I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
^^^ that was done to stop the default in May apdst. You and the prof really have trouble reading your own links. Hundreds of economists along with former treasury secretaries from both democratic and republican administrations have said allowing the debt to default would be catastrophic. Unless you are a noble prize winning economist, let's stop the BS, and realize the fact that Republicans need to start making concessions since the President is giving up so much.
Boehner may be getting over his recto-cranial inversion.
Boehner: 'Maybe 50-50' Chance of Imminent Debt Deal - Billy House - Politics - The Atlantic
Here is my take .. the debt ceiling is in no danger of not being raised .. Lets remember that republicans have no power to get anything “DONE” then can only stop things from getting done .. and they are using that power .. to get everything they can … and from my point of view .. they are doing so rather effectively ..
As to what Obama is giving up .. that is just a silly joke .. the budget for 2008 was 2.9 trillion .. budget for 2011 is 3.7 trillion .. or 800 billion in increased spending .. he is offering to cut 400 billion a year . . and I haven't seen anything that is verified in those cuts .. but even if they are honest cuts .. he has still increased spending by 400 billion in his 2 years .. tp say that he is giving up anything is just an outright lie .
