    What’s to negotiate? Just spend! It will help the economy!

    I got no problem with raising or not raising the debt limit. Doesn’t matter to me at all. Just don’t go holding obamacare hostage. They’re separate.

    The “debt llimi” is a fairly recent “law”, and used as a blackmail to push all kinds of things through, usually by Republicans when in the minority. They never have problems with wasting ever more money on “defense” projects for junk that doesn’t work, or starting more wars!!

    It isn’t the cost of a car that bothers me, but the cost of buying still more tanks the Army says they don’t want or NEED! And of course, the Air Farce loves to buy airplanes that are less reliable than the Wright Flyer! Our most reliable aircraft remains the B-52, designed and some built in the 1950’s! What does that say about defense contracts that make the government (taxpayers) pay for R & D with open ended “budgets”, rather than corporations putting up THEIR DIME to make a product that works, and only THEN selling it??

    The problem with this cartoon is the point at which the car is sold. In your cartoon the gentleman has yet to buy the car, and is considering going further into debt to get it.

    But in the real world the Congress has already passed the spending bills, the items and/or services have already been received, and the House GOP is simply refusing to pay what it owes for services rendered/ items received.

    So we’re more at the point where the monthly bill is due and the guy who bought the car refuses to send in the check to pay for it — and the repo dudes are hiding in the corner waiting to take the car back and ruin the entire family’s lives.

    No, no, no. The correct analogy is he already bought it and now he needs to borrow more money to pay it off.

    No, No. That’s Bushes clunker that he paid for with a credit card. The bill plus interest keeps coming due every month until it’s paid off.

    It’s good to remember that Republicans invaded Iraq and Afghanistan without paying for it through offsets OR increased revenue.
    They also voted for the Bush Tax Cuts, which compounded the problem. They followed that with Medicare Part D, again, unpaid for and the Bush stimulus again not paid for, to no one’s surprise.
    Now, Republicans demand that the country NOT pay for what has been voted into law.
    Evidently, the Patriotic Republicans really, really want to damage the credit rating of the United States. Again.

    ^They just keep sticking their fingers in the socket and flipping the switch, to see if something different happens, just like their attempts to repeal the ACA, 43 and counting?

    Doesn’t actually work that way, Jeff.

    Congress already bought the car. This is about paying for it. Tricky Dick cartoon for mentally challenged?

    Is the cartoonist that ignorant or is he deliberately trying to mislead his readers? The Debt Limit isn’t about increasing debt, it’s about paying debts that Congress has already authorized.

    C’mon Jeff. Please stop perpetuating the fraudulent myth that raising the debt ceiling is akin to writing a blank check for new government spending. What raising the limit actually does is allow the government to make payments on existing debt; debt previously contracted by both Republicans and Democrats.
