    Congress "nutters" risk global finance: UK minister

    Congress nutters risk global finance: UK minister | Reuters

    Right-wing "nutters" in the United States Congress holding up a deal to prevent a catastrophic debt default are a greater risk to the global financial system than problems in the euro zone, a British minister said Sunday.
    Saw it on TV yesterday and I swear I could hear David Cameron head explode. While Vince Cable is 100% correct and Cameron knows it, the timing of the comment is not the best to say the least...

    On top of that he downplayed the UK economy.... I suspect he will be out of a job soonish unless Nick Clegg protects him... after all Cable was the minister who said "he was at war with Murdoch" over the BSkyB purchase by Newscorp and after the Newscorp scandal his "star" has been rising considerably.

    Yes, it's those damned Right Wingers who are to blame, how dare they say the USA spends too ****ing much money, who do they think they are anyway?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    So a left-winger doesn't like the right-wing in Congress. Surprise!!

    There is plenty of blame to go around in this debacle and the Party politics be argued here and the BS from Obama and Congress is not good for the Nation or We the People.

    Liberals want more power and they get through spending and making people dependent on that spending, Republicans want to make the Liberals look bad more than they want to fix the damn problems created by everyone in the White House and both Houses of Congress since 2000.

    Politics is killing this Country from within and needs to stop before it's too late.
