Well how things can change in a single day. Today the President loses my accolades because in just one day he has returned to partisan hackery that we have come to know him for. Today - he announces SS checks may not be mailed Aug. 3rd if the debt ceiling is not raised. Bullshit. That is either a lie today, or it is a lie that they have been saying that the debt ceiling would not delay SS as there is enough money to carry through for several months. If this is true - that there truly is not enough money in the federal coffer to pay Social Security - then folks we are in a faaaaaaaaaaaar greater abyss than we ever thought of before - and this President has spent us into it.
