    Why is Lindsey doing this? He already knows that the President said that he wasn't going to let the GObP use the debt ceiling as a bargaining chip (tool of extortion) to the budget negotiations.

    His proposal is perfectly reasonable.

    Why are you people so insistent on stealing from our children and bankrupting our nation?

    How is raising retirement age "grossly unfair to people who have paid in?"

    If Reid and Obama would just do budgets, we wouldn't have such a crisis each year.


    But they of course don't want to give up Obama's totalitarian power.

    So, fuck them very much. They can come begging to the Tea Party for money to spend.

    Right, there's no reason to look past tomorrow and what your dear leader wants, is there? Short sighted ignorant liberals are the one who now refuse to look at the near 100 trillion in unfunded liabilities looming that will crush our economy. But what the hell, future generations can deal with it, RIGHT?
