    We need to take what we can get from these idiots. Raising the debt ceiling shouldn't even be in question for so many reasons, and the fact that house Tea Party members (I call them that because us ACTUAL Republicans refuse to associate with them.) is more than asinine. Do these guys read the news? Do they understand that everyone thinks they are taking this country to hell? They don't care though and neither do the people on this site that agree with them.

    All of these people that associate with the Tea Party annoy me to no end. I am done defending being a Republican because they give us such a bad reputation. From berating Governor Christie for his greetings of the President to the way they take Rush Limbaugh seriously, it all just drives me nuts. Now, they think that by shifting the discussion to other cuts and off of the ACA we wont be able to see through their facade. I would like anyone on this site who affiliates with the Tea Party to provide me a concise response to what they are doing to this nation.

    If this is true there will be some spectacular Republican House primaries along in the fullness of time.

    as we get closer to the media faux drop dead debt ceiling , the gops influence will increase, some negative stench dissipate, the fickle public even with the media trying to spoon feed them the democrat/obama narrative, cannot keep 2 things in their heads at the same time, they do to a large extent sppt spending restraints with lifting the debt ceiling.

    Obama has not faired as well as he thought he would during the 'gop' shutdown, the dems have made some stupid mistakes with very bad optics ( and pumping the sequester disasters that never happened except via obama admin machinations didn't help either) so, the public eats up trash like that, and the admin. cannot totally escape responsibility for it....as it moves to the debt ceiling, things will even out....the gop may have survived the shutdown miasma....

    Obama suggested a six week CR AND then NEGOTIATIONS- WITHOUT screwing the economy. Only adult involved I SWEAR...Boehner of course said no...only has cost 0.5 per cent in growth so far...
