    Ah what a difference a few years makes...

    Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘‘the buck stops here.’’

    Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.

    America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.

    Let the Congress offer the President a budget that won't require the debt ceiling to be raised in February,

    if that's what they want.

    He was right.

    Bush started 2 wars, a department of homeland security, a new medicare benefit and did this while cutting taxes..twice.

    He left Obama with the bill.

    :mad:
