    a clean debt limit bill is what Obama originally wanted.  Now he's claiming that if the budget isn't addressed with savings/revenue in the bill our rating is in danger.

    Is that true, or don't we want to lose the arm twisting power of the debt ceiling in negotiations?

    Personally, I'd like to see a clean, normal, administrative debt ceiling bill like every other president ever had.  I don't for a minute believe that spending cuts are going to do anything but hurt the economy,  which will not be helpful come election day.

    Follow the debt ceiling bill with a revenue only (aimed at corporate subsidies/ the wealthy) temporary bill that specifically targets job generation and let the Republicans argue against a jobs bill.

    Which is what I'd do if I were Queen of the Universe.
