The debt ceiling dog and pony show.

These 3 Federal Debt Ceiling Nightmares Should Keep You Awake At Night

1. Republicans Say No Way, No How, Ain't Gonna Happen.

2. Trump Vetoes The Debt Ceiling Bill.

3. Trump Orders Treasury Not To Borrow.

Remember all those times the GOP said they were going to repeal the ACA?

 

Just for the record, I don't think the debt ceiling should be raised.  The government needs to live within its means.

I'm assuming the debt ceiling will be increased considering:

  1. The US is still running deficits.
  2. Trump wants to increase military spending.
  3. Trump wants big tax cuts.

Deficits no longer matter. Republicans will raise the Debt Ceiling with little protest from the Tea Party

Which would be just as farcical as the ACA repeal went.   One might as well vote for democrats.

Or Republicans since there isn't that much difference between the two parties when it comes to deficits and spending.

Agreed.   The GOP's fiscal conservatism is a myth.

But this is what happens when there is compromise in congress. You scratch my back and I will scratch yours and then up goes the deficit.

Republicans using the debt ceiling for extortion and as a form of economic terrorism is a relatively recent development with the best solution to eliminate it altogether.

Anymore I don't think there is any difference PERIOD!

Each has it's own agenda's that pretty much have nothing to do with helping Joe six pack. Both want your tax dollars and use them on things that have nothing to do with YOU!
