Gee what a surprise... NOT.

GOP, White House Talk Deal on Debt

GOP leaders and the White House are discussing a deal that would enact strict deficit targets and some spending cuts to win Republican votes for lifting the ceiling on how much the federal government can borrow.

The deal would defer contentious decisions about Medicare, Medicaid and taxes until after the 2012 elections. If such an agreement were reached, it would allow both sides to assure financial markets and the public of their commitment to reducing the deficit and then use next year's campaign to lay out their competing visions for the future of major government programs.

Yet again it would ``push back`` cuts to after the 2012 elections... and when they reach after the 2012 elections, then it'll be something else and something else and something else that ``forces them to act on more urgent issues``... bottom line : you'll never get those cuts.

And if you do the maths, by the time they reach the ``time to make cuts``... it'll be late 2012, early 2013 and by then, the debt will be almost $16 trillion...

One of these days, the bond market is gonna force the USA, just like Greece, to get their house in order, and it won't be pretty.... NOT AT ALL... since nobody can bailout the US.

Pass the buck, toe the line... pass the buck, toe the line...

any gop who votes to raise the debt ceiling will forever earn

my wrath and my contempt for an eternity.

so basically its bribery the left is bribing the right to get what they want.

and the right is taking the bait hook line and sinker.

what happened to the gop when every single one stood locked step in opposing obama care.

wheres my pitchfork?
