The country to the edge when they could have signed the one-sentence extension of debt ceiling in five minutes seem to at least know they are not gonna be able to spin themselves out of responsibility for this joke.
Well all the fucked up conservatards that drove the country to the edge when they could have signed the one-sentence extension of debt ceiling in five minutes seem to at least know they're not gonna be able to spin themselves out of responsibility for this joke. There is no 'cliff' because it was already resolved a year ago when they passed these automatic cuts/taxes, and honestly I hope they get implemented. All the people who stand to take a tax hike are fundraisers for the tea bag cause and various other anti-American political movements. I have a good job so I'm not worried. I elected the right president to lead the country so that means even if I lose said job, I will still have access to healthcare. The blubbering ignorants can shove their fists in their asses and maybe they'll have a few more shooting sprees... fuck if I care. I didn't expect their insane ideology to go out without a big bang. I'm not worried about my taxes going up, it amounts to about $150 per year. I can get over it, and so can everyone else.
I know. I cited with Bernanke's claim about a 2nd recession. I just went by the testimonials of other economists whom agree that going over is the best thing for this country to do to control the interest on the debt in the long term (saving us from potential default).
considering what this would do to our already burdened economy (I.E. the increase in unemployment and people on government assistance) i have to disagree on the higher taxes fixing the debt. I honestly believe that the only reason politicians or other important people would say that this would be a good thing for America would be to try and quiet down the mega-rage when this does occur in January. Although debt is a major problem taxing a burdened populous would make the nation's economic situation much worse IMO. However, considering i do not have any degree in economics you might wanna take my opinion with a grain of salt
I wish all ignorant liberals that vote for other ignorant liberals would do a little exercise. Sell lemonade for 10 cents per cup and track your sales for one year. Then, charge 1 million dollars Per cup the next year. Report which year had better revenues.
Liberals want to spend as if they will be selling the same amount of cups and need only raise the prices to offset their ignorant spending.
Bush had these rates, was funding two wars AND had the budget to only 150 billion deficit. A figure everyone in the country would accept at this point. If liberals were not such bloodthirsty vampires wanting the heads of the rich, then they would address their reckless spending and lack of ANY passable budget by this President before they went back to steal more from the people. You don't mention spending because the honest goal is to hurt those you consider privileged.
Ask France, Spain, and Greece how raising taxes to appease the middle class liberals works out for the country.
