    House rejects debt limit hike in protest vote | Reuters


    The House of Representatives voted to reject a $1.2 trillion increase in the federal debt limit on Wednesday in a largely symbolic vote aimed at staking out election-year positions on government spending.



    The House voted 239 to 176 along party lines in favor of a "resolution of disapproval" against the increase sought by President Barack Obama, but the the winning tally was far short of the number needed to override an Obama veto

    Obama gutted the pipeline and the 100,000 jobs and Canadian oil in favor of his arab friends... vote down any money he wants to spend. I love to hear him whine.

    Damned straight. Throwing more money isn't going to work. All it does is get us farther in debt. Further entrences future generations to slavery to pay it off.

    I'd say give it to him with the same amount in cuts in the budget/government jobs and be firm about it. WE are broke.

    All of you know the GOP will go limp under its current leadership.

    Symbolic of what, when they will cave.

    It's more like 20,000 ON this topic.

    Nice attempt at hijacking though.

    Are you not getting sick of the school yard politics. Here is how it was planned. Obama could not O.K the pipeline because in fact it will only create 10 thousand jobs based on Canadian numbers. The left is against it, rightfully so. The product is more toxic than imaginable with no means of clean up. The pipeline is being constructed of thinner steel to cut costs and is being pumped at higher pressure. The pipeline has already had a dozen leaks. These are just facts. Obama comes out against the pipeline ahead of schedule in order to have something to give the republicans to raise the debt ceiling. End result is we lose they win. Higher debt and a project that benefits only one corporation who is refining the crap. Our environment suffers, our economy suffers and Obama and the right look like they are doing their jobs. Stupid shit like this pisses me off and if either side of the public thinks they won well then the country is full of idiots.
