The Republicans hand Barack Obama a credit card with no limit.
That’s the fruit of two weeks of phony posturing.
any idiot that voted for this latest monstrosity of a bill is an idiot , and is a traitor against freedom that must be unelected

(IRS rigged election for Obama and democrats by shutting down tea party)
How do you go from a bargaining position where you say “we’ll give you a debt ceiling increase if you give me x in return” to “forget x you can increase the debt ceiling anytime you want”.
Was it the $2 billion pork for McConnell?
The hits just keep on coming.

he Constitution grants the power to "borrow on the credit of the United States" solely to Congress. That means it's Unconstitutional for the Treasury to borrow any funds not explicitly approved by Congress. It also means the US has no Constitutional obligation or authority to repay any funds "borrowed" without Congressional approval. Potential lenders should fully understand that.

(Fact Is: GOPe want ObamaCare.)
The plan includes a proposal offered by McConnell in the 2011 debt ceiling crisis
This is 100% McConnell the Whore. It makes the House totally irrelevant in the debt ceiling issue.
What difference does it make?
This whole debt limit thing was a scam from the get-go.
What the hell good is a limit that is raised every time they get close to it?
In fact, they’re already way beyond it, since the official debt numbers haven’t changed for something like 6 months, which is a flat out lie.
FUBO, FUHR, FUJB, FUMMcC, and all the rest of their crooked cronies.

The US Congress supports al Qaeda and Communism
rather than the US Constitution and the American People.
McConnell is a traitor, pure and simple.

At this point I say just let them keep raisig the debt ceiling until finally we crash. There is no way to stop the train now its going down the tracks too fast.
There is a reason Chase is going to stop allowing clients to wire money out of the country and limit business cash activity to $50,000 per month. Most likely its to prepare for currentcy controls or bank closings.
I say forward to the crash. We have to eat up all that survival food sometime.
