Members of Congress should not undermine the U.S. government

United States Congressmen should not threaten the existence of the United States government simply because those Congressmen do not like a program. It is the height of fiscal irresponsibility for a Congress to threaten to not pay debts that it has incurred because it does not like a program that it has created. Voters should pay closer attention to the behavior of their elected officials and ask themselves whether those officials really represent them, of if those officials are instead paid-for hires of immoral billionaires who spend their time shoving cocaine up their nostrils.

The Gov't shut down continues. We have out of control debt and the ACA roll out still has some glitches. The President refuses to talk about either. The Republicans are simply doing what their constituency wants them to do. When people talk about extremist Republicans you are also talking about the people who voted them in. The Democrats are lead by a west coast liberal and a by an old guy that still refers to Black people by what shade of black they are and if they talk “black”. And you want me to respect that? Sorry, no can do.

Ann Coulter? Anyone who cites her in anyway other than disdain has to be insane.

Eleven days ago, on this blog, TheFrog wrote, "What makes Obamacare so bad anyway..."

Simple logic dictates that the "open and transparent" Obama administration was up to more than health care when they cane into office (gangbuster's style) immensely concerned about an issue that didn't affect 85% of the American public, at that time. Now, it affects EVERYBODY.

There has to be more cloaked goals behind ObamaCare than just to s-uck up votes For Democrats from the simple minded.

The first two that come to mind are; (A) A massive transfer of ownership of private property when this doomed-to-failure program collapse and (B) cooperative submission to loss of gun ownership by citizens not wanting to be kick off the government health care rolls, before they realize it's collapsing.

moderation, you probably should have. sorry for the Indians loss. i am not a big fan of baseball myself. my attention span does not allow me the enjoyment of the game. however in person, the game seems to be a great backdrop for some wonderful people watching and socializing.

ceiling as needed." the current budget battle has a direct effect on the national debt and the pending debt ceiling limit. i have taken a gander at the debt clock and it reveals some truely staggering statistics. i would highy recomend each american that has reasonable cognitive ability to view it for themselves. good or bad, it is not political in nature as it is simply numerical truths regarding the financial and social health of our nation. if i were a politician, i would be ashamed. regarding the 14th amendment....as of this moment the President has rejected that action. although Pelosi and some democrats said he should have not taken it off of the table. then again, just because he siad he wouldn't does not mean he won't. time will tell. oops almost time for Survivor!

moderation...i understand that. however the budget and national debt go hand in hand. for example: "The federal government raises trillions of dollars in tax revenue each year, though there are many different kinds of taxes. Some taxes fund specific government programs, while other taxes fund the government in general. When all taxes for a given year are insufficient to cover all of the government’s expenses—which is often the case— the U.S. Treasury borrows money to make up the difference." "The debt ceiling is the legal limit set by Congress on the total amount that the U.S. Treasury can borrow. If the level of debt hits the debt-ceiling limit, the government cannot borrow additional funds without Congress raising the debt ceiling. In this situation, if Congress did not raise the debt ceiling and the Treasury was unable to borrow, it would trigger a shutdown of the federal government and a default on existing loans. Congress has the legal authority to raise the debt c

And if this doesn't go away soon, you will see a 14 th admendment solution in about 12 days.

with due respect, lts, this is not the debt ceiling. the 'dunkeys' request is 70 billion below what the sequester requires. The debt is and has been coming down.the aca should be dealt with in the same way it it became law.again, those unfunded bills from days gone by created a big hole.

It was a valiant effort LTS but the liberal democrauts don't give a rats a s $ about paying back federal debt or interest !!! That is obvious or they wouldn't be in this "all or nothing " negotiating mode.

future borrowing and operation of the federal government. it is a staggering sum of money by any stretch of the imagination. i can't believe that you would stand by the democrats and say that raising the debt ceiling again is "any" solution for our problem. no matter how you slice it .it is part of the problem and not the solution. if you are heading down the wrong path..****ing to a concensus on continuing down said wrong path is folly and a waste of time. btw...concerning Iraq. there were weapons of mass destruction. refer to definitions of WMD's under the second amendment forum arguments.

moderation, this problem has not snuck up on anyone in the federal government. the opportunities to find a solution other than continuing the same mantra have been fruitless. at some point an adult has to step into the room and say enough is enough. the only thing i personally have heard is what not raising the debt limit will do to hurt. i have not heard one single word how raising the debt ceiling yet again!!! will accomplish anything other than extending and increasing our indebtedness. there is not a plan in place or trigger(sequester too small and politically a tool for party in power), other than control of the debt ceiling in which to affect any meaningful change. there are some americans that are saying enough is enough and are using their elected representatives to voice their concerns with their yea or ney votes. it should be sobering to realize that we are talking about the ability to BORROW money to cover the interest on the monies we owe, the anticipated interest of futur

good afternoon, lts- yes,but, and this is not how to accomplish a helpful solution. it is and will be costing millions and billions of dollars, not to mention personal medical and financial tragedies as a result of this fiasco.they, the right,sound similar to the ever changing and desperate bush/cheney chants we heard in efforts to sell the Iraq war to the American people.

sorry for some spelling errors in that i have been up for only a short while. in addition, the bleeped word in my previous post is the common term for flatulence.

ask yourself, why would be be in so much trouble managing our debt instead of compounding our debt? that does not work in business and it does not work in our personal lives unless getting outof debt is the end-goal. i fear that getting out of this long-term and never-ending debt is not the intent of our politicians and sadly it does not even amount to a gnats*****in the brain of most americans. the politicians have found the golden government teat that keeps on giving and it is called our the debt ceiling (misnomer) and a printing press(soon to be 100% electronic).

moderation, being a representative republic is a wonderful thing. embrace everyones voice. Obama got the sequester to inflict pain, the repulicans have the debt ceiling and continuing resolution. i think you will agree that the republicans have given in quite a bit on the past debt ceiling battles. frankly i would much prefer that both parties come together to institute a "balance the debt" and "pay as you go" policy. it would reveal to the american people just how poorly our legelators have managed our fiscal well-being. should our country demand that we square-up our debt once and for all and take it out of our personal property and income what we actually owe, the sound of the gasp and intensity of the rage would be like no one has ever seen. that is why they continue the policy of borrowing and monetizing our debt. if the democrats were outraged at credit card compnay policies, what do you think they have been doing to the dumbed-down electorate. you have to as
