Pelosi vows no help from Dems on debt bill


quote:

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warned Friday that GOP leaders will get no help from Democrats in the effort to raise the debt limit.


quote:

The House minority leader said she's spoken with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on the topic, emphasizing that Democrats agree with President Obama that legislation to hike the nation's $16.7 trillion debt ceiling is non-negotiable. "We've had a number of conversations, and I just say, 'Don't expect us to be helpful when it comes to the debt ceiling, because we don't think that's negotiable,' " Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol Friday.

re: Pelosi vows no help from Dems on debt bill


neither party understands negotiating or compromise but the Dems are the worst. If it ain't there way they won't even consider it. Wonder why the country is a cluster, our politicians are children.

This.

Elections have consequences.

Either the pres/dems in congress make concessions or the consequences take a different form.

re: Pelosi vows no help from Dems on debt bill


...but the republicans are being unreasonable, right?



Democrats have drawn a line. They won't pass a bill that protects the full faith as credit of the US. They've warned that Obama will veto it and risk shut down in the unlikely event it goes trough without meeting their exact demands.

They are doing exactly what the republicans are doing. They are sand bagging and pointing the finger.

If the government shuts down, it's on Obama and every member of congress.

Regardless of what Powerman, Rex, or the other reliable democrat cheer leaders say....their party shares the blame on this.

both sides are to blame. It's tough to meet in the middle when they've both draw their definitive lines so far apart.

re: Pelosi vows no help from Dems on debt bill


What if the Senate needed to pass some sort of routine legislation - and they would only pass the legislation if the House agreed to gun bill restricting the purchase of handguns....then said the House was being obstructionist to passing the routine legislation? That's pretty much what we're looking at here.

Never mind the fact that the "debt ceiling" has nothing to do with cutting future spending...which they won't do. They pick the debt ceiling b/c the can look like they want to cut spending - but don't actually have to do any of the painful cutting.

The media seems think otherwise....as do every single liberal I know and many republicans.

Compromise to liberals is giving Obama exactly what he wants to sign into law.

He's not going to get everything he wants.

This is more like the Senate demanding increased funding for something the house is uncomfortable with.

A functional congress would trade horses and get it done. Give and take would occur under with encouragement from the White House.

Not this congress. Not this president. This goes for almost everything...routine or otherwise.

Agreed. Too many threats, not enough action. It will force people to get off their arse if this were the case.

At some point, (and I think we passed that point about 12 years ago), we have got to stop treating the debt ceiling as "routine legislation."

I don't have a problem at all with the GOP using the debt ceiling as an opportunity to show how out of control Washington spending is. I also admired the hypocrit Obama for making his stand when he was a senator.

So she is effectively saying "We will wait until they pass it to see what is in it." That worked so well for the Democrats on Obamacare that she insists the Republicans adopt the same approach on debt limits.

Why not just cut spending?

Why not pass a balanced budget amendment and term limits?
