    Boehner: Obama has no debt plan. Republicans do - Political Hotsheet - CBS News


    Couple things.

    1) We don't need a plan to pay down the debt right now. What we need is a plan to grow the economy, and the GOP plan won't do that. Why?

    2) 18% of our GDP is $2.6T which would mean that $1.2T would need to be cut from the government, which would of course lower our GDP and require additional cuts. Basically though, all discretionary spending (military included) would need to end under the GOP "plan".

    3) Why is Boehner whining over Obama's leadership, when Boehner is Speaker of the House, the actual group of people who vote on this whole damn thing in the first place.

    With the OP's outlook, we'll be raising the debt ceiling every other week.

    The democrats have been scared to death to pass a budget simply to avoid criticism. They waited for Republicans to do it so they and faggots like you and your ilk can whine about the Republican plan. You're either too dumb or too partisan to see that, not a good thing either way......

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure....It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

    So I take it you can't find any leadership in the idiot either. because if he had our nation wouldn't be without a budget for the last two year's and just so you don't forget the last so called budget obama proposed was tossed out by the Left....ya real leadership in that one.

    heh heh A for effort. But seriously, you could just say you don't understand the GOP plan. I could explain it to you.
