  •  This circus has absolutely nothing (7+ / 0-)

    to do with the deficit, or the debt - except maybe for the Wall Street gang on the lookout for confidence fairies.  If it were, these two Very Serious People would be looking to cut spending on things we don't need and don't want.  

    They would be looking to cut the DOD budget, overhaul Homeland Security, negotiate drugs prices in Medicare Part D, slap a tax on Wall Street transactions, and let every tax in Obamacare that falls on the rich slide right through implementation without argument or "reform."

    This mess is not at all about the deficit or debt.  It's about killing social programs and flexing political muscles.

    •  It's about tying Boehner in knots and shining (4+ / 0-)

      a very clear and devastating light at the tea party Congress. Remember, all that you speak of will eventually go through Congress....The tea party Congress. We need to make the Republican Congress look like the destructive force that they are. A crazy destructive force that will sink the nation at the expense of their ideology that is what is going on....

      •  You certainly sound prescient now (0+ / 0-)

        that the House Republicans have imploded and gone home for the holidays: Boehner tied in knots; devastating light shone on the tea party, and Republican congress looks like the destructive force they are - Mission Accomplished.
