I Have Stopped Watching News, For the Time Being

I am sick of hearing about the insanity happening in Washington over the debt ceiling right now and really can't stand listening to the ignorance of anyone who thinks either 1) default is good or 2) Extortion is a fair or moral thing to do.  We simply need a clean bill to raise the debt limit and then move on.  If people want to debate the size of government, fine, we have a big election coming up next year.  That might be a good time to bring up some issues, if you happen to be running for office.

I can barely stomach reading the headlines. I am pulling my hair out over what is a simple concept: paying our bills.  This is a serious mess and we have people who have lost their sanity allowed to hold public office.  Yes, I'm looking at the Republican Cabal in the House when I say that, and if you honestly think what they are doing currently is right, then Zeus help us all.

  1. It is all especially irritating when you consider than this debt is for spending that has ALREADY BEEN VOTED INTO LAW. It is one of the most irresponsible acts of politics I think I have ever seen.

    The blatant disregard for the well-being of this county and its citizens by the Republicans is terrifying. I'd like to see Obama veto Republican hostage taking demand and cite the 14th Amendment to continue to pay our debts. Like you said, debates regarding levels of government spending should occur during the elections, not as leverage to run roughshod over the Dems.
