Why are we trying to rewrite what just happened already? Wait a few years and then try when it may not be so fresh in peoples minds. We know the GOP
and DNC had come to deal long before the vote. We know the Tea Party made a power play and ruined the deal. We know the DNC started gloating in
public about how the GOP has just shot itself in the head before somebody reminded them to shut up. We know the GOP poll numbers dropped lower than
either parties numbers ever have in history. We know that members of the GOP quickly started turning on the Tea Party people. We know the polls
showed the American people wanted a clean vote. We know the DNC armed backed by the polls played it smart and made no new demands and just wanted a
clean vote. We know that was final nail in the coffin and the GOP made the deal hoping they could repair the damage. Obama and the DNC had no
interest in a shut down or default. They much rather the focus would be the regular reports on job growth and the withdrawl from Afganistan. The GOP
had no intrest either as they were desperately trying to rebuild the party afte the last elections beating. However the Tea Party people knowing the
how poorly the were polling and knowing their time in office would not last beyond the next election made a move to beat the DNC and take over the
GOP. It failed in the worst way possible. It will cost the GOP the house, any chance at the senate or the White House in the next election. Obama
and the DNC will no doubt try and take the credit for crushing the GOP but, the fact is it was a self inflicted wound.
Congress has the RIGHT to dictate the Budget.
So pertinent to the thread:
Reagan was confronted with the Democrats not offering ANY BUDGET despite his willingness to compromise, hence his comments about the harm such a
shutdown would cause. This had nothing to do with a Default on the US Debt.
Obama was offered CLEAN BILLS that would fund all parts of the Government except Obamacare which is a reasonable power of the purse of Congress,
because of the harm a shutdown may cause it was even more reasonable.
Instead, Obama sent his goon (Jack Lew) from the Treasury, former COO (Chief operations officer) of CitiGroup (major bank bailed out by the
Government...no conflict of interest here look away...
) to threaten a default on the US Debt despite the constitutional obligation that the
first funded item of the US REVENUE (not even the Budget) must be the DEBT.
It doesn't even matter if a budget is passed or not, the DEBT is funded by the FIRST REVENUE, since the $US takes in per month is equal to the entire
US DEBT interest payment, there is no way a default could happen constitutionally.
Therefore Obama is an unconstitutional lying tyrant.
