love the democrat scare tactics...
"if the debt ceiling isn't raised, no more social security checks"!
IS BULLS#IT!
and SHAME on the media for NOT exposing that lie!

the ONLY way social security won't get paid (along with the military AND the debt interest) is if obama SAYS don't pay it!
there is more than enough money to keep ALL vital programs, entitlements and defense funded.
you're car loan interest, or mortgage interest WON'T go up

Carey, I hope Grover Norquist or one of his arm-twisting comrades starts a new pledge where everyone signs it and promises NOT to whine when the debt default is in place.

Rep. Joe Walsh to Obama: Quit Lying


Asking the communist-bred, communist-raised, communist-mentored, lifelong communist-associating kenyan subversive fraud to "quit lying".....is like asking liberals and progressives to stop hating America and renounce their whacked anti-American indoctrination.

Not gonna happen.

Do you also hope Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Maxine Waters go to jail?

How about Eric Holder? Barry Obama? Diane Feinstein? Charlie Rangel? Nancy Pelosi? Harry Reid?

Oh wait, you love those traitorous corrupt scumbags.

The lengths the republicans will go to protect the wealthy.

This has hurt the Republican's chances in 2012.

He he he...

voters can "weigh in" all they want to......

lawmakers don't give a $hit......

If they gave a $hit they would have listened to voters long before this....

voters have no bearing on what lawmakers do or don't do.....

By the next elecion cycle here is what the American people will remember after the GOP/TEA Birthers took over the house.

1) They shifted focus from jobs and the economy to defending DOMA.

2) They almost pushed us into a government shutdown.

3) They almost pushed us into a credit downgrade.

4) They fought to kill medicare and medicaid

5) But they sure fought vehemently for those top 1% wealthy people.

All at the expense of the economy and the middle and working class.

President Obama and Nancy Pelosi make over $250K a year and even they know the sacrifices they have to make. When will the GOP/TEA Birthers pay down THEIR debt?

I oppose the GOP, but I have to disagree with you EX-GOP...neither party has good solutions to our budget problems...even though the Democrats are better than the Republicans in my opinion.

Funny thing is, it's going to cost them $billions, tank the stock market, send the dollar index under 50...and the only ones to be pleased will be teabaggers who are only concerned about their next six pack and NASCAR event.

President Donates ONE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS to the United Nations!!!
WTF is Wrong with him!!??
The U. S. State Department yesterday announced that the Obama Administration has agreed to contribute $4 billion to the United Nations Global Fund to fight AIDs, Tuberculosis, and Malaria from 2011 to 2013.

The $4 billion represents a 38% increase over the previous U.S. commitment to the fund.

actually I heard that if the debt were transferred to the corporations who incurred the debt it would be no problem at all for americans. unfortunately no one blinked in 96 when corporate personhood was announced in the nyt.

The communists complain that the rich are not taxed enough and it is unfair to the majority. No bigger lie was ever told by Obama and the present crop of unresponsible representatives in Washington. If such is true, then the wealthy and corporations which provide much of the employment would not be paying more than 80 per cent of the nation's revenue. Inflation, unemployment, rising taxation , and higher prices are all related in the economy and any nation that does not stop inflation just because it painful is essentially admiting their country is bankrupt. The Obama administration can not continue pretending that there will always be more money, and unlimited debt and spending can continue forever. To control the wild and crazy economy and have any chance at all to improve it will mean dramatic spending cuts, stop the printing of unlimited amounts of money, stop increasing the national debt incurred from foreign loans from China which just paying the interest on will be a burden forever, and stop the rediculous spending on every social welfare program some incompetant liberal politician can imagine. If it is not done now, the problems can only escalate and erode the freedoms and what good times all Americans may have left to them.

Damn Lance, after watching massive tax increases living in cities and still seeing the slums stay the same and even expanding, I can't figure it out. In every neighborhood that changed, it was the same....robberies, murders, assaults, rapes, muggings, well you get it. So lets hear it for a 40 ouncer, some crack cocaine and a 2 a.m. pick up basketball game. And as an added bonus....the plethora of unwed and single parents approaching 80%. The cuts are coming. And it won't be nice.

Screw the homeless. As a taxpayer I for one am tired of carrying the lazy shiftless masses. Let them starve. It would be cheaper in the long run to sweep the dead bodies off the street than it would be to carry these people for life. The takers in this country need to be cut off and fend for themselves like the rest of us.

While most,if not all of the liberal democrats will disagree with you,I agree 100% and so does the rest of the hard working taxpayers.It is way pass time to cut 80% of the vote"buying" entitlemt programs that the dems love so much.You would think that after 5 generations of lazy freeloaders living off the goverment teat the libs would wake up to the fact their handouts make things worst.Just saying.
