    Well I figured I'd post this for people like you Dr. House who like using the poll that Americans don't approve of raising the debt ceiling. :)

    Though that gap between those numbers are also narrowing as more people find out what exactly not raising the debt ceiling entails.

    Let's divide up the debt as cost per citizen (leave those illegal aliens out of it, cause they get a free ride) and send every citizen their portion "owed". They have one year to come up with the money or be sold into slavery.

    Wonder how quickly spending would be cut, then!!!!!

    It's election time already. They are all moving into or already in Campaign mode. Can't trust a thing they do or say. None of them.

    I'd be pissed if I was a Republican considering how willing Mitch McConnell is to sell the ability to get real spending cuts done in order to play politics.

    Just curious about your little plan, who's going to enforce the being sold into slavery part?

    from the link...

    b) from the actual poll-
