    I know.However, they are wanting to do it to see if obama really will start cuts. If he don't this might not happen in 3 months

    The GOP is trying to force the Senate to FINALLY pass a budget, something Reid has refused to do for fear of endangering his party's candidates in the next election.

    snippet:

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va.— Scaling back their ambitions in the latest fight over the nation’s borrowing limit, House Republicans said Friday that they will try to pass a bill next week to raise the limit for three months. But they warned that the Senate must work with them to pass a budget deal during that time before they would agree to raise the debt ceiling for the long term.
    Under the bill, Congress would increase the debt limit through mid-April — long enough, House Republicans say, to give both chambers time to pass a budget agreement. Turning up the pressure on the Senate, the measure would withhold Congress’s paychecks if either chamber fails to adopt a budget by April 15.

    Granny says, "Dat's right - ol' Mitch gonna make `em do right onna debt...

    McConnell: 'I Would Be Stunned If We Raised the Debt Ceiling and Didn't Do Something About the Debt'
    September 18, 2013 -- Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says it make sense to discuss the nation's growing debt at the same time Congress debates yet another increase in the nation's borrowing limit.

    Remember when a Certain yound Democrat Senator said that the sitting President was "Unpatriotic" to have a $7 trillion debt?

    I wonder how he feels about the $14 trillion debt?

    I keep hearing how this administration has cut spending.
    Then why is it we always need to raise the debt ceiling to cover our debts?
