HEY! I got an AWESOME IDEA! How about we do these fights as part of FY budget bills that must be passed by September 30th of each year!

... I’m waiting, RATS... Where are those budgets....

Why should the GOP take advice from a Marxist of any stripe? Much less a Muslim Marxist?

“Don’t use debt ceiling as leverage in shutdown standoff”

Or you’ll do what?

Call us anarchists?

Enact a health bill that destroys the economy?

Fail to pass a budget?

Expand the national debt?

I hope it’s on!

The statist (both parties are infected) reasoning on this issue would be like you or me demanding our credit card company increase our credit limit so we can make our payments and avoid bankruptcy.

How friggin stupid is that?

Just as an individual in that situation is de facto bankrupt without a drastic change in lifestyle and spending habits, so is our Federal Government!

Like the old oil change commercial when the mechanic says “You can pay me now or pay me later”, it already is “later”.

More Dems being “helpful” in ordering the Republicans around. “Don’t do this, don’t do that, capitulate, surrender, Dorothy!” It’s just pathetic enough to be funny.

Hey Rep Ellison, How about your getting you Muzzie buddies to stop raping little girls and boys. Plus that beheading, eating people and all that other disgusting things you and brethren do.

Since RATs now routinely call Tea Party members terrorists, I’ll take this opportunity to call Ellison a terrorist. Ass, up Keith! Time for prayers!

October 17th the money runs out. Of course DemoRats don’t mind running a tab up that they know they’re not on the hook for if they can get someene else to pay it. Pay your bills, Rats, and stop making us pay your tab.

He’s a Muzzie, so you know that the Koran allows him to lie to the rest of us.

Publius911 to Ellison : Sorry, the mentally-handicapped Congressional Caucus isn't authorized to dispense unsolicited advice.
