Good grief whats an extension going to do? the ball is in Obama's court start cutting or no debt limit raise. These GOP RINO/Obama back pocket Republicans need to go.
What part of "pay your debt" do these guys not understand? And they want us to put them in charge of the country? PUHLEEEEZE .......
So they want to keep the nation in a state of uncertainty over whether the US will default for a few more months??????????? Are they trying to cause another downgrade of our credit rating? Start acting like grownups - pass a substantial increase in the debt ceiling to get that issue out of the way, and then deal with the issue of deficit reduction.
A short-term extension??? Come on, Paul, we are tired of your holding the economy hostage and not paying the debts already incurred! This won't help the economy to rebound! But, that's what Paul and the tparty wants. Gees, it is sooo obvious.
pass a substantial increase in the debt ceiling to get that issue out of the way, and then deal with the issue of deficit reduction.
You reward your kids AFTER they do their chores, not before. Until the left comes up with a plan to cut spending that includes more than just cute to the military, no debt limit increase. The ball is totally in their court.
We're not talking about kids and their chores - we're talking about damaging the US economy. The US has never defaulted on its obligations and hopefully never will. No responsible legislator would ever use such a threat to the economy as a means of extortion.
hawkeye56379, so rather than sully our great name as a AAA credit country we keep robbing Peter to Pay paul? The US should have the worst credit rating you can get, were broke, the only reason were not Greece is we can print money, its all fake guys the money were paying bills with is borrowed.
Why not ignite a rolling catastrophe that could inflict hundreds of billions in additional borrowing costs; spark a run on money funds; lead to a renewed financial crisis; severely disrupt financial markets and borrowing; kill fragile economic growth and push the economy back into recession due to higher interest rates and tightened credit? You ready, GOP?
