+ Washington - As the debt ceiling crisis spooked global markets and reports surfaced of President Obama's rejection of a bipartisan plan, talk of impeachment is circulating among congressional circles. Source
These collisions between both chambers of Congress and the White House have led to calls for the impeachment of President Obama should the federal government default. Congressman Steve King (R-IA) openly claimed through Twitter that Mr. Obama would be impeached if the nation defaulted on its loan guarantees, Politico reported on Monday.
“The 1st dime of each $1 of revenue services debt. Obama would be impeached if he blocked debt payments. C C & B,” Congressman King tweeted. Source

It's Congress's job to pass a budget not the President. Blaming the president for this is like blaming a farmer for a flood that washes his crops away
blaming the president is the right thing to do. and its the houses job for the money and its the presidents job to sign the bill. congress has no responsibity to get on its knees so a president can have his way.

I'm all for it as long as Boehner and Cantor go too.
Enough is enough, and if I don't see those three faces for the rest of my life it will be too soon. All three have displayed nothing but stubbornness and an inability to do their jobs. Obama has shown to be a weakling and Boehner and Cantor self serving, and uncaring leaders. Begone with all three.
