Congratulations America, you voted and got what you voted for

To be fair you should more or less thank corporate America which funded this idiotic witch hunt, one that believed that President Obama was a F&*$%#$% Socialist trying to set up FEMA death camps.

Now we've elected a House of Representatives so far right and so afraid of their own base there can't be any sort of common sense deal in regards to the debt, deficit and debt ceiling.  

I have little hope at this point, they're going to pull the G#d d$#n temple down on all of our heads:

Debt-reduction negotiations between President Obama and House Speaker John A. Boehner collapsed Friday, derailing an effort to reach a landmark agreement to cut spending, overhaul the tax code and avert a government default.

In subsequent statements, both sides blamed the other for an impasse that threatens to plunge the nation into a fiscal crisis if the government fails to meet a looming deadline to raise the federal debt ceiling.

“It’s hard to understand why Speaker Boehner would walk away from this kind of deal,” Obama said, but Boehner (R-Ohio) countered that it was the president who walked away from an agreement on revenue increases.

“The White House moved the goal posts,” Boehner said in a press conference, demanding “more money at the last minute — and the only way to get that extra revenue was to raise taxes.”

“The vast majority of the American people believe we should have a balanced approach” between revenues and cuts, Obama told reporters. He added that he had been willing to agree to a deal that was more generous to Republican interests than to those of his fellow Democrats."

  1. Has anybody pointed out yet that, if we don't raise the debt ceiling, the debt automatically increases because the interest on the debt will go up?
