    Boehner needs to suspend his spray tan and get a clue.

    Hey! Tea Party Republicans on this board! Where are you? Why aren't you defending this crap? Where is all the whining about reducing the debt and job creation now?

    The teaparty should just bounce Boehner and come totally out of the closet with their agenda...so amerca can swiftly reject them and send them packing....its going to happen eventually, its just going to be a slower process with the boehners whining who arent in charge of anything.

    CBO scores Boehner’s new bill: $22 billion in savings this year, $917 billion over 10 years Hot Air

    CBO Scoring of Boehner's new bill. The hyperventilating on this thread is laughable. It does not save enough.
    The tea party may not be in charge but wanting more than 90billion in cuts a year is admirable.

    By the by, where is the democrat plan? Or maybe Obama's?

    Obama should consider the prospect of using the 14th Amendment to get around the debt ceiling!

    It would be justified and possibly political malpractice if he does not use it. Congress has abdicated its constitutional responsibility before the drop dead date that will sink the economy.

    The republicans having been bought by a few ... and are holding the American economy and our senior citizens hostage. They are not conservatives ... they always voted for the debt ceiling to be raised for unfunded corporate wars, wind falls for big Pharma, tax breaks for the wealthiest ... they are using social security and medicare as hostage to give a blank check to corporate intersts of a few that do not benefit American interests.

    Hopefully Obama will use his presidential authority stop this train if an agreement is not reached.

    Last week I moved a significant portion of my 401k into cash ... will buy back when it at bottom if I think it will recover.

    I am just an upper middle class professional cerebral schmuck ... I am trying to maintain financial security while working 50+ hours providing professional healthcare and avoid the republican jihadist grandstanding that will tank us fast.

    What is the difference ... a terrorist hi jacking a plane hoping for 82 virgins or a terrorist holding an economy hostage hoping to be use the right hand of "God" to appease the corporations he legislates so a few become rich and the "dim lack of logic bible bangers voting base" he manipulates in order to support his agenda.

    The provision at the heart of the constitutional debate, Section 4 of the 14th Amendment, states: “The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payments of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.”
    Obama is a constitutional lawyer. He has acquiesced and reached across the aisle far too often at the expense of our country ... from corporate personhood to public option in the HCR to republican ethical violations.

    I am sure if you searched the internet, you can find one.. You may have to expand your search to something other than Fox News, Heritage foundation, Newsmax, and other rightwing smear outlets..

    I'll give you a hint.. It was put out by Harry Reid..

    I would agree with this, but there would be hell to pay and you know it.. Look at the crap he took for the mandate and it wasn't even his idea.. Republicans threw tantrum over the mandate, an idea that was originally republican..

    Reids plan abdicates the Senate from passing a budget for this year and next year, claims 1.7 trillion in savings from winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and using budgetary gimicks for most of the rest.

    So they abdicate their duty to pass a budget, claim savings that are going to occur anyway in the military, and use accounting procedures for the rest. Thats not a solution.

    Reids plan has just been getting attention the last 2 days.

    Oh yes, DM, I get my news sources from a news agregate, Drudge and it includes left and right wing sources and I read both sides. So take your idea that Im misinformed elsewhere.

    True DM ... yet if an agreement is not reached and congress abidcated their responsibilities he must be CIC and protect our country.

    Yes ... there will be hell to pay and possibly a lost election in 2012 ... yet it is his duty to protect from terrorists ... be it jihadists hoping for virgins or republicans playing a wicked economic game for special interests and corporate personhood.
