    Sorry Mr. President, congress controls the purse strings you fascist dictator. This is a man who goes on TV yelling that the GOP are the ones doing nothing, and here he is basically flaunting that he will not negotiate. Maybe those on the left on here will see this for what it is, the democrats in the senate and the president has been the ones doing absolutely nothing.

    As far as executive orders go, they dont mean shit, only congress can make law, not this assclown. They need to check his ass once on this, debt ceiling be damned.
    Bottom line is, if he is getting away with shit like this, it is because the GOP are allowing him to get away with it, which means they are all in it together.
    Checks and balances mean just that, they could check him, if they wanted to.

    What is there to negotiate? The debt ceiling WILL be raised because it's required by law that the obligations CONGRESS PASSED MUST BE PAID.

    This isn't about new spending. It's about paying the bills for spending already authorized.

    Screwing up the economy because of blind ideology- holding the economy hostage over the debt ceiling has never happened before- when Reagan tripled the debt or W doubled it it was never a problem- and this is the W Great Recession. The gall and hypocisy of the GOP is amazing, like the gullibilityof the dupes.

    By law it is also to be raised by congress, not the president. Noone is saying they are not going to raise it, therefore the president should negotiate with the GOP on it, but he chooses not to, so who is wrong here? The president. He wants shit on his terms and his terms only, like a spoiled little cry baby.

    .

    Why would they negotiate commitments that we've already made?

    Since Congress controls the purse strings, maybe they should stop spending so much. It is their spending which exceeds revenues which causes the debt ceiling to rise.

    Obama calling Bush unpatriotic for spending 4 trillion in 8 years and then turning around and spending over 6 trillion in four years is what's really amazing, add you guys turning a blind eye to your own presidents hypocrisy is icing on the cake.

    Leftist hack, only our debt must be paid, not our future budgeted spending.

    Budgets are made to be broken.
