    the deal : 1 trillion dollar cut now (over ten years); debate continues until November; everything on the table at that point. automatic cuts if congress does not act.

    There is not a trillion dollars in cuts. The debt will rise over the next ten years unless real cuts actually happen.

    Yes, it's a side show. It should be a routine vote, but the same repubs who have voted to raise the debt ceiling umpteen times in the past, have suddenly "found religion" on the issue and have created an artificial crisis.

    How many of the freshman Congressmen have voted for raising the debt ceiling? Don't you recall the 2010 election?

    How many of those freshman congress critters protested the other umpteen times we've raised the debt ceiling?

    They weren't born yesterday, and neither were we

    Don't know about the current freshmen, but here's a quote from one in 2006:

    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.
    Senator Barack Obama, March 20, 2006 on the Senate floor.

    1) I don't see anything in that statement that suggests he was ideologically opposed to raising the debt ceiling. The teabaggers claim their opposition to doing so is based on ideology.

    2) I don't care what Obama says, and I don't believe what Obama says

    3) You don't believe him either, but you'll quote him as if you do whenever it's convenient for you to do so

    I'll take the advice of the owners of a successful business that employs 70,000 people, 50,000 of them in the U.S. over a left-wing academian who's never signed the front of a paycheck in his life any day of the week.
