WASHINGTON (CNN) - In a symbolic vote to send a message to budget negotiators, the House voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to defeat a measure that would have raised the national debt ceiling without any accompanying deficit or spending reduction provisions.
when will they stop playing with this county's future???? Quite being politicians and start being Americans PLEASE!!
Good job Speaker Boehner! I know it was a foregone conclusion, but it's just very good to see some leadership in Washington for getting spending in control. That's what this is all about.
Only a hateful democrat taker would find this to be a bad thing. CNN democrats should take note of other Democrats who found a way to make thier own money, like the best represntatives of modern day Democrat youth, Snooki and the situation.
Can't believe so many Dimwits voted against this Obama-inspired bill...could they be afraid of their constituents and the 2012 election? Of course the CBC and the libs from deep blue states could choke a kitten on TV and their constituents would still vote for their corrupt butts!
So let me get this straight. The GOP Controlled House proposed a bill to raise the debt ceiling with the intention of including no cuts in spending, so they could make a point! Thank you...thank you so much for wasting taxpayer money on such a ridiculous stunt. Thanks guys and girls, glad to see your focusing on job creation. That's ok, many of you are on borrowed political time! We'll remember in November! Remember that slogan? It goes both ways!
Not a problem – We can start by cutting spending for the War Department.
Instead of giving them HALF-A-TRILLION dollars a year [ that's $500,000,000,000]. let's cut'em back to only a few HUNDRED BILLION!
