    Obama delays request to hike debt ceiling


    Obama delays request to hike debt ceiling - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Delay of a few days only just so Congress gets more of a vacation. Humph! :mad: When will this stop? We have to make cuts!

    Ummmm...it was part of the deal. BTW, raising the debt ceiling is a routine matter. Only after the Tea Party came to town did it become the debacle that got the US downgraded.

    So let's request a $20 trillion raise in the debt ceiling then. It's just a matter of every day business right?
