Increasing the debt ceiling is irresponsible. Why doesn't Obama take any responsibility for the our horrible debt?
There he goes again, threatening the elderly and soldiers who are largely made up of Republicans. Has anyone else ever noticed that never does he speak about the welfare moochers not getting a check? Rather he threatens the people that produced or provided a service to this Country and or are still providing a service to this Country. However never a word about not paying out to welfare and entitlement class of people that many of which have never produced or provided a service rather provide only a burden. It happens to be a large portion of his voter base.
it should be obama , his employees , congress and the senate that do not get paid , not those that receive soc. sec . , our troops ect !! let the feds bear the brunt its their debt!
the first to not get paid should be the people that work for obama and the congress and the senate !!! should not be a threat to soc. sec . , our troops ect ... let the feds take the brunt not the people !!!
How about not paying him, the congress, senate, welfare recipients, all the nations we give money to, the UN, government workers.
Just another diversion. Stuart Varney an economist journalist on FOX said this morning with all the trillions of tax dollars coming in there is no way that SS and the troops won't be paid. OBAMA IS A MONOTONOUS LIAR. He must be impeached.
Ladies and gentlemen, I think there's an insane idiot in the White House. The guy's crazy. Somebody call 911. Hurry, it's urgent.
Obama gives billions to the Muslim Brotherhood, but he threatens to withhold pay from our troops and our seniors? He needs to be impeached for treason! www.impeachpresidentobama.weebly.com
Did not listen - getting sick of hearing his voice.
How many troops can you pay with the 12 million bucks he dumped in Hawaii?
Brainless idiocy in action - kinda like watching a dumb dog. To put it nicely.
Obama is stating the facts. If the debt ceiling isn't raised (as it always has been until he came into office), these expenses that congress incurred will not be able to be paid.
Congress already spent the money for these things and now Congress is trying to hold the debt ceiling hostage.
Blame you good old boy Republicans if the bills that they incurred aren't paid.
The President is not the one who spends the money, he does not have that power. It is Congress who spends the money and if they spent it and are now refusing to pay the bill, it is their fault.
Learn who these things work before you go pointing fingers!
Time to stand up to this communist and call his bluff. Not pay the troop? Not pay senior citizens? he does not have the balls.
Somebody please tell this punk that he doesn't sign the troops paychecks and it's not his monies that he loves to spend in excess, It belongs to the American taxpayer, the poor saps that he is lying to every time he opes his mouth, and WE are getting pretty damn tired of his rhetoric.
It's time for him to get off his high horse and start acting like a president than a spoiled brat ! In other words "pull your head out of your A.." !
In a perfect world the government would cut bureaucrat's pay by half and start closing un-needed departments (OSHA, FEMA, HUD, HHS, NLRB, Dept of Education and Homeland Security including TSA), maybe even cut Congressional and administrative pay.
But, alas that will not happen because this is a marxist/socialist administration and they will only hurt those who can least afford to be hurt (the poor and the elderly, and those who are under oath to our military).
Oh the thoughts/words that are going through my mind at this very moment.
Lord forgive me.
This man is just unconscionable and simply ruthless.
This guy has obviously never learned the most important lesson if you are a despot.
NEVER SIDE AGAINST THE ARMY!!!!! What an idiot. It's almost as if he is asking for a military coup against him.
I would tell this communist President to "bring it on!" This slimeball is a pathological liar! He has been schooled and trained under Saul Alinski's school of Marxism, Lies, and Deception! Don't let this commie use his scare tactics. If he wants to double down, then we should call his bluff! He scared the Republicans into giving in on raising taxes on the so-called, Rich people! But, now the liberals too, are seeing their taxes go up--because of Oloser's lies and BS! I say let him bring it! Let's expose this pig once and for all!
Hey Obama sorry sonofabitch how about we first NOT pay one damn soul in Congress or you or Biden or Hillary or Timmy G. or Panetta or the SCOTUS or any of the other useless POSs in your regime??? You are president Obama not Emperor Obama. God has a place for souls like you and it is damn hot.. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I wish I could really say what I want to say about this inept,incompetent, narcissistic POS!
Ok Mr. President let’s cut those millions and billions of new regulations created since you have been President. Or that humongous hurricane relief bill that should have been around $30B but went to the house at $60B+. Or how about the tax breaks to Hollywood that was given in the fiscal cliff bill. There are plenty of areas to cut, Mr. President!
Wow he has to threaten again to get his way. I'm not gonna play if you don't play my way! what a despicable little bully child he is.
"Raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. It simply allows the country to pay for spending that Congress has already committed to. These are bills that have already been racked up." - Obama
The national debt is the amount of debt that we have already racked up. (presently at $16.4 trillion). The debt ceiling is merely a number, a line drawn in the sand, that says here and no further. Without reducing the spending, the debt ceiling will be reached, as the interest on the debt is constantly growing.
We need to reduce the spending to keep from continually raising the debt ceiling. Unfortunately for us, whenever we do raise the debt ceiling, this administration sees an opportunity to spend more, thereby reaching the debt ceiling even faster every time.
This is the reason Obama wants to have total control to raise it at will, because the time between raising it keeps getting shorter and shorter. It won't be long before we are arguing on a daily basis about the debt ceiling and nothing else will get done in Congress (oh, wait, nothing else ever does get done in Congress. We must be there).
What if all state govenors [all 57 ha ha] summoned our representatives in Congress to immediately come home from Washington to their respective districts and stand by for a series of face to face townhalls with We the People in the next several weeks ahead to discuss the future of this Nation Under God we live in. BO`s confirmation could stand down for a time and I`m confident the powers that be in the Pentagon are quite capable of defending us in the absence of politicians...just a thought???
typical narcissist... yawn alert... it is against the constitution to with hold military pay... more threats
Problem is: Does God still want to save us? I mean we look more and more like Sodom and Gommorah. Abortions, gays and gay marriage in a cathedral - -God removed from schools and from everywhere - and we the people are doing nothing to fight for God?
Why would God still want to save us? Help yourself and God will help you...are we helping ourselves? What do we do, really, to save our country? NOTHING!!!
That's what I think. The only one who could save America is Sarah Palin. Seems that God told her that it was not worth it.
Really? i don't think SP can 'save' us. I lso don't think she's got a fast track to
God. She quit her job half way through. Let her run for the Senate seat in 14, and show us she can stick to a job that does not pay millions a year as her fox gig does. Let's find someone like Ryan to run and kick butt in 16.
The reason she resigned as governor was because of the frivolous lawsuits being filed against her and her family by liberals intent on destroying her. She didn't want the state of Alaska to have to pay for those suits so she resigned. Now, there's a problem with this because...? Sound to me like you watched Saturday Night Live and took everything they said to heart. Get your news from the Onion do ya?
And as for Ryan... I live in the same town he does and after his last little trick with Boehner I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher. He's proven himself to be just another RINO.
Wow...no wonder why we are in such a mess...another jealous woman.
Conservative Ryan? You mean the one who just signed the last bill with Boehner? That Ryan - the one who also agreed on..actually everything since 4 years to please obama or the rinos? That Ryan who was so lame that he could not lift anyone to save romney?
So, in other words... nothing changed. Give him ultimate power or he can't promise we'll make it through everything alive.
This man is a pathological and shameless liar. EVERYTHING he said was bolshoi. Completely. We have the money to pay our bills. But we do not have the money to keep up with his frivolous spending.
I'm stunned that he's such a complete waste of skin... deliberately, traitorously lying his bottom off... and once again, the media covers for him.
Shameless and so destructive.
And it's ALL the GOP's fault? Lying SOB.
And like the good RINO weasels they are, the Repubs will once again knuckle under and do as 'Massa' insists. And you spineless slugs wonder why We the People no longer support your party of Demunist-Lite!
Talk about arrogance......this man takes the cake. Dodge questions right and left..saying the Republicans are one sided, then threatens to use executive order to get what HE wants. Why is there no talk about not paying the Congress and Senate as well as himself if we have no money?????? I guess if he threatens our troops and the elderly with no payments he figures he will get his way because NOONE wants our military and elderly to pay the price of our screwed up government. When are people going to wake up and quit acting like the rats following the Pied Piper. This president is the best puppet the New World Order has ever had. His ego actually thinks he's important and his way is the only way. While I agree both sides have a lot of work to do...it will never happen with this man at the helm. Just my opinion.
Fox was saying before the speech (and I changed channel), 'this would be the last speech of his first term'.
And no doubt, tomorrow will be the first speech (for this media hog), of his second term.
Read the release. Boehner has already caved on the increase of the debt limit--"consequences to not raising debt ceiling are real".
"In the final press conference of President Obama's first term, he says he won't negotiate with Republicans over the debt ceiling — insisting that it be raised to let the government pay its bills".
That's not what this lying, 2 bit, situational hypocrite was saying while Bush was President.
"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 cannot 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
Obviously, the 'buck doesn't stop here' now that this hypocrite is writing the checks, huh.
"Americans deserve better." Yes, we do but instead we got you.
HOT checks to the tune of 16 trillion plus....the plan to crater our economy so the globalist elites can cash in on America`s implosion is on schedule...BO knows, Soros knows, those who promote the UN Agenda 21 know, and the muslim brotherhood know, people are on to their game so their acts in desperation to control a FREE people are beginning to unravel the FRAUD....just ask Hillary
Typical Chicago gutter rat, strong arm, thug, low life political hack strategy we have all come to expect from this guy. It has been four years since this Government has put out a budget, the Senate has been in Democrat contol for six straight years and Congress was in Democrat control for four of those six years and still no budget. This really is a Post Consitutional America we are living in. How long will these crooks be able to pull the wool over the Liberal voters eyes by pointing their fingers at the minority party, demonizing the Republicans when they couldn't even pass a budget when they had the House, Senate and the Whitehouse?
