    Didn't the war in Iraq end?  You mean to tell me that we ended a war but do not get to reduce defense spending? WTF!

    When we faced the greatest threat (Terror) in our country's history (according to Bush) it was too much to ask our citizens to pay for it. It is way past time.

    •  worth a reminder; all the debt is accounts due (0+ / 0-)

      the whole debt squawk is based on a careful lie; that raising the debt limit green lights more "wasteful" spending.
      It's all for stuff already done. money spent. By CONGRESS.
      Like your electric bill, it is the amount due for services already rendered. If Congress wants to cut the debt limit, they need to cut spending or grow revenue BEFORE the bill comes in.
      This is the very essence of irresponsibility. Spend like drunks, then freak out when the bill comes in, blame somebody else (Ha! The black guy!!), and stomp out without paying.
      These guys suck. plain and simple.

      Class war has consequences, and we are living them.
