The anointed one is not asking, he is DEMANDING the republicans agree to raise the debt ceiling. No negotiations, nothing, Obama is flat “DEMANDING”. A far far cry of his 2006 stance when he was adamant against raising the debt ceiling…Here is what Obama had to say just 6 years ago…
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.” SourceObama hit the nail squarely on the head in his closing sentence, “AMERICANS DESERVE BETTER.” Yes we do Hussein Obama, we deserve better, so much more than you will ever be able to deliver. Your goal is give the “LAZY” a free ride, the illegal immigrant a free place to live and a country that you have stripped of its constitutional rights
Hussein should forever be known as the “FREE CHEESE“ president the president who will take the National Debt to uncharted heights, somewhere in the area $20 TRILLION DOLLARS. When you leave, if you leave, the country will lay ruins, with no hope of recovery for hundreds of years. That will be your legacy. Something I am sure you will be quite proud of.
Do you have any idea what is going to happen? The the debt ceiling, with or without the consent of congress will be raised. The liberal democrats are advising the anointed one to go ahead with raising the debt ceiling by use of Obama’s favorite tool, the Executive Order. Obama uses the EO as it is to rule the United States. I also believe that Obama will allow the Country to enter into default, step shrug his shoulders and blame the Republican Party.
This action will cause the following, delayed social security payments, Department of Homeland Security agents not being paid, United States Customs and Border Protection Agents, not being paid, mortgages, bank payments not being met when due, and most importantly, the United States of America entering into default for the first time in our nations history. The borders will be protected by agents who will not be paid on time, this tells you some much about a man who claims to care about the United States. A man who refuses to negotiate with anyone, it is either his way or the highway.
Here is the Democratic take on the looming debt crisis…
Senate Democratic leaders urged President Barack Obama to take any steps he can to pay U.S. financial obligations if congressional Republicans don’t support a debt-limit increase that Democrats deem acceptable.
In a letter to Obama yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and three other top Democrats said Obama “must be willing to take any lawful steps to ensure that America does not break its promises and trigger a global economic crisis — without congressional approval, if necessary.”
The Democrats’ letter sharpens the dispute with Republicans over the borrowing limit, which the U.S. hit at year’s end. Amid Republican opposition to raising the debt ceiling without spending cuts, some Democrats have proposed invoking the Constitution’s 14th amendment and minting a platinum coin with a face value of $1 trillion to pay government bills.
House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, both Republicans, have said they will seek substantial spending cuts in exchange for any debt-ceiling increase. Boehner has said cuts must match or exceed the amount the ceiling is raised.
McConnell said yesterday that Democrats “are falling all over themselves in an effort to do anything they can to get around the law — and to avoid taking any responsibility for Washington’s out-of-control spending.”
In a statement, McConnell added that “avoiding this problem will only make it worse, which is why many of us view the upcoming debt-limit debate as a perfect opportunity to face up to Washington’s spending.”
‘Extraordinary’ MeasuresThe U.S. reached the statutory borrowing limit on Dec. 31, and the Treasury Department is using what it terms “extraordinary” measures to finance the government. The Congressional Budget Office estimates those steps will be exhausted by mid-February.
Obama must act on his own to prevent default “in the event that Republicans make good on their threat by failing to act, or by moving unilaterally to pass a debt-limit extension only as part of unbalanced or unreasonable legislation,” wrote Reid of Nevada and Senators Richard Durbin of Illinois, Charles Schumer of New York and Patty Murray of Washington.
White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Jan. 9 that the administration was “not going to negotiate” on the debt limit. He said Obama won’t send aides or Vice President Joe Biden to Capitol Hill to negotiate with Republicans over their demand for at least a dollar in spending cuts for every dollar that the debt ceiling is raised.
14th AmendmentObama also won’t summon congressional leaders to the White House to discuss a debt-ceiling deal, Carney said. (This statement speaks volume)
Carney repeated that the administration doesn’t think the president has the power to unilaterally raise the limit under the Constitution’s 14th Amendment, an argument advanced by some congressional Democrats, including House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.
“You must make clear that you will never allow our nation’s economy and reputation to be held hostage,” Reid and his colleagues said in their letter. “We support your view that an extension of the debt limit is not something for which Democrats should have to negotiate.” Source
You can see how ignorant Harry Reid is, just by his very statement. Reid in my opinion has dementia, if not his ability to comprehend is severely limited by some other form of mental illness….STUPIDITY.
We the people had I opportunity to take control of our country again……but we failed to do so, we have no one to blame but the people that put this puppet into office in the first place, the progressive RADICAL LIBERALS.
I am not sure if any of you remember this incident, I do and I will share it with you again, this short clip and Obama’s open mic just goes shows you who Hussein Obama really is…Just sayin, that’s all.
