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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Though I agree with your sentiment, I think its important to note (like many here at FR point out) That spending comes from congress.

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.

Is there any shred of honesty at all left within the failed Democratic Party ? Obama is a Globalist. He is not a Democrat. Time for democrats to decide whether their party will continue or go the way of the wigs.

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.
