Default is a red herring. If the ceiling weren't raised it does not follow that default is certain. Everyone knows this. Talk of default is the prime indicator that our so called leaders are purposefully weakening their bargaining positions. The house has the power of the purse. What they don't have is the will to use it. They are a castrati cabal. Maybe people like Rubio, Demint, Paul, Jordan, Bachmann, etc., could be called in to show Boehner and McConnell how to find their balls.
Unfortunate to hear Boehner allowed taxes on the table earlier this week. Don't even know what to say....very disappointing.
I don't know. He wasn't insulting and put the blame on Obama for changing his mind at the 11th minute of the 11th hour. He also stated point blank that the President nor any Democrat proposed a plan.
He'll have to be defeated by 10 points to cover the spread of graft and corruption. You think I'm kidding? This is a Chicago politician that gullible Americans put into office.......
I have to admit, Obama and the socialist-democrats looks more like the roadblock rather than the solution.
Good for Boehner. Here is a novel idea....don't raise the debt ceiling and live within our means?? Lol The democrats are beyond idiocy wanting to raise taxes on small businesses during an awful economy but of course, that would further destroy the private sector that they loathe.
I thought it was a weak press conference where he didn't take any shots at the POTUS that is obviously not serious about cuts. Levin did a great job defining the problem in the clips you posted- right now is the time to be forceful and call the administration out on the insufficient concessions in regards to their spending increases.
Edit: for example- over the next 10 years Obama has proposed adding 10 trillion to our national debt and yearly budget deficits larger than the amount he's proposing to cut.
