    By bringing not only our country down, but possibly the entire world with it! Hurray for our side!

    So is Barry done withholding death benefits to soldiers families yet?

    It’s John Boehner who is withholding death benefits to soldiers. He has yet to allow a vote on the clean CR. Obama can’t sign a bill that doesn’t pass congress.

    the speaker is a weak man. senate passed a bill, but boehner reneged. his majority whip can’t even control the members if those members are having a meeting at a taco joint with a texas senator who started this mess. because, of these delays it does real harm to the economy. the last time we did the debt ceiling crisis, it costs us an extra $12 billion in interest payments. the gop can’t not govern.

    @Robert Landers

    it not that far from crashing on its own, it just the drones that believe the media that think otherwise.

    The Senate has provided a compromise, assuming Mr. Cruz doesn’t go off on one of his self-serving tangents again.

    Although it’s not what everyone wants, it will stabilize markets, including the job market, in most places in the world.

    All 200 Democrats in the House are willing to vote for it. And Mr. Boehner is afraid he can’t bring 18 out the 218 Republicans to vote for it? More likely, more than 18 will vote for it, and the Tea Party will relieve him of his speaker-ship.

    As much as I do not relish giving the job to Mr. Cantor, it shows Mr. Boehner’s monstrous ego: he would rather cripple much of the world’s economy than to risk his cushy position. This is beyond pitiful. I hope we all remember this at election time.

    “$16 trillion in debt said, about 3 hours ago
    “The party of stupid has become the party of crazy.”
    You shouldn’t talk about the dems that way.”
    Again showing your inability to comprehend.
    Now try to make a competent comment.
    Boehner is trying to keep his speakership by not offending the extreme right of the party. the extreme right of the party has campaigned for months on closing the government. A few of the more radical have even praised that they have closed part of the government services, while claiming what they shut down was not what they shut down.

    While I can understand that you (and many others, including myself) don’t want our crappy economic decisions to end up on your kids’ tab, the fact remains that it already is. The question is, do you want to increase the interest on the debt by defaulting on our loans, which will make it even worse?

    Granted a choice between bad and worse is not a pleasant choice, but at this time, it’s all we’ve got. I recommend “bad” at this time.

    “Anybody tell me why the senate and congress should be exempt from the ACA?”

    1) You mean the Senate and the House. Congress is comprised of those two chambers.
    2) Are you talking about the insurance mandate? Congressional members already receive health insurance provided by their employer, the federal government. Just what exactly do you think they’re exempt from? No one who currently has health insurance needs to participate in the health exchange.
