When has the Kenyan ever worried about something needing to be “lawful”? That boy plays on his own playing field and he makes up the rules as he goes along.

“Urge Pres__ent Without ID Obama To Consider “Any Lawful Steps” To Avoid Default”

How about a $17 Trilion Dollar Coin with ZimbabweBama on the front?

What a farce. The US Gov’t has more than enough income to pay interest on its debts - and by law, payment of legal debts comes first.

In sum, the US will not default, but it WILL need to make ver hard choices on all spending, particularly on Soc. Sec. and Medicare

So, we have the Senate telling the executive to bypass the House of Representatives?

The Senate weasels should be asking him to abdicate from his oval throne room which he has occupied illegally for over four years now!

Instead they plead with the illegal rat to behave peaceably and do the right thing. The right thing would be to leave him with a lugar on his desktop.

I would like to see the Senate Democrats take a “lawful step” toward avoiding default. Maybe something like PASSING A BALANCED BUDGET. You know, the sort of thing that’s in their Constitutional job description.

As you know, increasing the debt limit does not authorize new spending

Zero is spending without Congressional authority if he borrows more than the ceiling is set for. Way too many programs are currently on autopilot and do NOT require Congress to appropriate funds on an annual basis, so Obozo just keeps spending.

I sincerely wish that the GOP would send a letter like this to Zero and state NO debt ceiling increase until the Senate passes a budget - not even a debate.

Borrowing is not a power of the president - it’s reserved for the Congress.

But they’re going to do it anyway so....

Republican leaders are threatening to bring on an economic catastrophe unless Democrats make deep cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

Deep cuts to SS and Medicare? Is that even true?

Soooo...Why are we not seeing Bhoner and McConnel on the steps of the Supreme Court demanding an injunction to preempt the usurpation of Constitutional authority?

Nevermind. I already know the answer.

Senate leaders made clear their willingness to pursue balanced approach to cutting spending and reducing our deficit, but reiterated their insistence that any approach be a balanced between smart cuts and revenues from the wealthiest Americans.

Leaving aside, for the moment, the (quite obvious) class warfare this evokes, it should be evident that the left's idea of "smart" cuts would necessarily exclude entitlements, which are the primary drivers of the annual deficit...

Anyone wondering why Obama takes it up[on himself to make his own rules??

Because he knows he is backed by these traitors, Treasonous Democrats who implore him to ignore the laws of this country and become the dictator he is.

We dont need to get rid of Obama we need to get rid of every Democrat traitor on the Hill and half the Republicans.

It’s hard to imagine a Congress that is not only willing to destroy itself ,but is anxious.

Simply put, this communist administration wants its credit card renewed even after spending 16 trillion dollars MORE than America takes in!

YOU try this and see if you are not in jail!

DO NOT RAISE THE DEBT LIMIT! DO NOT RAISE THE DEBT LIMIT!!! DO NOT RENEW THE CREDIT CARD OF THE COMMUNIST OBAMA! Enough said!
