    No they want cuts in spending and a balanced budget. The show they are willing to compromise.

    Obama has shown no compromise.

    It is compromise because they include the ceiling raise that Obama wants

    She is standing on the principal the tea party ran on. Cut spending that does not include raising the debt ceiling.

    It is not compromise and it isn't just Obama who wants the debt ceiling raised.

    It's anyone with a retirement account or who has a vested interest in our economy not collapsing.

    Did you not see how the markets shot up yesterday when it appeared that a deal might be happening.

    If it doesn't happen, everything will tank.

    But go ahead and let everything tank in the name of not raising taxes on Paris Hilton.

    Right. Her position is nothing but pandering to the teabaggers in the hope that it will help her win the gop primaries

    Then you know nothing about what the house did last night which includes raising the debt ceiling.

    Obama does not want what the house passed because that means he would actually have to have a budget which he has not had for 2 years
