They should take Obama at his word that he wants a "balanced approach" to deficit reduction and ask for a balanced-budget amendment to the constitution.

Voice of god says:
You say that as if Republicans have ever cared about a balanced budget.

How many more times do we have to go through this down-to-the-wire crisis situation?
It's really getting old.
Try to imagine yourself performing your job in a similar way, how long would you stay employed?
I just hope the voters are taking notes and we can get rid of some of these jokers in the next election.

Ice King says:
How can we expect to get anything done when we have sociopaths like McConnell who says things like his number one goal is to make Obama a one term president and that the debt ceiling is a good hostage to take?

But apparently this is all Obama's fault for being stubborn. He should have caved and only been a one term president or at least give the Republicans everything they want. Those poor "job creators" are such a persecuted group, the least we can do is give them more tax breaks.

W.T. says:
Maybe Obama could follow the example of Bill Clinton and meet the Republicans in the middle, instead of this "my way or the highway", no-compromise approach he's taking?

I predict that their "big" donors will put pressure on them at the first sign of a dip in the market...the credit downgrade will probably happen...the bankers want to make more money lending to the US...

The future of the country? The end of $14,000,000,000,000 national debt?

The Democrats' mantra:
Tax and tax
Spend and spend
Elect and elect

Whereas Republicans' mantra is just:

Spend and spend
Blame Democrats and blame Democrats

The Republicans have become the drama queen party.
Crying on the podium, keeping everyone in suspense right up until the last minute, etc.

I agree! It has become a freak show! I really think they have all gone off the deep end!

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 15, 2013 8:54:52 PM PST
they will save the usa and teh world

NOT spending will not destroy the country
but too much spending will do i t

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 15, 2013 8:55:19 PM PST
only jokers we need to get rid of are the spenders
from both parties

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 15, 2013 8:56:28 PM PST
not raising the debt ceiling will save our credit rating

continued borrowing and spending will sink it fast
followed by higher interest rates
more printing of funny money cause they cant borrow
and then hyperinflation
and total collapse

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 15, 2013 8:57:05 PM PST
nonsense

us biggies have bought put options

we want a collapse to cash in big

then we can ride the next bubble up to make more

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 15, 2013 9:05:28 PM PST
Based on last time, it'll read, "We Surrender."

Poster andthehorseirodeinontoo is the only one here, so far, who realizes that both parties are currently responsible for our crisis situtation. Both Democrats and Republicans are responsible for the mess we're in, past and present...and more than likely future. Both parties love spending, Repubs more concerned with saving (spending cuts) Dems for putting more people back to work. Both want to blame the other. Both parties are drama queens. However I have noticed the Dems acting more dramatic lately.

The reason we had a down-to-the-wire situation was because both parties originally wanted an 'all or nothing' solution without considering the opinions of their opponent. Excessive pride blocked any consideration for the country as a whole and Americans nearly suffered the repercussions as a result. When one party offered a reasonable compromise, the other quickly shot it down. Nothing gets accomplished that way. So the whole 'Republicans are to blame' or 'Democrats are to blame' schtick is not going to help the country move foward, no matter who was or wasn't to blame beforehand.
