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.

Could be treasonous,you say,greek.Do you really believe articles of impeachment have not been brought forth because Barry is being given one more chance to do the right thing? Do you, greek, hold that no republican votes on tha aca makes the case for treason? Of course it doesn't. Disapproval of something doesn't qualify it as a treasonable act.

And how much of the war bill was kept off of the books until Bush left office?

How much of that is responsible for the 16 plus trillion debt?

Seems you guys are leaving out the sentiment that was coursing through this nation post 9-11.

If you aint with us you are against us.

And I think it is totally on the Bush regime that they lied about the need and intel for the war in Iraq.

Besides if the Bush years were so great why did people go looking for hope and change?

Hmmmm?

Posted 585 days ago.

You're right, thegreek. Jay Rockefeller and the democrats voted for the war. Their support is taped and recorded and they lie when they deny it.

Blame Bush is old and worn out. The democrats own the wars now, along with the fiasco obamacare.

If you set yourself in the middle of all this political crap and take a look at the situation it presents this nation you will come to one conclusion.

This nation is without a doubt tee totally mindf**ked.

What we are witnessing is probably comparable to previous nations and their fall from prominence into mediocrity.

And not one single group is to blame.

Everyone is!!!!

"Someone should tell Kendall that George Orwell is not the personal property of sore-losers on the right."

Never said he was Fred. It would seem that based on your many posts about the topic...it seems you are offended that anyone would use Orwell's writings in a way you do not agree with.

There has always been arguments over budgets and raising the debt. The government has shut down 17times or more in recent history and as far as getting along, the demoncrats held bush hostage over funding the troops vs domestic spending increases when they held Congress after 2006. Don't remember Bush ever saying they held a gun to his head or to head if the American people though. I truly wonder if a sane person will ever run for President for you would have to be crazy to want the job.

Who knows at what point our debt level will reach the “breaking point”? Who wants to find out?

Not me! That ‘s why we should work to reduce our debt now. But we’re not effectively working to reduce our debt because our disdain for one another makes us hurl insults instead of cooperating to do what almost all of us agree needs to be done.

Let us put aside our tribal warfare and be sober-minded, in all things showing ourselves to be a pattern of good works; speaking words that cannot be condemned, so that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of us.

If we don’t start cooperating, we’re finished as a sovereign country. A house divided against itself cannot stand.

Speaking for myself,I understand our economy is driven by the middle class,which has been depressed by the downturn in the recent years. The trade deficit is being reduced......., the economy is growing, and the opportunity to negatively exploit the financial markets has also been somewhat reduced.How many millions a day is this shutdown poop costing our economy? And don't call me Shirley ..... (-:

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.
