Republican Obstructionism

There is less than a month until our nation's fiscal cliff is reached. While some would have us believe that reaching the fiscal cliff will be the end of the world, in reality, it will barely put a band-aid on our severed limb of debt and spending problems. The problems were not a result of a single presidency. The debt and current spending deficits are the result of decades of spending more money than is taken in by our federal government. It has been exacerbated by two recent wars and the worst economic recession in 70 years.

So for you lefties and Obama apologists, when is the debt too much, what is the breaking point? Yes the debt is more important now than it was under previous presidents because its much much higher.

random- your quote of Barry's remark, in 2006,is quite accurate,...... however you neglect to acknowledge that the quote reflects the absence of a funding policy for two military actions, tax cuts, and a prescription drug assistance program. And,we should feel fortunate these debits came on the heels of a budget surplus.

This isn't debt problem. This isn't a health care problem.

No what we are witnessing is starting to look a lot like sedition by American oligarchs dressed up as a grassroots movement with the sole intention of shrinking the government to such a small size that power is effectively handed to those oligarchs.

After all what is on of the cornerstones of the what the right says.

Private industry can take over and do what the government does.

Thats all fine and dandy until you figure out that it would pretty much lay control of this country into the hands of a few people who have no reason to show any loyalty to the people.

In fact the have shown full well they have no loyalty to anything but wealth.

its amazing how the debt limit was always raised with no hassle, by both parties. yet suddenly, after Pres. Dolemite was elected, mysteriously the debt became a problem.

yeah,*****democrats. why couldn't they just leave our debts off the bill so it'd look like our spending was small? you know, like the republicans do.

In 2006 NPR reported: "The federal budget deficit will hit a record $422 billion this year, according to new projections from the Congressional Budget Office. The CBO also predicts $2.3 trillion in new debt will be run up by 2014." They didn't expect the Democrats taking over spending and raising the debt more than three times that estimate. How fondly we miss the old record, while fearing how high will it go.

"The fact that we're here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. Leadership means '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. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit."Senator Barack Obama, 2006. At the time the debt limit was raised to $9trillion. That amount has almost doubled in the past seven years with another trillion waiting in the wings to be borrowed as soon as it's made available. President Obama now regrets those remarks but I regret we are stuck with him.

arguing on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics. Even if you win, God still doesn't love you.

How about this?

Lets try a little game of honesty. Dig real deep and tell me why you even bother to post on here.

I'll do the same. I know exactly why I post on here.

Here's a hint. We have it in common although you will try and deny it.

I realize it is far easier to give a sarcastic reply rather than take a hard look at your bias and rhetoric.

Orders come on down from the top from comrade Obama!

I'ma doing my best to be a compliant little socialist.

Um didn't I say that when I said this "Which party openly admits it wants preferred treatment based on skin colors? Democrats!".
