    Why not just vote yes on this clean bill and raise the debt limit?

    If they expect all the Dems to vote NO, why not turn the tables on them and vote yes, raise the debt limit, and move the fuck on!

    The debt limit has to do with paying bills we are already obligated to pay. Just because most of the electorate misunderstands that, we shouldn't go into default as a result of that ignorance.

    The educator in chief needs to address the American people and explain once and for all that the United States government is NOT like a family household budget, and we should stop trying to act like it is.

    We need jobs in this country and a return to a normal state -- not this constant, frantic, ginned-up controversy after ginned-up controversy that keeps us all running in place and never getting anything done.

    Someone explain why the Dems shouldn't all vote yes and move on like grown ups instead of continuing to play these childish games of one-upsmanship.
