    If the Debt Ceiling isn't raised, & a default (or a partial default) is the result, who will the American public blame? I'm not asking for a partisan answer because obviously partisans will blame the opposition. I'm referring to independents, moderates, and people who are generally apolitical. They are the ones who will determine how any failure is viewed by a majority of Americans

    There won't be a default.

    There will be real cuts....And it'll be about time.

    The point is, SS checks WILL go out and the Earth will continue turning. Obama's just fear mongering.

    What the hell is up the nut's always seeking someone to "blame" something on? Christ reading some of these posts reminds me of my children.

    Well you can't blame dems if they want the debt ceiling raised and Retards stop it from happening, and that results in default.

    You mean like the following statement:

    i really hope so. if this isn't a clear indicator that we need to make serious cuts I don't know what is. We need to go beyond cuts, we need to trim waste and corruption. I just rean two govt employees got nailed for stealing $8 million in food stamps and selling them to friends and family members. waste and corruption in government is out of control
