    Tour guides and store sales people arent in the homes and private businesses. Why evict them and order the closing of privately owned and operated businesses?

    To make it as uncomfortable as possible and to have the media tout how horrific this shut down is.
    I can see the bubble headed blonde with big hooters reporting now....Why it is so bad they are closing down statues, those damn Republicans and their shutdown stopping little Mary from her class trip.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Why? The government is not a household and should not be managed as such.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

Obama showed how much he cared about spending when he submitted a 3.77 trillion dollar budget.

    Debt is also much less of a problem when you are generating strong positive numbers which Obama isn't doing. Debt to GDP today is over 100% and never before in modern history has that been an issue. Something to think about.
    Of course it's time for them to adhere to their commitments. Raising the ceiling gives the Treasury the authority to generate money in the short term to pay for commitments they made, like contracts, salaries of government employees, etc. Consider the damage that will be done to the economy when private businesses with government contracts don't get the money that they budgeted for.

    The long term deficits don't seem to be a problem either party is willing to fix. They both talk a good game when they're in the opposition, but as soon as that changes they spend like sailors on shore leave.

    It's a poison pill because they knew damn well it wouldn't pass. I care about them passing a bill that might go somewhere instead of political grandstanding.

    The right only likes black or female, or basically any politician, if they're a Republican. When's the last time you heard a Con say anything nice about Nancy Pelosi? Does that mean they're sexist too, or is that partisan?

    But why does the President not make proposals to cut it down to size? That would be the job of the Executive one could think. If he does not do it, then Congress must.

    And to think that they are going to increase the ceiling again is rather disappointing. Almost you might think it criminal.
    Obama is getting what he wants, that European Socialist model with a dependent society managed by liberals. There is an old adage that you never bite the hand that feeds you and that would be liberalism if Obama has his way. We are close now.

    What is there nice to say about Nancy Pelosi, she holds her Botox well? It certainly isn't her economic stance

    That's fine, my point is that Democrats don't hate Palin because they're sexist anymore than Republicans hate Pelosi because they're sexist.

    It's just the reverse of the "Criticize Obama = racist" crap.

    You tell me then why the "hatred" for Palin? She had a resume that Obama didn't have. She actually ran something that Obama has never run. Racism never entered my mind when it came to Obama but that is the business person in me as I look at the resume and results. When you do that there is no justification of picking Obama over Palin even though they weren't running against each other.

    I have no problem with a Cruz/Palin Ticket, why do you especially after almost five years of Obama/Biden?

    If I have to tell you that Democrats usually don't vote for Republicans, you are beyond my help.
