The more they yell and scream, write outrageous columns, get in front of cameras and say outrageous things, make outrageous doomsday predictions on the House floor, the more we know the right thing is being done.

They cannot allow the American people to see that we can actually survive without huge government. They cannot allow the American people to see that the economy will actually get better without the government taking away it’s fuel. They cannot allow the American people to see that they were wrong and have been wrong for nigh unto a century in power.

They must, at all costs, dispose this line of thinking that people do not need Big Bro...................

The left is totally off their medications; projecting madly on the Republicans. Hang tough Republicans.

235 Republican House members signed a 2010 pledge not to raise taxes

Worth about as much as a promise to cut spending over 10 years. Hope I'm wrong.

The libs want a tax??? OK, anyone making less than 24K a year will pay an automatic 5%. This will effectively spread the pain around, and stop the non payment of taxes from an entire “protected” class....put that one to ‘em ( also, make welfare recipients pay taxes on what they get )

Obama and MSM arguments are completely bogus. they claim that absent of a raise of the debt ceiling, US Treasury won't be able to pay all(!) its bills. So, the US Treasury doesn't receive weekly (or even daily) large amounts of money from various taxes we pay?? If so, how come they will have no money unless borrowed???

Now about default - paying interest on loans, paying for essential services is a must for the Government and they have enough money for that. No more borrowing means reduction of the bloated various - to use article word - cockamamie entitlement programs. Threat of default is a blackmail, plain and simple.

Not to mention that the idea of inability to pay debt w/o making more debt is absurd.

In the root sense of the word “idiot,” that is, unlearned, uninformed, naive.

The GOP should stand its ground — and fix bayonets.

The Establishment is in a panic. It has been jolted awake to the realization that the GOP House, if it can summon the courage to use it, is holding a weapon that could enable it to bridle forever the federal monster that consumes 25 percent of gross domestic product.

That's a big fat "if." Here's hoping that this time around, they don't cave, as they did in April.

By threatening default, the White House is saying that it will deliberately default on the debt rather than reduce spending.

Paying the debt is a legally-mandated expenditure, as are other things like Social Security and Medicare. When there is no money, it's up to the President to decide what legally-mandated expenditure gets paid, and in what order of priority. Then if there's money left, non-mandated things get paid for.

This would actually be a powerful weapon in the hands of the next Republican president if we can hold the house: have the House not raise the debt ceiling, and allow the President to just not give any of the suddenly-limited money to the Dept of Education, EPA, etc.

Those trapped in the mass paradigm (Leftist groupthink) that’s destroying the U.S.A. are behaving more and more like raving lunatics!

Sorry. The fanaticism lay in the motives of those who elevated Federal spending levels to obscene and unsustainable levels.

Historically, I have not been a Pat Buchannan supporter or fan. But this article is pure gold.

If Buchannan were to throw his hat in the ring, this article would almost be enough to get my vote.

They have no respect for out tax dollars now.

Hillary will just give more to the Muslim outreach programs and cook stoves for Africans, or maybe more fancy new limos for the state department.
