The U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have approved legislation to extend the nation’s borrowing limit “cleanly” through March 15, 2015. In the short-term -- that is, after the president signs the bill into law -- this will allow the government to continuing paying its bills, thus avoiding another protracted and unnecessary government shutdown. Good news, right? Hardly.


Say what Reid?

Sorry Harry.

Raising the so called 'clean' debt ceiling hike can't get any more INSANE.

But hey folk let's listen to what Harry said some time ago. In the way back machine:



Come on Harry explain it to us how raising the debt is 'sane'.

Especially after that so called 'argument'.

Yo Harry the senility sitting in or is it just a bad case of cognitive dissonance?

Come now Neo, It's only sane if one agrees blindly to anything they say.

It's about as sane as you "have to pass it to know whats in it."

Only an idiot would believe increasing the amount of negative money equals more money. Thats like cutting the top off of a blanket, sewing it to the bottom, and calling it a longer blanket

How do you know when you are screwed...........When you keep borrowing money you have no way of paying back and consider it the sane thing to do.



Up is down.....left is right.......When the dollar bubble bursts it will be epic. I wonder when leaders in other countries are going to figure this scam out. Are they really this stupid.




The dollar and everyone who uses it is screwed. It will be worthless and these scumbags will give us pennies on the dollar. They are hoping it will be a gradual decline but at some point it will reach the tipping point.....Next week......A year from now.......2 years at the most.

It was only passed because of speaker Boehner's closet membership with Obama and Reid. He says one thing for the Republicans but then votes yea for whatever Obama and Reid ask him. (a lot).
The deal was cooked up between them beforehand, and it is pretty funny that Reid is saying comments like this as if trying to hide his semi-partnership with the speaker.

Perhaps the Speaker is crazy like a fox. It has been well demonstrated that the Rs are not going to win any fight that holds the debt limit hostage. So, perhaps the strategy is ok Ds, election is a coming and we will let you explain to your voters why you voted for the increase. No drama just the results of the vote. Most Rs voted against it. Just a thought.

That was bloody genius.

Best quote I've heard in a long while.

Sanity would be having a working budget that pays down the debt with out adding to it.

Instead this madness is burning down our childrens future.

Borrowing more money to pay more money to borrow more money next year.

These elected officals are idiots and the whole system is broken. Time to fire all of them and start over...

Rinse but NO repeat...

Harry, Harry, Harry, how would a progressive liberal/socialist have a clue what insanity is when that is your state of mind 24/7.

You have been licking way to much Obama boot polish.

I have to laugh at the way the corruption call politicians this days in Washington are rewording the way they speak to make the people think that everything is ok or even a different way of doing business.

Borrowing is borrowing and always has been considered a "dirty thing" but now we most call it "clean", when it comes to raising the debt ceiling, incredible.

Wow just another reason to consider the entire lot mentally ill if you
ask me, its almost like they just cant come to term with reality......

This is going to be so much worse than it had to be if they had just
allowed us to have the real collapse that was due in 2008.... what
a nightmare of a situation, i just cannot understand how anyone
actually believes this rubbish they are spewing.

Borrowing with no plan to pay it back, yeah that's sure a responsible
way of doing things.
