Would someone from the progressive side of the spectrum please give me one good logical, common sense argument for why the Senate should not pass this right away and have it on the President’s desk for his signature immediately.
To use the President’s well-worn car metaphor. The President and the Democrats in Congress are Thelma and Louise, hands clasped, gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes, accelerator mashed to the floor and speeding over the cliff. Unfortunately, the American people are stuck in the back seat.
It is really very simple. We can not continue to borrow 40 cents of every dollar we spend. Raising the debt ceiling and giving the Feds more money to play with through expanded credit limits and more revenue is like giving a crack addict a suitcase full of his favorite drug, irresponsible in the extreme.
STOP THE MADNESS NOW. CUT SPENDING NOW AND NO NEW MONEY FOR DC.
Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has more background on the poll. It appears to play well across almost all demographics and regions. Not that it will matter to the Senate or the Administration. We’re apparently too stupid to really understand.
