    and don't think for a moment that the American people is gonna forget the games the GOP has played this week.

    this is gonna bite the GOP in the ass and Obama will be re-elected.

    Obama wanted a $4 trillion plan that cut spending and raised revenue and the GOP said "NO". The American people will remember.

    The first time America has lost its AAA credit rating, and another first for the Obama administration. Keep working on that legacy.

    You forgot to mention all Republicans are the devil spawn from Satan's loins, suck the blood of innocent babies, murder little old ladies and worship everything evil and are responsible for all bad things since time began.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    True - eventhough this has been a long time coming.

    which begs the question: why now the downgrade - all the many issues we've gone through and it's the yaer 2011 when it happens?

    Nope - doesn't wokr that way. Two parties insist on dominating together - they both take blame for their issues.

    It is a joint issue - it has always been a joint issue. the partisan hackery only serves to slow the acceptance of this.

    Other than the last two years can you point to a time when the deficit will be as high as the upcoming 2011-2012. To say that we will not spend money on anything when spending will be at record highs is just silly.

    To talk about teachers, police and firefighters during a thread on the Federal government's spending shows a lack of knowledge that is appalling. Those folks you mention get paid by and are the responsibility of state and local governments.
