    He has no reason not to play hardball right now because his leverage will never be higher.

    '(CNSNews.com) - The U.S. Treasury quietly warned at the end of a statement issued last Wednesday that it expects the federal government to hit its legal debt limit before the end of this year--which means before the new Congress is seated--and that "extraordinary measures" will be needed before then to keep the government fully funded into the early part of 2013.'

    Still trying to dive the country into the ground, eh? If the Reps don't get their act together, I see a House reversal in '14 and a big win for Hillary in '16. Americans won't keep putting up with fools that don't realize that we're not going to get out of the deficit mess on cuts alone.

    The CBO projects Obama debt to be over $20 billion by the end of this term.

    Is that driving the country into the ground, or not?

    For the last 8 presidents, 2/3rds of jobs have come under Democratic administrations. The debt has spiraled out of control under Republicans. Remember, Mitt wanted to spend two trillion more on our military.

    Obama's first year in office, the yearly debt was over 1.4 trillion. Republicans gave him that. This year, it's slightly over 1 trillion, cut by nearly a third.

    When are you guys going to start dealing in "facts".

    Don't be a bigger ass than usual. Obama racked up $6 trillion in one term, and the CBO projects it to reach $20 billion in total debt before he is put down.

    That's what happens when you let the top 10% control 90% of the wealth, and then insist they don't have to pay their fair share.

    In other words, whatever happens, Boehner is responsible. Good.

    Republican intransigence over workable solutions is what's driving us into the ground. They keep talking about not raising taxes to give the job-creators room to do their thing. We haven't. Where are the jobs? This election proves Americans are getting wise to that and '14 & '16 will only be worse, unless the Republicans get wise, too.

    Do you understand the meaning of the word, "Trend"?

    I just noticed you said "put down". You are a piece of shit. Shame on you.
