    Okay. What would be wrong with that?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    It sort of takes the urgency to reach a solution out of the equation...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Okay, so instead of tying the President's hands, maybe they force the issue on themselves -- require that the matter be settled within X days of the debt ceiling being reached, or they stay in continuous session without pay until they get'er done. If they want a hard deadline so badly, all they have to do is impose it on themselves.

    You seem to forget that all parties must agree to any deal...

    I understand that. I'm just saying that if the Republicans really want a hard deadline, they impose it on themselves for the future in this debt ceiling bill. The Senate will most definitely sign off on it with a chuckle, and the President too. They will then have proven that they're serious about wanting a hard deadline, and they will have done it without crapping in someone else's corn flakes.

    It's not a party issue; it's a policy issue...

    If they weren't bringing it up at the 11th hour, I'd agree with you.

    Well, the other party wasn't too interested in any negotiation until now. Was it?

    They control half the legislative process. They could've made discussing these things a condition of ANY business that got tackled in the past 10 months, but instead they do it now, when failure means a smoking crater where our nation's credibility used to be? Really?

    We have a president who can't be trusted to manage our money wisely. His hands need to be tied.
