    Sen. Mitch McConnell: Itís Time to Have a Real Debate

    Sen. Mitch McConnell: It

    Really? You have less than two weeks to deal with a default, and NOW you want to have a real debate? God, what a moron.

    ďIt had been my fervent hope that the President could be persuaded to view the upcoming debt limit vote as an opportunity to change direction, to cut spending and debt, and to preserve entitlement programs.

    ďBut those hopes evaporated when the President began to insist in recent weeks that he would only consider spending cuts later if Republicans agreed now to one of the biggest tax hikes in history. Republicans refused to be drawn into this legislative trap.

    ďAnd when Democrats proposed a smaller plan that they claimed, without any details, amounted to more than a trillion dollars in cuts, well, we refused to go along again ó because we knew that it didnít.

    ďWe refused to pretend that a bad deal was a good one.

    I agree it is way past time for debate. I got an idea. Lets use Pelosi's stance of, "“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.”. to solve the debt ceiling issue. If was good enough for health care, should be good enough for the debt. right.

    That's my hope. They don't want to see the market shake.

    Exactly BB! ... and at the expense of our senior citizens. Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl voted each and every time to raise the debt ceiling during the Bush presidency with no limits or debate.

    Yes ... we always need a debate yet these four are more about grandstanding and theatrics.

    There were no demands from these four legislators that debt increases come accompanied by spending cuts the collective 19 times they voted yes during the Bush years. In fact , when Bush was in office, the current Republican leaders viewed increasing the debt limit as absolutely essential to keeping America’s economy running. They even voted for corporate tax cuts for the wealthiest as they voted to raise the debt ceiling.

    They are frauds ... now suddenly with Obama in office they are playing a political game.

    If Obama budges on SS or medicare for these poseurs ... he gets an F.

    This lightheartedness in the light of one of the most important issues in America's history won't be forgotten. These clowns will pay the price for their crimes against the nation and the American people one day. Mark my words.
