    Another thing you are wrong about. You are really rackin' them up!

    But, let me just expose your deception here. This is a very common left wing tool, making misleading statements. You bring up this trivial event as if it is a staple of the Republican Party, hoping no one will challenge you on it (got that wrong too). Of course, it has no support among republicans. It was nearly two decades ago and had no chance of going anywhere.

    And you really have no point to make with it, do you? Are you trying to imply that republicans actually agree with obamacare because of some lame idea 20 years ago? Really? If not what is your point? Let's hear it. I think obamacare got about zero republican votes. So, that trivial item from 20 years ago doesn't seem to be relevant at all, but do explain your point.

    Democrats alive just 50 years ago would now be turning in their graves at the thought of a Black man in the White House. No need to go back to the Civil War and earlier.

I don't care how long it takes, keep the freeze, spending 3.7 trillion until the budget is balanced, until all expenditures, spending is less than all revenue/income/money coming in. Keep the freeze in place until there is a 200 billion surplus which must be maintained every year hence and start paying down the debt.

    Interest rate can't stay this low. As it is we are paying 420 billion in interest alone and that is at roughly 2%. what happens if interest rates rise to there normal level, you know how much the interest payment would be on 17 trillion at the historical average rate of 6%. ONE TRILLION dollars a year.

    We are living in a fools paradise if we or anyone, anybody thinks interest rates will remain between 1 and 2 percent.

    This President has made some many ignorant statements that are either ignored or excuses made for them. I know if a Republican had made those statements they wouldn't be ignored. Wonder what it is about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty? Must be that Obama is indeed transforming this country into the big govt. European socialist model that supporters want?

    The Quote of the Decade:

    The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

    ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

    J.F.Revel wrote a great book on this called "The Totalitarian Temptation", and because it was written during the Cold War it dealt mainly with the left supporting totalitarianism and the psychology behind it.

    He suggests early on that, "Certain personalities bloom only when exercising absolute power. Some know they are incapable of reaching the top, or indeed any position of influence, except where zeal in the service of tyranny can substitute for talent."

    We have seen that 'zeal' exercised by smaller people everywhere.

    Is he that stupid, or are the people he is addressing that stupid?

    The Quote of the Decade:
    That is such complete BS. The debt ceiling has always been used as a tool by the minority to embarrass the majority. Obama *COULD* have filibustered the debt ceiling increase. The GOP certainly didn't have enough to raise it. Look at every vote for the debt ceiling in the past, the majority always comes from the MAJORITY party, REGARDLESS of who the party is.
    House-Debt-Limit-Votes-100-1024x696.jpg

    But now we have proudly ignorant tea partiers in the majority. They proudly admit their ignorance of global economics. But it doesn't matter; they learned enough raising a family. Of course!!! All you need to know about being a CFO you can learn by paying an electric bill.

    So now the minority party, for the first time in US history is willing to carry 95% of the debt ceiling vote. And even this would be enough if the bill was allowed to go to the floor.

    The current Republican party may be as big of a threat to the US as Russia was during the cold war.
