"Democrats have failed us.

Republicans have failed us.

No one is defending for our interests.

We can not remain passive while our future is going up in flames.

It is time for us to stand up for ourselves."

Our debt will always grow. But when Washington wants to raise our borrowing capabilities by 10 million and they only end up raising it to 7 million (just an example) that still counts for something! To complain that it isn;t enough or isn't a cut is childish.

Wow that is one of the most ridiculous statements I ever heard.... IT IS NOT A CUT IT IS AN EXPANSION! Just because it was not expanded as much does not make it anything other then an expansion. Statements like this just goes to show how much the average person really is hoodwinked by double speak from the government!

And Childish???? So you think that it is childish to complain that they just doomed the economy once and for all? Tell me how long do you think you could survive balancing your check book this way? Well guess what neither can government sustain thier finances this way either. You cannot defy the laws of mathematics. This was thier last chance to correct course and they just did more of what got us into this situation in the first place...

We may be able to reduce costs, but costs are always going to be there and if anyone thinks there will come a time when expenditures equal gains, especially without serious tax reform and raises, they are wrong now and will be wrong then.

Wow you should be a politician you'd fit right in....Sigh! What part of you cannot spend more then you take in for long do you not understand? What part of going further into debt to pay existing debt is unsustainable do you not understand?

Not to pick on you but thank you for illustrating why these criminals are able to get away with this fraud for the last 40 years. The majority of people do not understand how things work and are glamoured by government double speak and think this sort of fraud can go on forever...

So, let me get this straight.

Obama proposed the Nation's budget. Congress approved this budget. Both knew far in advance that in order for this budget, that became a law, to be carried out the debt ceiling would have to be raised as this budget would surpass our current borrowing limit at the time within a very short time frame.

So, why was it a big deal now?

Republicans allowed the budget to pass, and Democrats allowed the budget to pass.

Democrats must have been planning to try to raise taxes in order to pay for the budget that was proposed and passed, or they just didn’t think about it…

If Republicans were so against the amount that was set to be spent in the budget, then why did they approve the budget only to demand cuts at a later time frame?

What a bunch of %^& $%$% Mutha %^&&^!!!@#!!!!
