WASHINGTON, July 11 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama and top U.S. lawmakers fell short on Monday of finding enough spending cuts for a deal to avoid an Aug. 2 debt default and Republicans came under fresh pressure to agree to tax hikes.
The two sides achieved no breakthrough in a roughly 90-minute meeting and scheduled a third straight day of talks for Tuesday. This came after Obama, at a news conference, declared it is time for both Republicans and Democrats to "pull off the Band-aid, eat our peas" and make sacrifices.

Amen and Amen! What an excellent post!
There was a post here on FR recently linked to an article about how all secular government (since the beginning of mankind) is simply sinful man's attempt to be his own law, and to reject the Law of God.
That is why so many Democrats today are hostile to EVERYTHING that is Judeo-Christian, but they themselves want to be our masters and gods.
"Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness and gladness of heart, because of the abundance of all things, therefore you shall serve your enemies whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger and thirst, in nakedness, and lacking everything. And he will put a yoke of iron on your neck until he has destroyed you."
Here is what the Democrats don't control, and will never control:
Barack Obama and the Democrats are NOT my God, and they never will be.
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
This reminds me of the wife/mom on “Downsized” who kept tearfully assuring the camera she just didn’t see anywhere else they could cut expenses. Then you find out from the financial advisor they’re spending $500/month eating at restaurants, $100/month on cheerleader lessons, $120/month on Starbucks...
Also it goes back to when the Israelites were crying out for a human king, forgeting that the Lord God is there KING if my memory serves me correct. If you know the Bible passage, THANK-YOU ahead! :)=^..^=
