    expenditure is approved by Congress that the debt ceiling will be automatically adjusted to accommodate the change. Voila! End of drama and hostage taking and ransom demands by Republicans ( or anyone else in the future)

    The Republicans don't seem to understand that they are both boring and infuriating us simultaneously by forcing us to relive these crises month after freaking month like we're in some horrible Groundhog Day remake where we're all waiting to see if Grover will see his shadow or if we'll have 3 more months of fruitless pontificating and lecturing by the people who want to destroy the economy even more by reducing spending in the middle of a recession, whew! end of run on sentence prompted by relentless Republican nitwittery and chicanery which serves no public purpose or legitimate goal at all, instead dismantling the functions of government and enriching themselves and their connected friends who all want to be on the privatization gravy train and blow up the safety nets in order to enact their vision of a Dystopian Darwinian Ann Randian future peopled only with authoritarian, self-involved, non-empathetic, cruel, sociopaths like themselves.
