    Damn those partisan Republicans that want to destroy the country.

    Wait, isn't Pryor a Democrat?

    Debt ceiling is going to get raised. Some legislators in conservative districts will need political cover so they will vote no. However this will get done.

    Pryor is a Conservative Democrat [Blue Dog]. Unfortunately, they are the reason the Democratic Congress didn't get as much accomplished as some of us hoped.

    So, then...
    You agree that labelling the GOP congressional minority as "obstructionist" and "the party of no" was just a bunch of partisan hooey.
    Right?

    Wait a minute.

    I thought it was the Republicans that stopped everything, even though there was nothing they could do. Have you been lying about this all along?

    Of course in the end it has to get done, but the Republicans should damn Sure try and Get as much Spending reduction as possible out of them in a deal. We are on a clear path to losing our Triple A rating. To those who do not think that is a big deal, check out how the Economies of other countries that had it and lost it are fairing. Realize that only like 5 Countries have ever lost their AAA Rating and then went on to regain it.

    While Default would be bad for our Rating, So is Raising the Debt Limit once again. The Only way to Avoid losing the Rating, is to show RIGHT NOW that we are indeed getting serious about Deficit Reduction. If we just raise this limit and do nothing about Spending. I wager we lose the AAA rating before we get to the New Limit we set.

    Indeed. Standard and Poors made that quite clear...and they weren't going to be manipulated by Obama's mignions to retract their statement.

    Bully for them.
