    Looks like another battle to raise the debt ceiling will arrive just in time for Obama's first election loss.....

    The rating agencies are still looking for the same deficit reduction they were seeking last time we got downgraded because they perceived us lacking in the political will to address the problem.

    If you'll recall they cautioned that another downgrade might be warranted if the deficit wasn't dealt with. So has anyone seen any effort by Barry to attack the deficit? Anything?

    Would passing a Health care bill that reduces the deficit by over 120billion dollars count?
    Would reducing future military spending by 500billion dollars count?
    Would expanding IRS funding for tax cheats reducing the deficit by 4billion count?
    Would increasing taxes on companies that offshore reducing the deficit by several billion count?
    Wood a food safety bill that reduces the deficit by several billion, a DREAM act that reduces it by 1.4billion, anti-fraud measures, eliminating overspending on military goods, more energy efficient government buildings, raising tobacco taxes, count?

    Ignore Shaman, he got even less attention in programming than the normal Obamabot.
