Congress will raise the debt ceiling (again...)
Don't these guys get it? What is not to understand about the November 2010 election results? Americans want our debt brought under control by responsible adults, and they elected people to get the job done. And the math is not hard, either. There is one and only one way to turn around the direction of our skyrocketing debt: stop spending money we don't have. And now what are we to expect this week? Another step towards bankruptcy, courtesy of the 112th Congress, when they vote to raise the debt ceiling yet again. This new GOP controlled House bunch thinks that the only way to get things done is to compromise with the scoundrels who got us into this mess in the first place. That is so wrong on so many levels. Compromising with these guys is like compromising with the Taliban: 'so, Mahmoud, you insist we cut off the heads of infidels who reject the teachings of the Prophet. How about this, Mahmoud: we only cut off the arm of an infidel, would that make you happy? Let me know about my proposal, I gotta take something back to my people...' Raising the debt ceiling (again, for the 11th time in the last 10 years) is simply giving in to the wild spending Democrat socialists who think money grows on trees. These Republicans better get with the program and stop the spending, address the outrageous entitlements and the bloated federal government that have been established by our socialist counterparts over the last 75 years. Just like we asked them to do last November.
