Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage Poll: Voters Don't Want Debt Ceiling Hike During his press conference addressing the debt ceiling debate Obama said the American public isnt paying attention to the ins and outs of this debate; essentially saying that the reason so many Americans dont support allowing the government to raise the current debt limit from the $14 trillion, where it currently stands, is because they are ignorant. That was his response when asked why 63% of Americans side with the Republicans. He then repeated the false statement that failure to grant to government the ability to continue spend astronomical amounts of moneyamounts that I am convinced that the leftists on this board simply dont comprehendwill inevitably lead to defaulting of Americas debt. This is absolutely not true, nor is it true that it is paramount to the sky falling. The deficit and the debt arent the same, and servicing the treasury bonds is completely possible without raising Americas credit limit. Obama has said the word crisis so many times that it has lost its meaning. The American public have seen the results of the stimulus act, and no one is buying that it saved us from some mythical catastrophe, and no one is buying these easy disprovable threats of dire consequences if the government is able to bury itself it debt that--if there is anything this debate has proven it is this-- Democrat lawmakers have no intention of ever reducing or addressing the deficit in many meaningful manner. The media is baffled as to why Speaker of the House John Boehner is refusing to allow the raising of the debt ceiling, but it is obvious: because 63% of Americans understand the simple fact that if you have a credit card and are maxed out and in debt you do not need a higher credit limit or another credit card. President Obama is losing this debate, and Boehner is not afraid of defaulting on debt because that is nothing more than propaganda reminiscent of the way this administration has operated the last two years.
