    If the Democrats didn't waste so much money the debt ceiling wouldn't be a problem.

    When you have a limited vocabulary, narrow view of the world, and the tactics of a war criminal oozing from all pores, you're a dyed in the wool republican. When you know the cost of everything, but the value of nothing, you're a republican. Looking forward to 2014. Hope to see as many of you as possible in the unemployment lines. Then we really need to cut these benefits, but to the bone.

    The GOP / Tea Party wants power so bad they are willing to run over every single American that gets in the way. EGO, Money, Religion and Hate are the only things that fuel them. Well unless it is more money from the NRA. Stop the government military complex. Stop the GOP / Tea Party NOW. If you don't you will be fighting more wars, living under religious rule and equal rights will go straight out the window. Elect them and watch as they tank the economy again. Track record says it all. DO NOT TRUST these guys. Vote all of them out of Office now! Even the "moderate" GOP is so far right they could careless about the American people. How can this be ignored, how can you turn a blind eye and how on earth can you side with their hate. They have not proposed one good idea. Not one. Money, Ego, Guns religion is that what America is all about ? That is exactly the message the GOP / Tea Party is passing along via their actions and in most cases in action. Why isn't America about Tech, climate change, ending wars, peace. By being paranoid the terrorist have won and you are letting them by keeping and GOP / Tea Party member in office. Beck, Hannity and Limbaugh operate on behalf of the GOP / Tea Party via fear. And thanks to the media they are heard. Stop and think about they hate they inspire in you against other Americans, how can they be right ? It's not and if you think it is I can guarantee you the founding fathers would laugh in your face because THIS is NOT what they had in mind. They where Sensible men. these are not.

    Yep, that's the dysfunctional, divided, poorly organised, disunity of the GOP! Now it's actually screwing investor's confidence in the US market! All so that poor people wont be covered for basic health insurance! Way to go, destroyers of democracy! Remember 2012? Remember how Obama made the ACA a central part of his platform? Remember how the majority of Americans voted for him and that platform? What gives them the right (the minority) to stop a plan that was VOTED FOR by the american public? If this was reversed there's be 24 hr coverage on FOX about the distructiveness of the leeft, but since its the Guns Over People party, the news is distorted and diverted away.

    When the President is fiscally irresponsible, others have to assume that responsibility. Pure and simple.
