    If the debt ceiling is not raised...

    ...there are two choices:

    1: Cut spending to match revenue and default on the debt
    2: Cut spending to match revenue and pay the debt service from those revenues

    Which do you choose?

    Re: If the debt ceiling is not raised...

    First we need to find a way to the dumb-ass Obama to take responsibly for his mistakes and then make sure he is not allowed to make any more but not passing anything he is going to be lying about until he's replaced.

    Since Obama took office Federal revenue is up 20% and Obama's spending is up 60% and Bush didn't waste all the money. Obama did, and on 100% failed programs.

    We have to cut spending and start with the White House. The Obama's as I keep saying are spending like welfare recipients who won the Lotto.

    Then go after and kill all port unless it creates private sector jobs, reduce regulations Federal and State that drive business either off shore or out of State.

    Leave the rich along because they create jobs, and don't dive me the Liberal BS about they and Big business are making record profit but are not hiring.

    There is no reason to hire when there is little consumer demand and fear of Obama's next blunder makes tomorrow's economy uncertain.

    I could fill a book with better ideas than Obama has had, and than I have heard from any GOP candidate either.

    Wow.. I have never seen a post full of such lies and misinformation.. Well.. Except the last time I read a post written b y a conservative..

    So the rich create jobs?? Really?? Are you sure?? Because the last I checked the unemployment rate sky rocketed after we gave the rich tax cuts.. So where are these jobs you speak of?? Are we not at around 9% unemployment?? We have had the tax cuts for almost 10 years now.. Where are the jobs.. With an investment of 3.2 trillion over 10 years.. We should have a lower unemployment rate shouldn't we??

    Federal revenue up 20%??? Really?? Link it or your full of it..

    What mistakes has Obama made and what does he need to take responsibility for??

    Welfare recipients won the lotto?? All live so far below the poverty level it is sickening.. Just like your ignorance.. How about an extra 320 billion a year?? Let the damn tax cuts for rich expire.. Those tax cuts are getting us nothing in return.. You would be better off giving that 320 billion to the poor.. At least they will dump it back into the economy instead of just letting sit in the bank with their other millions.. There is some demand for you.. Where are the jobs??

    There is no consumer demand moron because much of the middle class has become poor or worse.. Where are the jobs?? You can't take mony from the poor and give it to the rich and expect the poor to have money to buy stuff.. Cut the damn tax cuts..

    Now why don't you learn to accept responsibility for supporting a party that has done nothing to create jobs.. You want to know what is wrong with the economy?? Go look in the mirror..

    Re: If the debt ceiling is not raised...

    Since letting the tax cuts expire wasn't on the list.. I can see that you really don't care about the economy.. It is hard to fix it when you are unwilling to address one of the reasons we are where we are now.. Bush's main reason for the tax cut was the budget surplus he had when he took office.. Instead of use it to pay off the debt, or use it to help pay for the war after 9/11, he gave it to the rich to do nothing with it.. Now there is brains at work..

    Also.. Always remember.. The deficit we have now?? Bush created..

    There can be no fixing of the economy until two things happen.. The rich pay their share and you all help look for ways to get people working again.. Until that time.. Only republicans are to blame..

    I dare say, sell Hawaii and keep Alaska and drill drill drill in Alaska and sell that for a profit.

    Re: If the debt ceiling is not raised...

    Why do you lean "undisclosed"? With those comments you coulld be Bertha Lewis>

    1. Clinton's budget surplus was no where near enough to pay off the debt under his adm. There was a surplus of $1.9 billion in fiscal 1999 and $86.4 billion in fiscal 2000.
    The debt increased under Clinton from 3.6 trillion in 91 to 5.6 trillion in 2000. Know your facts, not your bumper sticker
    2. How much should the rich pay? What is fair in your wonderland?

    Re: If the debt ceiling is not raised...

    What it all boils down to is either A) I am looting if our government crumbles in the long run so I give you all fair warning if you are within 100 miles radius of me to be packing or B) The debt ceiling will get raised. Why is it that these Republicans have no damn problem raising it when another Republican is in office but a Democrat is there and they all get sand in their vaginas over it? Because it's a game to them. A game that will end in the democrats bowing to their demands, Americans getting more ****ed over, and the debt ceiling getting raised.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
