Why do you think it has to be done at once?


because for over 40 years the question of getting the debt under control was always:

we'll start on it next year - we have inflation to tackle
we'll start on it next year - we have fix social security
we'll start on it next year - we have a war to fight
we'll start on it next year - we have an economic problem now

Next year never comes, and it is apparent that it never will unless someone trips a circuit breaker to interrupt the cycle.

It'll be done at once.

Because nothing will be done about it, period, and reality will do it for us.

Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy."

While technically correct, it does allow the debt to increase. Apparently Obama has evolved in his perspective of the debt ceiling since he has been President. LINK

Further proof that this debt ceiling thing is just a sideshow.

The real show is when they vote on the spending, and that's what really matters.

Which is why so many try to earn their "defit hawk" stripes on issues like the debt ceiling...when it doesn't really matter.

When it does matter (and both public and private sector jobs are potentially being lost b/c of budget cuts) these hawks are nowhere to be found.

Of course this would drastically lower confidence in the U.S. government
Do you think constantly incurring ever-increasing amounts of debt, while not even having the fiduciary responsibility to successfully pass a budget in five years is "confidence-building"?

Good grief. If I had a customer taking on debt like the US government, they'd be on COD or Net 15.

No, I mean signing contracts (many of which are with private contractors) and deciding to cancel them. What will the business climate be like then?
Unchanged. You act as if all commerce initiates from he government. All Contracts have cancellation clauses for a reason. And there is a reason you don't book a contract to cash.

Obama thinks we are all stupid.

Why even raise the debt ceiling if you do not plan to increase debt?

Basic logic obviously doesn't apply in this case. As the article aptly points out, just because we have raised the debt ceiling followed by exceeding it 100 times doesn't mean it will happen this time. Disclaimer: historic returns are no guarantee of future performance.

That is a backwards train of thought. We don't have money, spend it anyway, get in debt, now we need to raise the ceiling again because we owe almost all the debt to ourselves.


Obama is a piece of shite. Simple as that.

Has anyone else gotten a cheery letter from a credit card company saying how they've raised your credit limit to $10k, and then called them back to say "Nope, put it back to $2k because I don't want the liability for identity theft?"
