Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) warned Republicans Friday not to seek concessions in exchange for raising the nations debt ceiling.
Murray, fresh off negotiating a two-year budget deal with her House counterpart Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), said Democrats will not negotiate over raising the debt ceiling.
We will not negotiate over whether or not the United States of America should pay its bills, she writes in a letter sent to her Senate colleagues.

And so the stage is set for yet another Boehner cave in.
He probably wet himself upon hearing it.
Here come the lies again. The USA rakes in so much money every month to pay the debt 6 times over.
Republicans never learn. The Charlie Brown party.
This is almost funny it’s so sad. The is the same MFing line every few months. What a joke the GOP is.
She might make me shake if I met her in a dark alley. Other than that, I’d tell her to go F off.....
jimbo, you’ve captured the absolute essence of the situation!
We will not negotiate over whether or not the United States of America should pay its bills,
Translation: the House of Representatives shall have no power of the purse. It’s what the Senate wants or nothing! And we won’t simply spend what we take in either. We will intentionally default!
“Murray warns GOP on debt limit”
Having this 81 IQ bimbo “warning” you is like having a Pomeranian yelping at you.
But it’s probably enough to make Ryan, Boehner, and McConnell crawl under their desks.
Didn’t I read claims here last year that part of the October deal made it difficult for congress to stop the next two increases?
It required a super majority to stop from raising it?
I dont have a link yet.
Sigh. The ones who never learn are us. This is happening because the Republicans want it to happen. They’re not being duped. They’re not taking it in the tail pipe. They’re not caving. They’re getting what the want.
“Oh Lordy Lord, do what she say....do what she say....”
said Democrats will not negotiate over raising the debt ceiling.
In other words:
We have every right to enslave future generations in perpetual debt to pay for our wants and desires today, and don’t you dare try to stop us.
OK, then can we debate over whether the United States should run those bills up in the first place?
It’s like a degenerate gambler arguing how she needs her credit card limit raised so she can pay off her bookie.
We no longer have a debt ceiling. I am surprised Senator Murray did not know that.
Not likely. He never had any intention of fighting. It interferes with his golf.
It doesn’t matter. If they don’t pass one, Obama gets to submit one that takes effect unless both houses override it. That was in the last cave.
In the spirit of bi-partisanship Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) said Democrats will not negotiate over raising the debt ceiling.
Bonehead is a piece of garbage. He is weak and ignorant what conservative Constitutionalism is and what Americans want. He always caves to the communists Democrats.
Caption this photo — Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash), how many active working brain cells do you actually have?
Shut the entire gubamint down,, hard!
THose in power fail to see who has handed them that power.
Let's just say that I'm not holding my breath to witness what a "real fight" looks like.
When Patty Murray left for DC she was as poor as a church mouse.
Now she has more money than God.
Several times she was voted the dumbest member of congress.
Fine. Call them on it.
Why are the Communists even ISSUING this warning. If I am not mistaking, all the power to alter or deny this increase has been removed from anyone until October 1, 2014. Are they planning to play games with these mandatory increases and STILL blame Republicans? We already know the press will lie for them outright, but is this their plan?
Well, true. The Republicans are NOT the Stupid Party.
They are the Complicit Party.
I agree. If they wanted to fight, they could. It’s their perogative, their right as overseer of the power of the purse, being denied them. They don’t care. The commies in Congress are rubbing it in the faces of conservatives with this rhetoric.
Oh, gosh yes. Bonehead already caved, Chinless already caved and Cruz won’t stand in their way, so this debt limit increase has a clear path.
He reminds me of a crude joke about a prospective prostitute being reminded that they need to be paid before they flop onto their back.
He flops over before even being propositioned.
half a trillion in the past 3 months alone
chutzpah and stupid
no way to go through life, Patty
but good for a lifetime career in the US Senate, apparently
We’re not raising the Debt Limit either.
So, there’s NOTHING TO NEGOTIATE!

Excuse me for saying but this big government two party DC ploy to keep increasing the national debt may soon get more attention than the ruling elite are bargained for. American Spring coming to DC May 16, 2014!!! The folks marching on DC that day might consider showing up with a few hot tar carts, a few loads of dried cow dung and pitch forks. Since those in DC won’t listen to the people, maybe showing them a glimpse of what their own future may hold might be a bit more effective.
I never believed that for a second, and I told people at the time they were fools if they did.
Yeah, he’s the guy you see pushing money out the car window.
Bonehead already caved, Chinless already caved and Cruz wont stand in their way, so this debt limit increase has a clear path.
Since the shutdown the GOP leadership have doubled down on their proven loser tip toe to the election strategy.
It’s surrender monkey politics from the beltway GOP. The MSM & Dems whipped them. They simply have no interest in being an engaged opposition party while the kenyan is in the WH.
Remember, the reason we were supposed to accept the complete cave on the shutdown was because the “real fight” was going to be the debt limit.
Yes, it’s the old beltway GOP move the cheese game. I heard Peter Roskam on the radio saying the real good news is now they have regular order and will be able to get stuff done.
Surprising, the Dems don’t need regular order to get what they want. They got their IRS law to legalize their assaults on us in the Ryan-Murray bill yet the GOP was unable to get any Obamacare reporting transparency laws in it.
Why is that? The answer is fix is in. The GOP have no interest in being an engaged opposition party while the kenyan is in the WH. If the GOP plan on taking a powder until 2016 conservatives should do the same to the GOP.
Correct. Plus, I’ve always suspected that, in their “hearts,” they like what the Kenyan is doing. My ruling principle about the GOPe: They don’t want smaller government, they want to be the ones in charge of a larger government.
The republicans can cave and lose the election. They can stand tall and lose the public adoration. Which do you think they’ll do?
Don’t worry Patty that bunch of sniveling, self serving quislings don’t have the combined testosterone to hump a fire hydrant. “Fail” is their battle cry.
