” Impeach the corrupt, usurping bastard! “

There is the correct answer. Don’t raise the debt ceiling a penny. Let the Obammunist do the wrong thing ALONE! Then we can ruin his chance for reelection.

Not raising the debt limit does not mean we will default on our debt. There’s still sufficient income (close to $200B) coming in monthly and that more than covers the debt plus a myriad of programs. And the debt would be paid first before anything. Default is not an issue; never has been. It’s only been used as one by Obama and the Democrats as a scare tactic.

In fact, I’d like to see a bill that scales back the debt limit incrementally over the next 5 years, calls for a balanced budget, a permanent reduction of tax rates, and the cutting of all discretionary spending by a minimum of 20%. Leave entitlements such as social security, medicare alone FOR NOW. It would get through the House, and perhaps the Senate should the GOP twist enough arms. Obama would veto it, but that makes him own the consequences.
