CHICAGO (CBS) North suburban Republican Congressman Joe Walsh has a new YouTube video on his website where he tells President Barack Obama to quit lying about the impact of not raising the national debt ceiling by Aug. 2.
In a nearly three-minute video released Wednesday, Walsh says, President Obama, quit lying. He claims there is plenty of money to pay federal debts and cover the costs of Social Security benefits, even if the debt ceiling isnt raised by the deadline.
Have you no shame, sir? Walsh asks in the video, telling Obama to show some leadership for once.
Obama has said the nation will default if Congress doesnt raise the national debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion by Aug. 2. The president told CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley that he could not guarantee that Social Security checks would go out next month if a deal on the debt wasnt reached.

Walsh says thats not true, but Republican leaders dont dispute it. However, they have disagreed with the White House on the best way to make up for more borrowing. The president wants to raise taxes on the wealthy, but Republicans favor major cuts in spending.
White House representatives did not immediately comment on Walshs video.
Latest version of my proposed Constitutional Amendment limiting borrowing term to one year and requiring that the funds be used to pay for goods, not labor - with the exception of declared wars by Congress:
Congress shall only have the power to borrow money on the credit of the United States where the term of the debt issued is not more than one year, and those funds must be used to purchase goods; said funds shall not be used to pay employees of the Federal government nor shall they be used to pay labor costs associated with goods or services that the Federal government purchases.
In time of War, where such War is declared by Congress, Congress shall have the power to borrow money where the debt issued is used solely for any military combat purpose specifically related to Wars so declared. Until such War debt is repaid fully, any increase in the total annual expenditure of the Federal government shall be prohibited.

When news is bleak, a sense of humor saves me jocularity once in a while is a good thing
Anyone notice the venom being spewed on the YouTube page? Unbelievable profanity-filled hate and lies being rapid-fire posted. Then again - maybe not so “unbelievable” if you have ever looked at the DU web site...
Quousque tandem abutere Obama patientia nostra
I checked out his video. Way to go Walsh, great message!
Next time, work on the audio a bit.
Everyone give a view to his message on youtube.
Have you no shame, sir?
Well...no. He doesn’t. Shame is for mortals.
My understanding is that Joe has basically been redistrict out of office. Is this true?
Liberals cannot try to argue without profanity.

On the other hand.......when I talk about Zero.....
Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.
That’s my Congressman!!! WAY 2 GO JOE! :D
Does make me feel better. And I may make obscene gestures to the TV screen when he is on occasionally.
