Members of Congress threatening to vote against raising the debt ceiling are behaving like children. First of all, their sudden concern for the deficit would be a lot more believable if they didn't just vote for a massive tax cut less than two weeks ago. Sure, some people want low taxes/spending and others want high taxes/spending. I understand that. But let's not pretend like the people who voted for a tax cut before any spending cuts have passed - when we already have a massive deficit - are the slightest bit concerned about it. They're just concerned about making Obama look bad.
Fortunately, John Boehner seems to be acting like a responsible adult. Enough Republicans will vote to raise the debt ceiling that it will pass.

I can't. This is important.

So, at a time when we have threats to our own soil, and citizenery, and fighting two wars, plus going down in flames due to the insane increasing of budgets of not only this administration, but the previous one as well, and the one before that, your only answer is that we must cut defense first? And you wonder why it is that people call suggestions like this precursers of liberals wanting to destroy this country?
Good God man.....Were'nt you telling us a mere 24 months ago that you were a conservative?

This country is in need of a major surgical procedure we can ironically call "cuts." You can put them off for a little while, but you have to do the surgery or we will die as a nation. I'd rather the surgery sooner rather than later, but it seems that according to the left, it's "acting like an adult" to continue to put off this surgery. Well if that's the case, i'm proud to be childish.
