SO, WHO CARES?

In the first place, if the House had passed a debt ceiling bill, the Democrat controlled Senate has assured us that they would not pass it.

The end result would still be no deal.

If, by some miracle, the Senate DID pass it, President BO, the Child President, has said he would veto it.

The end result would STILL be no deal.

So, what does it matter?

In the second place, there is no "deadline" to begin with and certainly not August 2nd.

"But, but CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC and CNN have all said the deadline is August 2nd.," you cry!

They either don't know, or they are lying.

Now, you know that those august news groups are not so dumb as to think August 2nd is a real deadline, don't you?

So, what's left?

They are deliberately lying to you.

(I wonder what other things they lie to you about. Maybe they should supply us with a list of the things we can trust them on and the things we cannot trust them on. The former is bound to be a very short list.)

Thirdly, either way there will be no "default." It simply will not happen.

We will still pay the interest on the debt, with or without a "raise the debt ceiling" bill, therefore there will be no default.

With no default, there is no crisis.

This is WAY too much ado about nothing.

The government must learn to live within its means, and that's all there is to it.

The Boehner bill was a bad bill, because it uses the same old political game of calling less of an increase a decrease.

The Reid bill is a bad bill because it is just plain stupid.

Just how big SHOULD the government be, anyway?

Is there a limit in the minds of liberal/progressives?

No?

Well, that, my friend, is socialism.

And I don't want a socialist country.

Therefore, forget the raising of the debt ceiling and start living within your means, lawmakers.

Give us back the responsibility of taking care of ourselves.

Only those with infirmities greater than those of Steven Hawking should be given one single dime of welfare, anyway, that is: those who cannot work.

Reduce taxation to a small, level, flat rate (for those earning above the poverty level) and watch employment sky-rocket as businesses grow and hire.

Or don't.

If you don't, you'll just maintain the status quo.

Or worse.

As one politician once put it: " ... 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 US Government can not 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." -- Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Is he a joke, or what?

If they don't resolve the debt ceiling you'll find out who cares.

Possibly you have investments and you are drawing on them. If they take a bog hit because the debt ceiling is not reached then as you draw on them you will seriously limit any future income you may generate.

Oh, you'll find out.

Sorry Ducky guy, But I disagree, the REAL crisis is that the spending is out of control and must end.
Despite all the rhetoric and all the threatening by Obama, Reid, Geithner, and the media , I can tell you that there is no possibility that the U.S. will default on its debt after August 2nd, even if there isn’t an agreement and the debt ceiling is not raised. and not increased.
Maybe we will see, or maybe we won't, either way, the sky will not be falling.
We will still get up in the morning to go to work, and we still will be paying taxes on Apr. 15th.

Damn, you clowns don't get it. Stop listening to Rush and try to figure out what a reduction in spending and a ratings downgrade are going to do to this economy.

As I said, I feel bad for those who are drawing on their investments because a violent decline is going to seriously hurt them.

Did you notice that this quarter's growth was under 1.5% and you want to cut spending?

Baggers are absolutely in the ozone.

Are you referring to that violent decline that they expected and didn't get in the Stock Market today?

And why do you liberal fools keep on quoting Rush, when us conservatives don't?
Curious minds want to know.

Ducky: "Damn, you clowns don't get it."

"Damn, you liberal/progressive lefitists don't get it."

WOW! I've discovered a new wonderful rebuttal! Thanks, Ducky!

Robert, "stop listening to Rush" is generic. I don't know which particular outlet you have for your misinformaton.

Unlike you Ducky, many of us form our opinions on our own! I know that's a tough concept to wrap your head around!
