    In what universe do teens give a hoot (or are even aware of) the debt ceiling?

    No, you are wrong again. The debt ceiling is the maximum amount that may be borrowed. The lie about having to borrow to pay old debt is just that, a lie. If we borrow more money we have more debt. At what point do others say they will no longer lend to us. If we pay interest only and continue to borrow, it is even worse.

    Okay seriously. The entire ‘Kenyan’ schtick is just old. There are plenty of reasons to criticize Obama. His race and some urban legend about his birthplace aren’t one of them.

    I think everyone knows the facts of the debt limit but judging by the replies the don’t care and will scream while they plug their ears to keep from hearing it repeated.

    Congress sets the spending, the debt limit is where they are supposed to stop.
    They do not stop and the debt still must be paid.
    The debt ceiling has to be raised to match what has already been spent (borrowed).

    It would be difficult to make this concept any simpler.

    “Spending like a drunken Kenyan. Spend it like it is stolen.”
    Unintentional description of conservatives yet again.

    presidents ask for spending (legally required to submit executive proposed budget annually)
    congress originates spending bills in the House, Senate votes yes, president signs.
    It is a Corporate Endeavor.
    Obama’s annual spending totals 2009-2013 added DEBT to the $10.6 Trillion total January 2009 when O was sworn in.
    Current 2013 total Debt is $17.2 Trillion.
    New debt ceiling deal will raise it to $18.2 Trillion by March 2015.
    Our kids and grandkids will find out about what taxpayers owe, and when they do learn the burden our generation put n their backs, they should be angry with our voting to keep spenders in office and for what Congress and the Presidents plural all did to create this Impossible-to-pay DEBT.

    If this is true, then HE is responsible for NOT curtailing spending. President Obama has asked for the debt limit to be increased multiple times – not for cuts in spending.

    Explain to me again how this is adult behavior?

    And for the record – BOTH parties are to blame for this stupidity. We are in debt up to our eyeballs, and no one gives a dam about it. Instead, we just play partisan politics.

    Just like Nero doing nothing while Rome burns.

    Even the Dems in 2006 ran on decreasing spending, accusing the Republicans of “spending like drunken sailors.” Then the did NOTHING to reduce spending. instead, we get the ACA which will add a trillion in debt within 10 years.

    Yep, future generations are gonna be screwed if the schools don’t start teaching economics better so that the wingnuts can’t use “debt ceiling” as a scary, scary boogeyman in order to avoid fulfilling the basic obligations of a sane society.

    dear t j this is about the first debt ceiling raise that did not have major items attached // genome spending does not have to be done right away [ example the border fence was pasted years ago and still not done] simple await till funds come in
