix itself by purging the neocons but the super rich will fight that.
