    Obama Bypassing Congress on Debt Limit is 'Crazy Talk'

    Obama Bypassing Congress on Debt Limit is 'Crazy Talk'



    Sen. John Cornyn warned President Obama on Sunday to not even consider interpreting the Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment to bypass Congress and raise the debt limit without its approval.
    "That's crazy talk. It's not acceptable for Congress and the president not to do their job and to say somehow the president has the authority then to basically do this by himself," Cornyn, R-Texas, a former judge on the Texas Supreme Court, told "Fox News Sunday."
    I can’t believe people are even considering this as an option. Things are getting really scary around here. Maybe Glenn Beck was right about the left.

    Crazy talk?? Yes, it is. BUT-- we had cap and trade go to the EPA, the Dream Act, basically, go to ICE and HLS.......... nothing he does would surprise me. Nothing.
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    Glenn Beck IS right. I do what he says-- never believe him, do my own homework. He does not lie.

    Beck lies, he also manipulates the truth. I would take the things he says very lightly.

    LOL!! I would, too, if I didn't have news links backing up most of what he says. He is OFTEN right.

    With Democrat Senators, the Treasury Secretary and the White House mulling over yet another unprecedented executive branch end run around the legislative branch and contortion of the law, I have to believe Glenn Beck does less manipulation of the truth than Obama and his cronies do.

    This shouldn’t even be a partisan issue. This is an absolute affront to the Constitution and the 14th Amendment.

    Re: Obama Bypassing Congress on Debt Limit is 'Crazy Talk'

    “The validity of the public debt of the United States … shall not be questioned.” — The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

    What's ‘crazy talk’ is Republicans suggesting that the U.S. defaulting on its obligations isn't a ‘big deal.’

    If President Obama does his duty, ignores the unconstitutional debt ceiling and continues to meet our past obligations per the Constitutional requirement, the Republican-controlled U.S. House will most assuredly impeach him. But, of course, they were looking for an excuse for that all along.

    Try reading Article 1, sections 8 and 9. You know, I almost hope he does try this little shenanigan because he will be impeached by Democrats as well as Republicans.

    Congress authorized the spending that incurring the obligations. To say now that they won't meet those obligations is the real crime.

    If Obama can do it, he should.

    The republicans are playing games with the countries economic health for their own political purposes, it does not serve the nation.
