    There would be some I am sure, however, a majority is quite a stretch. Remember, in 2007, democrats voted 26 to 21 in the senate in favor of raising the debt ceiling, under Bush.

There is enough money brought in every month to avoid defaults.

    Both sides are playing election 2012 chicken.
    Sometimes you have to dig a hole to prevent something worse from happening. The potential for something worse in this case is large. Further, both sides agree that something needs to be done about the deficit and now is the time to do it. The disagreement is over how to do it, and neither side is working to find compromise, though Obama has offered just about everything republicans could ask for, all they have to do is have the courage to vote for it.

    Quick quiz. Who said this?

    “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.”

    Economists and political observers warned that if a deal was not struck before tonight, the financial markets could begin to tumble as investors lose confidence in the political and economic systems of the United States.

    “Right now, investors are scrambling to figure out how to protect themselves against a default,’’ said Michael Greenberger, a professor at the University of Maryland and former director of trading and markets of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. “Nothing can happen short of an invasion of the United States or a detonation of a nuclear weapon that would more destroy the well being of the American people.’’

    If the markets do react strongly - as soon as tonight in Asia and tomorrow morning in New York - some fear the sense of crisis could mirror what occurred three years ago when the demise of Lehman Bros. and the upheaval of the credit and mortgage markets forced Congress to consider a federal bailout of financial titans. The resulting Troubled Asset Relief Program was voted down by the House in September 2008, and the markets plunged. By the end of the week, Congress passed a version of the bill.

    Must be some GOP guy, but heck, according to the left, the GOP is always wrong and Obama (who my quote is from) never is, so I win.
