    No I am not for it, but for the next few years I can see no viable alternative.

    I am very curious to see how the right will approach this when they get actual control of the house.

    What do you propose to do about the $1T+ of debt Obama has already booked for this fiscal year?

    Print another $1T at the Fed?

    I think we have to face reality - debt is a threat to our national security. The only way we are ever going to deal with our debt is when we have a crisis. Refusing to raise the debt ceiling will force such a crisis. It might be the only way to save our country.

    The debt is already booked. The debt ceiling is moot.

    Absolutely not.

    If it's any kind of honest limit, why do you raise it just because you've painted yourself into another corner?

    I agree, absolutely not. Esp not today when we still have so many means to reduce spending.

    12 years from now cutting spending will be as difficult as self lobotomizing. But today cutting spending is about as difficult as not buying the speedboat even tho it is a chick magnet.

    I love it. I hope, dearly, that Rand Paul or some other whacked-out Tea Partier fillibusters a raising of the debt ceiling. OOOoooo, I hope they do it. Let the public actually see what happens when the lunatics are in charge.
