I agree the tea bagger doesn't want to tax the rich they themselves. I always said if the do nothing but BS highly paid elite say pay 40 million tax off their 50 million yearly loot they still have cool 10 million a year and that's a lot more than 10 workers get paid busting their ass working 48 to 56 hrs a week 50 weeks a year. Life is not fair but you appeasing idiots would never understand. It's time to start paying off the debts.

What a bunch of idiots Liberal Leftists are. The top 3% of income earners in America pay more than 50% of all taxes. The real problem is the underground economy people, who lie, cheat, steal and refuse to be part of a functioning economy. Their drugs and depravity only make the picture more troubling. The Commies in office are trying to attack that with their Obamacare, getting everyone on the IRS roles, but this is actually more threatening to human freedom and liberty, than the disease.

The Christian thing to do is try to direct these freeloading, drugged scum to become responsible citizens by informing them of how things work in a non-tyrannical society to the uplifting and benefit of all.

Evidently, the Emperor Obama is naked and proved to be the most dysfunctional president in US history who pushes liberal agenda of destruction of America and its constitution. John Boehner is right to demand negotiations between the House and Obama since the House of Representatives represent the American people and is not rubber stamp of any dictator in the White House who play children games of who will blink first. The Obama regime spent 7 trillion dollars above the taxes fees and other revenues that the government collected during the Obama ruling of the White House years since 2009 which is more than all US presidents combine. Yet, the corrupt Obama regime pushed down the American people to its worst economic condition and national security in decades as Obama is pushing the Obama healthcare for 30 millions of illegal invaders from all the over the world and giving food stamps to more than 50 million American that refuse to work or pay taxes for lifetime “because it is fair”. Boehner is the House Speaker and he is responsible of the American people to prevent from Obama to spread our tax money and printed money by the Fed chief Bernanke to the sick and poor of the world including financing Mozlem Brother Regimes and terrorist organizations which is against the US Constitution. With more than 17 trillion dollars debt of the Obama regime which cannot e paid in hundred years by our children and grandchildren, it is immoral for any US Congress led by the GOP to be rubber stamp of corrupt anti-American socialistic and Mozlem brother sympathizer regime of Obama that seek new world order on the ruins of America that we love.

Good for John Boehner standing up to the little tyrant. This country will be damaged beyond repair if Obama is allowed to move forward with his agenda.

Wrong. There is plenty of taxpayer money left to take. Working people are no where near the 50% tax bracket. The only ones who think that we are taxed too much are the TEA people.

Raising the debt ceiling, raises the COST associated with borrowing money.

Increasing the debt ceiling every time GUARANTEES that eventually the government will OWE AS MUCH IN INTEREST as it needs to run the government.

At that point, borrowing MORE MONEY will not amount to actually HAVING the money to use. At some point ALL the borrowed money will go to PAY THE INTEREST on the money.
