    And time for the do nothing Republicans to start squawking about the debt ceiling. The ignorant bastards will vote against paying the interest on debts we've already made. I wonder if that's the way they run their personal business.

    No. We don't take out more debt to pay for the interest on the debt we already have. That's precisely why raising the debt sealing will never fix the problem.

    See, what we do is

    1) Cut our expenses
    2) Produce more income

    Government can easily cut its expenses. Producing income, however, is another matter all together. Unfortunately, most politicians have no idea how to actually generate revenue.

    Well, Cammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmpbell, I see you've already received your marching orders to try and deflect away from your dear leader punishing the rich.

    But that's ok, because the economy is now on it's way into the shitter, and you fucking socialists own it, all of it.

    That's the business of democrats today.... SOCIALISM.

    .

    Our "leaders" (cough) gave us precisely what they could have been expected to give us: A weak, milquetoast, nondescript bill that adds four trillion to the debt, but far more importantly, that allows them to do what really matters to them:
    • Preen before the cameras
    • Tell their constituents what they want to hear for the next election cycle
    • Tell their fundraisers what they want to hear for the next election cycle
    Because it ain't about us, folks, it's about them.
