    You still have not taken the time to look up what the debt ceiling or Marxism is, have you? This helps explain your positions!

    Of course we won't. Everyone knows that when your bills exceed your savings, you can still pay them all in full!!

    Memo to file: suggest to DP that they offer a basic political knowledge test to its prospective new members.

    OK if the government should run it's business like I run mine, are they arguing I should stoppaying my bills? And it will get better for me if I do? In fact more people will want to loan me money? Damn, I've been doing it wrong all these years.

    But let me ask, are you suggesting democrats are not responsible? I would argue that cutting spending and rasiing taxes is the responsible thing to do.

    Who said he was my news source? Your leaps say a lot about you I'm afraid.

    Yes, of course. Raising the debt ceiling simply gives the government the authority to borrow money to pay bills it has already incurred. If the government can't raise the money to pay the bills it's already incurred, it cannot pay those bills: 1 + 1 =2.

    Americans ‘Disgusted’ as Politicians Fail to Compromise on Debt

    "The July CNN poll found that 51 percent of those surveyed would blame Republicans if the debt ceiling weren’t raised, compared with 30 percent who would blame Obama."
