It's interesting that Republicans feel the budget deficit is so dangerous that its worth plunging the world into catastrophe over, but not dangerous enough to consider raising any additional revenue...

raising the debt ceiling doesn't create new deficits.

We have enough revenue, how about you convince your dear leader to quit his spending spree instead.

Every time you ask a question like this, just replace the word collect with spend and then answer it yourself.

can you, or anyone else explain why the debt is a problem? other than just pointing out how big of a number it is?

legitimately curious here. after all, credit card companies love it when you go into massive debt and pay your bills on time.

They love minimum required payments on time. They don't so much like higher payments, and like full payments early even less.

Unfortunately no, they won't. Which is too bad because it would be one of the best things that could happen to the country right now.

Revolt doesn't happen when people expect horrible treatment. Revolt happens when people don't get the treatment they think they are supposed to be getting.

It is interesting, when you look at the reasons behind it. To ignore the dangers of our 16 trillion and rising dollar deficit, would be like riding an air plane into the sky and thinking you will never run out of gas. Our economy is running on E, and Liberals want keep moving "forward".

After looking at my last paycheck I have come to the understanding that the government gets plenty of money from me. I have no desire to give wellfare recipiants any more hands outs. I have a familly of my own to feed. I don't relish the idea that libs want to increase the taxes, and I find it depressing that there are so many spineless gop, who caved during the budget crisis... but the bullies on the left continue to push the repubs around by calling them "hostage takers".

Normal Americans have one simple request... reduce spending and balanced budget. You don't need to raise a debt limit to do this, nor do you need to raise taxes. Why can't liberals make this happen? Why can't they hold themselves accountable for a balanced budget? After being taxed 1/4 of my earnings, why can't the left just agree that spending is a problem?
