    No one would accept their philosophy or political goals if they didn't lie about it.

    interest is about 250 billion a year at the current rate.

    what would happen if interest on the debt rises to 5, 6%

    whats 6% on 17 trillion?.......about 1 trillion in interest, i wonder where they money will come from if rates go up?

    i am sure when janet yellen gets her job, she will do her best to keep interest rates low.......

    From the looks of it they have immigration next on the list to deal with. Should be fun watching establishment republicans do their thing and stand by the democrats in their own demise. Idiots.

    This isn't over until the Senate and the House vote on the same bill and it's signed by the President. None of these three things have happened yet. I'll vote on this poll when congress votes.

    Nobody has lost. Nobody has won.
