I was totally unaware of that provision. I listen to Rush, who’s usually pretty good about informing us of such things. If McConnell really did this, he is a traitor. How sick can these DC pols get?
Google National Debt, and then click on their references, and you will find the details of that horrible Bipartisan Cave In.
Just ask yourself: Why did over 70 % of all divisions of political loyalty in our total population oppose the recent Debt Ceiling on Obama Spending? The answer is that the MSM did not cover those details. The MSM cares only about large headlines, not the gritty little facts.
I will leave the “why” to the FR sleuths. Right now I am interested in the “what.” The “ why “ always comes out last, thanks in no small part to the sorry values of the MSM.
What I see now is a Madoff-style of fear-spending. Obama knows that he is going to get caught and blamed for having debt, which is the opposite of money. In a panic he grabs more money, creates more debt which will require more money, etc. until he is finally impeached.
Both Obama and Madoff had the same idea: If I just spend a little more money, everything will work out, everyone will be happy and I once again will be a hero.
Obama is incapable of perceiving reality. He cannot be reasoned with. It is to his benefit, and certainly to the financial health of America, that Obama be impeached as soon as possible.
Being President of the United States of America is virtually impossible for incompetent men, such as Obama.

It could well be a sickness. I’ve noticed that after two terms in office, Senators realize that they have been rendered incapable of making a living in the world of business, hard work or investing in worthwhile projects.
I’ve also noticed that they are increasingly sensitive to the negative tabloid words of the Main Stream Media.
They winch and shrivel when these journalists, who have NEVER voted for a Republican anything in their sorry lives ask “ the tough questions.”
My “tough “ question is very simple, “ Senator, when are you going 1.) ignore the MSM, and 2.) start to do your Constitutionally-instructed Job? “ Answer in any order that you choose to.
