What?

The budget agreement HE NEGOTIATED calls for another $ SIX TRILLION in deficit spending over the next 10 years.

And now he wants to fight over raising the debt ceiling to cover the very debt HE ORCHESTRATED?

PUHSSSSSSSSSSSSST Future congresses are not obligated to adhere to what previous congresses did. There is no guarantee from the left or right that will change anything but what happens this year. PERIOD....as our president likes to say.

Obammy's main goal is to Bankrupt America. When he finally leaves office the debt will be 20-25 trillion. Welfare recipients will be wealthy from all the raises they get and most of the rich will have to leave the Country because Obammy wants them to support all of America. The mexicans will be sneaking in to Mexico.

flubs took care of bankrupting America. Freedomworks is bankrupt, too. Funny how the conservatives-in-name-only can't handle money.

I told my bank that I was planning to spend $6000 more than I make next year. They had no problem with that. So, I said I needed them to raise my credit limit. All do a sudden, they had a problem. Imagine them wanting me to meet certain conditions to spend their money!

The difference being in your little analogy Ryan would be the banker as well as the client.

In other words, you don't get a vote on whether to raise your credit limit you want to breach, but Ryan DOES get a vote.

Good point, but I'm sure you got my meaning anyway.

I'm not sure what your point was.

My point was it just shows Ryan's hypocrisy and naked political ambition.

He wants credit for crafting a bipartisan budget agreement which ovoid another shutdown for 2 years, but he also wants to throw a bone to the Teabaggers he just pissed off by threatening default again.

My pont was that it is one thing to decide to spend more than is taken in but this decision has consequences. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

I'm not surprised that a career politician has political ambitions. I certainly don't see how political ambition in a career politician is a sign of hypocrisy. In the eye of the beholder I guess.

Speaking of which, haven't you noticed that every time we see Ryan talking about this budget agreement, we also see Patty Ryan nodding her head? Seems to me that Ryan is sharing credit, or attempting to.

If this cancerous little pig tries to f--k with the debt ceiling again, he and his henchmen should be arrested, taken out of the House chamber, and sent to Gitmo as terrorists seeking the destruction of the U.S.

Damned filth.

Clue for the clueless: nations aren't individuals, and macroeconomics isn't microeconomics. The same rules don't apply.

Most banks would HAPPILY raise your credit limit, incidentally. Imagine you knowing WTF you're talking about.
