    No one. Just go back and read this current President's own past words on opposing raising Debt Limits. Hopefully there will be some real spending cuts attached but i'm not optimistic. Probably just more business as usual. It's very sad.

    We will lose so does it matter? It's Rich Dems babbling at rich Reps about how both of them feel the best way to waste our money will be.

    Close loopholes is fine by me but no tax increases to the rates.

    We are all losers, our children are losers and their children are losers.

    It would take every man, woman and child to cough up $50K each to pay off the debt Obama ran up.

    Since when does Obama need the support of Congress for anything other than a photo-op? He will pass it by decree, somehow :eek:
