    As I see it, he knew the deadline was coming up, after which he would need new approval. The House told him he could have his money, if he accepted their conditions. He didn't like the conditions and let the date line laps. By doing that he necessitated the payments stop. That sounds as though he willfully bluffed, playing with the people's well being and the people lost.

    Why? You think the President need not have the House approve his budget?

    The President did submit a budget request, 3.77 trillion dollars claiming it would lower the deficit and improve economic conditions. It didn't get ONE Democrat or Republican Vote.

    Passing a bill which estbalishes funding to something you dont like sounds entirely related. The House controls the money. People elected Republicans to control the money.

    And? Maybe they didn't like it. And if you need their okay? Well you do what it takes to get it or lose. That is the way checks and balances work.

    The point being that Obama has no interest in reducing the deficit or the debt but will take credit for everything if it is good and pass on blame if it is bad. Obamabots ignore that reality.

    The bills were already approved by congress the debt ceiling is to pay those bills nothing else it never has been. This is not anything new. This is just a Republican ploy to relitigate stuff. By taking American credit hostage and throwing a hissy fit. The bills were passed now it time to pay them. It has been that way for a long time.

    Republicans fall quiet in face of Obama deficit success - Video on NBCNews.com

    Any more lies you want to spew or do I need to show you other sources which you will never try to prove wrong other than your simple words.
