    Republicans on the Debt Ceiling: Screwing Over America - The Daily Beast

    The poor are so bothersome, aren't they? Now the Baggers shout, 'THE DEMOCRATS DID IT!"

    When are you gonna' learn that the Republicans and Democrats play for the same team?

    Do some research on the Federal Reserve and Google "1,500 Quadrillion in Derivatives" then get back to us.

    You have to get beyond just cheering for or booing Political Parties like it's the American league or National league.

    Oh yes, and the answer is the Tea Party. They have driven the country to the brink of Default. They have proven their point but they want more. They want Chaos.

    Since debt payments are $20 billion a month and tax revenues are about $200 billion a month, why would we "default" if we don't raise the debt ceiling? What are the $200 billion a month you think is more important then paying debt payments since default would be so catastrophic?

    Spoken like someone who bounces a lot of checks. :lol:

    Read about "cash flow" in a business text, and then get back to us.

    I bounce checks because I don't know how to pay $20 billion payments on $200 billion revenues? And you're saying I need to look up "cash flow?" BTW, I'm an MBA in finance chickie, I understand it fine. The answer is you can pay it. You should look up "political ideologue" in a political science book.

    Why don't you get out of the "poor zone." You know - go to grad school. Accept additional responsibilites. Work long hours. Be dedicated/honest. Help others.

    Basics

    Try it asswipe

    Democrat policies created the middle class?

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Man, libtards sure have some idiotic ideas!

    Men like Henry Ford created the middle class. All government education has done is create a race of servile maleducated morons.

    Let me get this straight: the TEA party forced Obama and the Democrats to spend $2 trillion more than we take in every year?
