Does anyone know what the ceiling was at the time and what it was increased to?
Democrats never want you to remember the position they took yesterday. The only reason we’re raising the debt limit now is Obama’s spending.
And only two Republicans voted against raising it. That’s pretty sad.
Very interesting news. Is it on CNN, MSNBC, or the networks?
And I bet in 06, when Burns and Ensign did that, they were called RINO’s for not supporting Bush and the Republican agenda of the time.
That the largest debt increases under Bush, came under Pelousi and Reid. Now the Pubbies are in charge, of only one house, and are "trying" to reel in spending.
If they were really TRYING to reel in spending, they'd cut Obama off at the knees.
Zero is trying to scare people with the loss of SS checks if a debt ceiling isn't passed.
SS is paid from FICA taxes and not the general fund. Pointing this out would put the ball in Zero's court. Second, when short on money to pay bills, a person makes choices who gets paid what, and WHO GETS LEFT OUT.
Make the SS scare tactics about Obama paying bank and corporation bills first, but leaving SS and medicare people out.
It went from $8.2 trillion to $9 trillion

“Congress Sets New Federal Debt Limit: $9 Trillion”
With Pelosi still in charge, anyone who does not follow their National Socialist agenda is toast. If anyone dares to speak out-of-turn, their pets will end up dead on their front lawn. Just ask Clinton’s ex-friends. Just as the democrats left Reagan, the modern day dems have left America.
