    Yes, and i would think it should be obvious that anything we can do to get our businesses growing and prospering would be a very good thing!

    Not a blank check, more of a gift Credit Card.

    Whatever you wanna call it. I know you guys on the right have personalized the debt problem as Barack Obama to ridiculousness....but it's only authorization for the Treasury to issue debt to pay the bills, not Barack and Michele buying a new house.

    You don't need to be on the right to understand that the spending this country is doing is out of control.

    I am not on the right.

    I am actually blaming both parties for what is going on.

    Thanks for the gross generalization.

    Well you did parrot right wing rhetoric. That Obama is just cashing the check, he wants the debt ceiling raised and Congress is just doing him a favor.

    I am sure that is the same attitude you will have when I defend gay rights.

    Not wanting more spending does not equate to parroting.

    The parroting of the right wing noise machine has nothing to do with asking for a balanced budget or less spending. It has to do with how your acting like raising the debt ceiling is a gift to Obama.

    Actually, I didn't act like it was a gift to obama. I joked that the blank check analogy was incorrect and that it was more of a gift credit card (as in a credit card you get as a gift with a fixed monetary amount you can spend on it). Next.
