Dems want to raise debt ceiling AGAIN!

They are proposing adding another 1.9 trillion dollars which will bring the debt to over 14 trillion dollars. How do you feel about this.

Don't bring up past presidents either. It wasn't okay then either.

  • We are at risk for the first time in history of defaulting. Gee wonder why? That trillion dollar stimulus that would keep our unemployment from going over 8% comes to mind.

  • Ridiculous!!! It makes me ill that they feel the need to continue to borrow and borrow like money grows on F'N trees. All of us are struggling, they need to do the same. make appropriate cuts, quit spending...the "War' is costing us beyond imaginable amounts.....GRRR I hate politics as it is..but this is just simple minded!

  • If not being able to bring up past presidents, then it makes your argument moot. It seems ALL presidents after this one will raise the debt ceiling.
