    Ya all we need is for the Senate to agree to cuts. As it stands right now the house has passed budget bills and the Senate REFUSES to even consider them.

    And in Budget talks about CUTTING the Budget the Dems demanded more spending.

    But hey lets pretend they are not part of the problem.

    They did agree to cuts ( Which in my book was nuts ). They didn't agree to the number that the Republicans asked for..and I seriously think that even if they met the number..it still wouldn't be enough.

    The end game on this one is getting rid of Medicare and Social Security..along with the cuts.

    You know what?

    Screw you.

    On an almost daily basis you display your ignorance of civics, history and almost everything else.

    Doesn't it become embarrassing?

    Hypocrisy.

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.

    “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.” Barack Obama, Senator. 2006.

    In 2006, every single Democrat voted against raising the ceiling. Why now is it ok? Hmmm? What fundamental shift took place that it is now not a sign of failed leadership? For the record, I do not blame Obama - at least not just Obama. I blame every single fucking congresscritter.

    I dunno.

    Maybe it's because the rest of Congress voted 19 times to raise it..and authorized Bush to spend some 4 trillion dollars. Maybe they were really trying to make a point about a President who entered office with a surplus..and was about to leave it with a massive deficit.

    In any case..it was the wrong thing, for Senator Obama, to do.

    So when Bush spent to try to stave off recession, that was bad. But when Obama did it, it was ok? I'm confused about this shit. Because if it's ok for one, then it's ok for both. But you cannot have it both ways.
