    i am sure when janet yellen gets her job, she will do her best to keep interest rates low.......
    You realize default would be the surest way to raise the interest rate? And yes, interest payments are a part of the budget.

    Well, no. Interest payments are not why we have a deficit.

    Re: So Who Won?

    When victory means that we still have a government and an economy nobody really won anything. There has been a lot of damage done to individual Americans in big business as well as working people. 25 Billion dollars damage to the GDP.
    Politically the Democratic party has made great gains in that republicons are polling at an all time low (23%) and will likely lose the house next time around.
    The GOP has been hoodwinked by a flim-flam con man Raphael Cruz. They need to re-examine who they followed and why. Raphael Cruz is a junior senator with a whopping nine months in Washington under his belt and he effectively became speaker of the house for a few weeks.
    He was born in Canada to a Cuban father who fought with Fidel Castro during the Cuban revolution. I'm not so sure that his goal isn't to bring down the United States of America as a world power.
    It is highly unlikely that the GOP in the house will try a damaging stunt like this any time soon, so we have that going for us as well.
    No one won ...some lost more than others... that's all that can be said.

    You are clearly incompetent at judging humor, since you thought that obvious joke was the "race card".
