The federal government shutdown that has idled hundreds of thousands of workers is starting to ripple through states, which are now laying off employees and warning of thousands of additional furloughs if the budget stalemate is not resolved soon.

I'm so happy Congress finally agreed to sign off of that new $1,500 Billion line of credit. For a few days there, we thought we were going to have an awkward and painful debate about America's spending habbits and bleak financial future. But what a relief; the Republicans caved and now the Democrats can kick back and take a load off knowing that America's credit card still works.

You do realize that this whole thing was over actually paying down the debt.. Not add to the debt..
You hopefully understand that a default would mean more than a discussion on any topic. It would be nuking our economy and sparking a recession that would make the last one seem a pleasant day dream in comparison.
That this whole thing was over nothing more than procedural vote that was enabling the country to actually pay the debt.
That even from the beginning any one with sense knew this would be a stupid move in shutting down the government. Even partially. That once more we may face a down grade in the country credit rating because of these shenanigans. Making all the more harder to pay down the debt and slow the economic recovery even further.
You do understand all that.. Or is that beyond your ability to understand that much common sense.

Simple. The sequester dropped spending and the deficit decreases quickly every year. So, Raise the da.. taxes on the rich and BOOM, problem solved. It's not rocket science.
