    Obama is using the debt-crisis to shock-doctrine the Joint Select Commission on Deficit Reducton (a.k.a. Catfood-II) onto us.  The only way to stop it is to join with the Tea Party in doing so.  

    You've given us an excellent set of options, showing that there is no crisis to be schocked by.  

    Great work!

      I agree progs should be combining with the TP at this point to defeat a debt ceiling extension and put the problem in Obama's lap. Then whatever option he selects need not lead to cutting entitlements.

      I hope he'll get some fear of the new economic numbers showing us on the verge of another recession and realize that austerity won't work.
