    Shut it down... continually.. until people realize that having it shut down is not a good thing AND that, in and of itself, is a reason to decrease the power that the branch holds.

    Thinking we can just continue the spending we are doing now is more idiotic.

    While I won't say he's on the brink of irrelevancy I do think Cruz needs to sit this one out. There's a fine line between standing on principle and being a pest. The jackals who control both parties are gonna do as they please. Just have to wait til Nov to see if the cavalry will arrive...Best to bunker down, take cover, and pick battles that you know you'll win...

    Heh, love it when the nut cases on the left hates someone on the right, it means they're representing the people who voted for them.

    Works both ways, when the nut cases on the right complain about Pelosi, Reid, and Obama than I guess according to you it means THEY are representing the people that voted for them.

    Paying your bills with debt is not paying your bills when they come due. That's just kicking it down the road.

    At some point, we will be deadbeats. This cannot go on forever.

    Sound advice.
    Aside from giving federal employees a two week paid vacation, what did the last debt ceiling fight accomplish?
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
