    When did conservatives start objecting to raising the debt ceiling? Come to think of it, since when have conservatives objected to spending? They have done more than their fair share.

    Are you so dense that you can't understand the FACT that Obama offered cuts in return for minor revenue increases? I mean, it's only in every ****ing newspaper in America.

    Since when? Since Obama became president.

    I found one that was no accomplishment at all, so your entire list is crap.

    So the economic brainiacs at the White House created a program that cost taxpayers $3 billion - or $24,000 per car sold - and in doing so, raised the prices of used vehicles close to $2000 on average for the middle class. Absolute brilliance.

    Nice to see conservatives acting, well, conservative, isn't it?

    And Dems haven't? At least the GOP is trying to hold the line now, and liberals act like it's the end of the ****ing world. Seriously Redress, are you concerned about spending? I'm genuinely curious.

    Yeah that's what I thought. You find one problem out of 42 and you dismiss the whole list. You're not even worth the time it took to type this post. How about all of those tax cuts? DO you hate tax cuts now? Never mind. You're a clueless partisan hack. Lay down and go to sleep. It's the best thing you could do for yourself.

    Yes I am concerned about spending. However, playing games like this with something that can have large negative impact on many Americans is not the way to do it, and pointing out that we would not have had to do this if conservatives actually cared about the debt when republicans are president is a perfectly valid point to make.

    There is a right way to do things and a wrong way to do things. This is the wrong way.

    You're concerned about spending? Then you must be pretty happy with the spending cuts that Obama offered. You know, the ones that the GOP walked away from.

    The only people that pay tax on social security are those with significant other income.

Privatizing, restructuring, cutting benefits or pushing out the retirement age, OTH, affects those for whom SS is part of the safety. Sorry, your's is a poor rebuttal to my original assertion: the Repubicans do seek to radically reform and scale back social security.

    So? For once someone objects to raising taxes. Good for them.

    Because he's spent more in a shorter time than any other president. Duh. Maybe you shouldn't be so quick to call others dense, eh?
