    I'm imagining you're some bitter old man, clueless and partisan to the core. That's pretty much it. Go sit and spin somewhere. That's about all you're worth.

    Why should Tea Party cater to the usual political compromises that got us into this position in the first place? The Republicans have fought any thought of reasonable tax increases and the Democrats have fought any reasonable spending cuts over many years. And their answer is to run the government is to follow along the same path? The time for borrowing more money 'til next time is over.

    They have previously lied twice on this very same subject and even with the same dollar "compromise."

    While I told Sangha that I would rather be dumb that dishonest, I would rather be smart and honest. The GOP should not back down to the lies of the Dems.
    The GOP is committing suicide if it thinks that not raising the debt ceiling is going to reflect poorly on the Dems, instead of them! Most people are aware that the ball is in their court, and they will be held responsible if the country goes into crisis because of their foolishness.

    The problem is that most tea party conservatives don't understand what will happen to the country if the debt ceiling is not raised. They are under the impression that it is good for the country - when the extreme opposite is true. Not raising the ceiling is not going to lower the deficit or the debt - it will keep the military from receiving their pay, it will keep many that depend on their SS checks from getting paid. Does the GOP want to take credit for that? Does the Tea Party?

    I have posted several times about the lies of the 80s and 90s where a Republican President agreed to a tax increase in exchange for what the Democrats agreed to which was $3 of expenditure cuts for each $1 of tax increase. The taxes increased and the expenditures were never cut as agreed to.

    The Republicans have passed more than one debt ceiling bill in the House and the Dems, as usual, are obstructionist and won't support the bills. That puts the ball squarely in the Dems court and they cannot even come up with a program. The only real program the President has offered was voted down 0-97 in the Senate.

    Good grief, I thought you were talking about the Democrats in Congress now.

    Who cares what was done years ago - we're talking about now, and if the Reps don't agree on raising the debt ceiling, we're all in trouble.

    The Republicans have passed more than one debt ceiling bill in the House and the Dems, as usual, are obstructionist and won't support the bills.
    Excuse me, the Republicans won't accept anything that even suggests at raising taxes on the wealthy, who can afford it, but insist in cutting benefits from the middle class and below, who can least afford it. What ingnoramus that is not wealthy supports that action? Why would Democrats go against what the majority of Americans want, and that is to leave Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid alone?



    That puts the ball squarely in the Dems court and they cannot even come up with a program. The only real program the President has offered was voted down 0-97 in the Senate.
    The President's bill, as well as the Democrat's bill is not accepted by the Reps because they suggest ending the tax cuts for the wealthy, and the Reps are afraid of Nordquist. I don't know what Nordquist has done to get them all in line with his wishes, but talk about Sheeple.
