Game of chicken over debt ceiling will hurt global economy When will the Republicans stop playing games with the future of this country and its people and realize what will actually happen if they fail to raise the debt ceiling?

Marcia Sykes, if your sewer pipe breaks and your home is filling up with sewage, do you raise the ceiling or fix the sewage problem? It is the same thing, the U.S. does not have an income problem, it has a spending problem. When they passed the Sandy Relief Bill, it had billions of dollars for things like Hollywood, Nascar and a dozen other things that are a waste of taxpayer money. Those adds to a bill are payback for lobbyists and contributions to campaigns. This country needs to give each candidate X ammount of dollars and not allow ANY campaign contributions. We would save trillions and we could restore confidence in our representatives.

wmarincic - Let's just crash the whole world economy. It would be interesting to study your thought processes that I have observed over the recent months. Consequences of not raising the debt ceiling to sewage to Sandy relief to Hollywood and NASCAR, (I hear Mitt Romney loves NASCAR. He has many friends that are owners!), to campaign contributions??? Very interesting.

OK jane and what you said makes sense how? I had a simple comment that we NEED to cut spending and that the billions of dollars added to the Sandy Releif Bill is a waste of money when we are now borrowing 46 cents for every dollar spent...How hard is that to understand? I guess it is difficult for liberals beause they continue to spend what they dont have......
