Great catch, Drudge!
So when in power, they crush us with no emergency/WarTime raises, but when needing power and our votes or belief in them, they want it raised... We see how it is.
Stock manipulation and welfare strings manipulation.
We are living under a virtual slavery.
That was Bush, this is now. ;)
Which goes to show it’s all political.
Why, what was different then? Oh, right. A Republican was president. They don’t think in “right and wrong”, they think in “democrat or republican”.
Before you know it, they’ll be turning a blind eye and staying mute while Obama starts a war or two without Congressional approval. Oh, wait...
However, the tit-for-tat response is that every Republican voted for it.
Do not tell the republican senators they will say it is a damn lie.
I can’t get that link to work.
This whole thing is a political game. Everything is in dc..Dem bernie madoffs and repub bernie madoffs playing f ing games and a shi#$y media feeding the premise of these scammers... and the taxpayer and the future generations are the slaves.... our next civil war will be about slavery too..amazing... that’s why the tea party is essential. They can divide this country even further and bring more and mor light to the dem and repub slaveholder rulers who will be fighting on the same side against those sick of living and working to feed their wallets and careers.
The ‘Rats were running to the right of the Pubbies on fiscal issues in ‘06, the voters bought it and that’s how they re-took the House.
Thank you very much!!
The difference is that then, the debt was in single-digit trillions and the annual deficits were 1/3 what they are now.
The debt issue was serious then but it is beyond critical now since the shoving of Obamacare, Stimulus, bailouts, TARP, QE 1&2, and huge growth of virtually every socialist program up our keesters.
Grouped By Vote Position
52 Yes+48 No +100
Hypocrisy, thy name is 0bama.
Out if the 48 yays, I count 21 of them gone.
Cause Bush was white. /s
In '06 we didn't have the crisis we have now.
But back then when unemployment was 5% the Dems were all lying and saying we had the worst economy since Herbert Hoover.
So now that we really DO have a terrible economy they want to raise the ceiling? Uh huh.
ping for later.
In almost every case of “Federal debt” or “national security”, majorities of Democrats most of the time have had one operating principle - they’re O.K. under their Presidents and not O.K. when its not their President.
