""President Barack Obama suggested that the world could plunge into a new recession if the ceiling on money the US can borrow is not raised in the next few weeks, before the current debt limit of $14.3tn is reached"
So. Same guy who said Obamacare was going to decrease health spending, closing down G. Bay, getting out of Iraq/Afg, ....... Not like he really has a clue to how to fix the problem. He assembled a team to tell him (wise thing), but failed to listen to them. I think the biggest mistakes the last two presidents have made is surround themselves with idiots.
BTW, the NPR/PP issues were just plan stupid by the Republicans. Not saying they are not worthy topics for discussion, but why during a budget process. Why do politicians from both sides always want to fill up these bills with extra stuff.
In my personal opinion, he Republicans missed another golden opportunity to take the lead. If they would have simply embraced a lot of the suggestions of the bipartisan committee with some changes, the American people would have bought into it. Then they could have pigeon holed the democrats saying they didn't listen to their own appoint committee. But know, they have to go to the extreme out of the gate. White House did the same thing.
Enough. It's 5:15 and I have a new MLD Cricket to go setup.
