    Re: Obama aide: Debt limit fight could be "catastrophic"

    If November was about curbing federal spending and reducing the national debt, then defaulting on our obligations is an odd way of doing it. All that achieves at best is increasing the cost of borrowing henceforward creating more indebtedness not less. Want to curb federal spending and reduce the national debt? Use the federal budget.

    Please prove that Obama's plan is to kill old people.

    Wow. You really need to get out more and talk to young people who are politically inclined. We are not "dumb beasts" and I find it insulting that you'd call them that.

    My generation has consumed most of your generation's economic opportunities by borrowing. As a result, your generation will enjoy a lower average standard of living than my generation. If I were a member of your generation I would be at the barricades fighting back. Instead, your generation continues to dream while it finances my generation's entitlements. Thanks for the beer and pizza.

    We have a couple more months before that has to happen. Without a plan to cut spending which by the way is coming, approving an increase in the debt ceiling now is just as worthless as all other previous increases. What exactly did the Democrat controlled Congress do to cut spending the last 4 years?

    Well, you could take his own words when he speaks of giving grandma a pill for pain rather than that expensive other treatment, or you could view any number of his Czar's statements on the matter, including, but not limited to Dr. Emmanuel's book on the matter.

    Plan, maybe not in hard fast terms, but as an unwritten matter, absolutely.

    Well, as the saying goes....'Some men are wise, some men are otherwise.'

    Me? I haven't seen you tap, tap, tap back into the NYC snow thread since articles were posted that makes your backing look foolish. In any case....




    Obama in his own words....Next!

    Obama isn't going to kill grandma. Obama is going to persuade grandma that it's her duty to her grandchildren for her to go when it's time.
