Ugliness in America
In the end, President Obama may have to step up to the plate as Commander in Chief, declare the 14th Amendment and take charge of paying the bills starting with soldiers, Social Security and Disability beneficiaries and then whatever he decides.
America has already lost. It is only a matter of time that our AAA rating goes down, and for that you can thank the happy Tea Party. You asked for it, and you got it. We will all pay for your mistakes.
Silliness reigns in the Republican Party
“* House Republicans called for the dismissal of Republican Study Committee executive director Paul Teller today, chanting “fire him” in a closed-door meeting. Teller is facing heat for coordinating with outside conservative groups to pressure undecided members to vote against House Speaker John Boehner’s debt ceiling plan. Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has been rallying opposition to the plan on the Hill. An RSC spokesperson said what Teller did “was clearly inappropriate and was not authorized by the Chairman or any other members of the staff.””
Disgrace and hopelessness to follow.
