  •  If we lose (0+ / 0-)

    we're pretty much fucked. This batch of Republicans is worse than almost any in history. Look for the debt ceiling to fail to be raised, and the national (and global) markets to fall into chaos. I'm completely serious, and I'm not generally one for conspiracy theories or things like that.

    •  We certainly won't make any progress (3+ / 0-)

      on the urgent challenges facing our country, from global warming to health care costs to education to infrastructure to the debt to...you name it.

      President has a veto pen...it will not be to apocolypse

      •  The president can block (0+ / 0-)

        But he can't pass. The debt ceiling has to be passed, not blocked. And if it's not, it's going to be an epic clusterfuck. It's generally an uncontroversial thing to do, but nothing is uncontroversial with teabaggers and their media allies.
