Mark Levin was talking about this...if true, this is the ultimate betrayal by Mitch McConnell...

Essentially, this is unlimited spending by Obamugabe. He will never have to ask for a debt ceiling increase.

Ever.

Mitch, you have betrayed the Republic if this is true.

Money still has to be appropriated by congress before it can be spent. Borrowing and spending are two different things.

Yet more power to Obastard. McConnell should fall on his sword.

Unfortunately, that is nothing less than a license to print money ... unlimited

The little piggies screw
the US Constitution AND the American public,
but fear not:
al Qaeda will be armed.
Narcoterrorists will be armed.
The border will be left open.
Congress will get kickbacks every way possible,
and not be under the “laws” they pass.

Americans have NEVER hated their corrupt tyrannical
government as much as now.

This is classic accountability avoidance by Congress. Debt going up? Nothing we can do about it.

If there isn't an appropriation, they can't spend. The next round up automatic sequester cuts of 109B is coming up in January.

Help me out: If Congress passes a debt limit bill, Obama vetoes it, and Congress can't override it, then the debt limit automatically goes up?

What kind of idiotic legislation is that?

From my reading of the Politico article it is one-time-only for raising the debt ceiling until feb 7th without the house/ senate making additional vote. It reads to me a one time only thing to quicken things up

It’s a set up to do a 1 year deal in Jan/Feb to get the kenyan and McConnell through the midterms. We are being had obviously.

No, JRandom, if this story IS true (and I don’t put all my stock in Politico) then the ONLY way for the debt ceiling to be stopped is for 2/3 of the Congress to say NO in February.

If 2/3 does not say NO, the AssClown gets to continue borrowing.
