  •  If they want to cut spending (2+ / 0-)

    by failure of raising the debt limit, to "prioritize" the spending, who do they think is supposed to do that?  Congress has already spent the money.  Is Obama supposed to do that?  Does that mean Mr Coburn is ok with Obama deciding what to pay for, and what not to pay for?  Can Obama decrease Defense funding by 50%, because there is a requirement to stop spending more than we have?

    The whole argument is absurd beyond words.

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
