Only in the USSA can it be said that going deeper and deeper into debt equals ‘being able to pay your bills’.
“America is one step closer to being able to pay its bills next month.” If American was one step closer to paying their bills, they wouldn’t need to raise the debt ceiling.
This is an absurdity. “paying its bills”? It’s increased its bills with higher interest! Watch how another credit agency decreases our rating… then Barack Obama will go after them for dealing with reality.
In the movie Wall Street the big line was “Greed is good.”
In the Obama White House the big line is “Debt is good.”
It hurts to think that Republicans “caved” on this, but honestly IS THIS THE RIGHT MOVE by Boehner, strategically? This allows the focus on the disaster that is Obamacare to be out in front correct? Creating another shutdown threat would take the focus from that, any concession by Dems would have been next to worthless anyway, and allows the media free rein to ignore any Obamacare disasters and keep the Repubs-shutdown-the-guv meme going.
Should this be our mantra now? Win elections first. Take the Senate, take the Presidency. Then real changes can be made.
