    (Bipartisan) Debt Ceiling Tweet of the Day

    (Bipartisan) Debt Ceiling Tweet of the Day

    The interesting thing about this now-famous tweet is that the sentiment has widespread bipartisan support, although for different reasons:


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.

    If we can’t win immediately, then let’s just give up!!!

    Sorry. I don’t see it as a victory. Instead, I’m reminded of the briefer back during the Vietnam War who solemnly assured us that we had to destroy the village to save it.

    This thing has more loop holes then a Swiss cheese factory. It’s a mere road bump for the spenders; it addresses nothing that will put us on a sound financial footing and it jacks up the debts to over $16.5 trillion… by the end of the year.

    Declare an “emergency” and all this fiscal restraint stuff goes out the window… and they’ll declare one at the drop of a hat… so whatever any of you do, DON’T DROP YOUR HATS.

    If the young people in this country were even remotely paying attention to what we’re doing to them, they’d be rioting in the streets and descending on the White House and the Capitol Building with pitchforks and torches. (Think of the town scene in Young Frankenstein. You know… before the cop started talking.)

    We have models to follow, and we’re following them. The models of Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Iceland and Italy. And how are those working out for us?

    Instead of running AWAY from those models, we’re running at full speed TOWARDS those models.

    Like the columnist said a while back:

    “The reason we have such a massive deficit is because Congress wants one.”

    This rip off is, to me, confirmation of that.

    Anyone for “Devil’s food?”

    And this guy’s elected to office time after time? It ain’t his fault. Is it?

    He’s outraged that the bill doesn’t contain a trillion dollar tax hike.

    Worse, his constituents will read this tweet in exactly the opposite way we do.

    When we comes right down to it, this is probably the best we can expect right now. The dims are dedicated to the downfall of this country and the only way out is to vote them out. Anything that would help save this country would never pass either the senate or obama. They put country last. I lost the naive idea they are just misinformed some time ago.
