'John Boner' will be flushed down the political commode soon and become a 'trivia' question!

Sold out again to the Tea Party traitors of American Government. I'd 'cry' for him....but, hey, he 'cries' for himself....(constantly).

Take a cue Barry da Bankrupter and DELAY it another year. I think when the new costs hit everybody in an ELECTION YEAR, they will be more willing for a REGIME CHANGE.

The only reason Barry delayed in one year was to get away from the 2014 midterm election backlash on DEMS!!

"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," Obama said.

"Instead of reducing the deficit, as some people claimed, the fiscal policies of this administration and its allies in Congress will add more than $600 million in debt for each of the next five years," he said, adding,"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."

Hoopie posts, "This type of procedure being led by the conservatives has not been done before, not in 237 years of American history and that is a fact."

From Fact Check,The Pinocchio Test Clearly, Obama’s sweeping statement does not stand up to scrutiny, even with his caveat. Time and again, lawmakers have used the “must-pass” nature of the debt limit to force changes in unrelated laws. Often, the effort fails — as the GOP drive to repeal Obamacare almost certainly will. But Kowalcky and LeLoup speculate that one reason why Congress has not eliminated the debt limit, despite the political problems it poses, is because lawmakers enjoy the leverage it provides against the executive branch."

Four Pinocchios!!

Ragnar.. you have explained the current average American under the age of 60. It's not just health care. Most want everything for "free" the last presidential election proved this.

The reality is that spoiled, lazy, overentitled, self-centered, arrogant Americans expect unlimited health care for very limited prices.

You cannot have limited costs with unlimited benefits and expect to have a sustainable system.

I am sick at what our country has become. F-----G entitlement mentality.

I wish that every doctor would go on strike for one year and all drug companies would abandon the market. Let the American people fend for themselves, the spoiled children that they are.

Someone please point me to the section of the Constitution that grants free health care to citizens?

Or maybe you can tell me how a transaction happens? Buyer and seller? Do both have to agree on a price or does the buyer have a right to dictate, by law, what he will pay to the seller?

Bottom line: you do not have a legal or moral right to free or subsidized health care.

You do not have a right to force people to give you what you want at a price that you both do not agree on.

If you DO believe this, please post your home address and the current appraised value of your home. Let's use $150,000. Now, I am going to come over and offer you $15,000. What? You don't want to sell it for that? Why, you are greedy and selfish and you want people to be homeless, don't you? You hate people and don't want them to have housing.

Do you see how ridiculous the health care debate is?

"Nobody is going to say we're not starting on October 1," says Joel Ario, who previously oversaw health exchanges at HHS, "but in some situations, you may see a redefinition of what 'start' means."

In other news, Minority Leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi had a wedding to attend today:

Billionaire investor George Soros, 83, will marry 42-year-old Tamiko Bolton today, followed by a huge party at his Caramoor Estate in Bedford, with 500 guests. We’re told the couple will say their vows in front of a select group of friends and family before they celebrate with hundreds from 4:30 p.m. onward. Those expected include World Bank president Jim Yong Kim and Toomas Hendrik Ilves, president of Estonia; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, president of Liberia; and Edi Rama, prime minister of Albania. Also there will be Paul Tudor Jones II and Rep. Nancy Pelosi. Festivities started Friday night with a dinner at Le Bernardin, followed by cocktails with a few hundred guests at MoMA. Soros and Bolton, a health care consultant, will exchange vows in a small ceremony on Saturday morning at the Bedford, New York estate, which Soros bought in 2003 from “Jurassic Park” author Michael Crichton.

WVpoopie, without a BUDGET, technically the country is not allowed to spend a dime.

Since Obama has not submitted a budget in 56 months, technically the government should have been shut 9 months after he was in office.

Obama uses the US Constitution for toilet paper daily.

Liberals love the poor so much they're creating them by the millions!! This admin has been great for Wall St as the expense of Main St. Ranting about "right wing extremist" a few hundred times a post does not change the fact that Obama's policies are failing!

But as usual, “But BUUUUSH!!!” is the pathetic excuse for FIVE YEARS of Obama failures.

Bull. Congress has repealed numerous Bills, and has amended countless bills. Talking points and lies are all you have, Progressive parrot.

hoopie “Pres Obama doesn't appropriate money, Congress does.”

Your children’s $85 BILLION per month Obama’s crony FED Chairman Bernanke is wasting to prop up the failing Obama economy is NOT appropriations, hoopie. Nice try passing the Obamabucks, though.

hoopie “The same can be asked as to why Pres Bush saddled America with over one trillion in debt on a war that was based on fiction.”

You mean the war Hillary “Butcher of Benghazi” Clinton, John “Winter Soldier” Kerry, and Jokin’ Joe “Clean Articulate” Biden AUTHORIZED? President Bush didn’t authorize the Iraq War, hoopie. A bipartisan Congress did. Including YOUR Democrit VP and Sec of State.

Troll, Pres Obama doesn't appropriate money, Congress does. Pres Obama can ask, recommend, beg, whatever for money from Congress but until they approve there is no spending. The same can be asked as to why Pres Bush saddled America with over one trillion in debt on a war that was based on fiction. But as usual, conservatives want to pretend Bush never happened. Everyone knows that if the gov't is shut down, no matter who does it, could have a crippling affect on not only America's economy but the world economy. This type of procedure being led by the conservatives has not been done before, not in 237 years of American history and that is a fact. The conservatives have failed to repeal/defund the ACA so now they are trying a procedure that their own leaders say will fail and cause great distress to the economy. In time we will see how Americans respond to this new law. 30 million Americans will now have affordable coverage and from where I sit, that is a good thing for Americans. Peace

wvhoopie “Why would any legislator play games with the economy?”

Why would your Borrower in Chief dump $85 BILLION in new debt on the backs of our children every month? Why would your Debtor in Chief rack up more debt in one term than all the other Presidents in history? Why would your Choomer in Chief want to destroy the best health care system in the world at a cost of $6.2 TRILLION in new debt for our children to repay?

Why would an Obama supporter, responsible for helping elect the biggest debtor President in history, whine about playing games with the economy?

Hope and Change is not an economic policy.

Republican leadership says this won't work, so why are they doing this? Why would any legislator play games with the economy? I believe the conservatives are very good at making a lot of noise but they accomplish very little. That is now the mantra of the right. Noisy but do nothing. This too will pass soon. We can all predict how American will respond to the ACA but the true barometer will be about six months from now when 30 million more Americans have health care and many will be receiving subsidies lowering their costs substantially. Then we will know for sure. Let the haters spout off and point fingers and predict the future. Time will surely tell us for sure.

Republicans are the MAJORITY in the House, which represents the nation by population. So of course we’re doing a little better than 1%. And elections matter, remember? LOL

I’m sure that’s shocking to you, Goosy. Because you and the rest of the hair on fire left wing extremist domestic terrorists were always so respectful to “lilbush.” LOL

The President is the President of Dems, Repubs, Indies and others. The NR didnt write the "Dem President", the NRs intent was to disrespect the Prez.

Ya know just like the far right extremists disrespect the American people and especially the poor.

CNN reported last night that Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, a Republican supporter of the bill, that cuts $40 million from food stamps, received a daily meal allowance of $127.41, or 91 times the average daily food-stamp benefit. Lucas is also notable as a recipient of the agriculture subsidies his committee doles out: He and his wife have collected more than $40,000 worth. Whats next, take away health care from 10million....oh, wait....

Keep up the great work. We know the repubs will always get at least 1% of the votes.

Gooseman - you just equated labeling a Democrat as "liberal" to labeling a Republican as an "extremist" or an "anarchist." I'm sure the president, and proud liberals in general, would find that pretty insulting. Who's side are you on anyway? LOL

Most voters still see less government spending as good for the economy.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters now think the government should cut spending in reaction to the nation’s economic problems.

And we GET??? MO SPENDING MO DEBT!

Rasmussen:

"But 58% favor a federal budget that cuts spending, while only 16% prefer one that increases spending. Twenty-one percent (21%) support a budget that keeps spending levels about the same.

This helps explain why 53% would rather have a partial government shutdown until Democrats and Republicans can agree on what spending to cut. Thirty-seven percent (37%) would prefer instead that Congress avoid a shutdown by authorizing spending at existing levels as the president has proposed.

Goofman is just defecating in the wilderness.
