    Re: Obama: Congress must — and will — raise debt limit

    It isn't really a big deal anyway as the debt ceiling was going to be increased no matter what because not increasing it would mean bad juju for the entire country. Look here as well.

    Palin wasn't happy either. She says the GOP needs to fight like a girl!


    Sarah Palin to GOP: 'Fight like a girl' - Andy Barr - POLITICO.com

    We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic," Palin said during a rally in front of the Wisconsin statehouse in Madison. "What we need from you, GOP, is to fight." Pointing to the national champion University of Wisconsin women's hockey team, Palin said the GOP could learn from its resolve and “needs to learn how to fight like a girl."

    Re: Obama: Congress must — and will — raise debt limit

    senator obama, admittedly before he transformed into the slasher hussein:

    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 U.S. Government can’t 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.

    No. Cranking out a bill that has no chance of going anywhere is an empty gesture unless it's to make a point you've been making consistently or draw attention to what has consistently been your pet issue.

    That makes it an empty gesture for roughly 99% of the membership of both Houses.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Some GOP legislators contend U.S. not at risk for default if debt ceiling not raised | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment
    Mulvaney calls Geithner’s rhetoric partisan and inaccurate because the federal government’s obligations will continue to be paid even if Congress votes against raising the debt ceiling.
    “The reason you are hearing there will be an automatic default is that Treasury does not as a checkbook function have the ability to prioritize,” Mulvaney said. “What they are saying is, ‘Whenever a check comes in we’ll pay it until we don’t have any money left.’
    “Let’s give them the ability to prioritize and prioritize for them and say, ‘Let’s pay the debt first.’ And if you do that, you can put off this default for many, many months, and this spectre of an immediately impending default goes away.”
    Toomey has introduced legislation in the Senate that would do just that.

    That's all. They're afraid that yet again riders will be attached to a bill that Obama must sign that would limit the money they can steal from your grandchildren.
    Wait. You think Obama and the democrats are the reason for the need to raise the ceiling debt?

    Iraq

    Afghanistan

    Medicare Advantage

    None of which were funded.

    Tax cuts for the rich

    Extensions of tax cuts for the rich or we'll stop you from getting a budget through

    Increased tax cuts for the corporations

    How soon we forget who put us in this economic downward spin. Bush got so eager to get every American's taxes for retirement turned over to his buddies on wall street, he collapsed this economy down the tubes.
    Alex Carey:

    ... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.
