    It’s constitutional LAW that the National Debt be paid its interest, which is about 18 billion a month. Even in the gov’t shutdown, they’re still collecting taxes to the tune of about 200 billion a month. More than enough to NOT default and obey the law to pay our bills.
    Tom Troll just hoping to keep the low information people ignorant.

    So funny that Tommy Trolls doesn’t put his hero, Barry The King of Excuses, on the bill.

    Fun fact, you can make tea out of Boehner tears.

    It seems that Republicans/Fox “news” viewers well known hatred of Obama has expanded to include the country that elected him twice.

    How else could one explain Republican actions for the last five years?

    Notice it’s Confederate money, signed by Jefferson Davis. This is accurate, given the Republican Party is now run by the idealogical descendants of those who tried to destroy this nation 150 years ago to keep people like our current President in slavery!

    Ummm, since the government is shut down, the IRS does not have the employees to collect taxes, fines, judgments, etc. So the money is NOT coming in. You still have to pay, but there is no one to follow up until later.

    What an idiotic cartoon by an ignorant man with a pen. The USA WILL NOT DEFAULT. This is just barry trying to scare his flock who vote for him as he promises the most free stuff!

    Basic economics 101: If you have to borrow to pay your regular bills, you are already bankrupt.

    Boehner was right to the point.
    “What the president said today was, if there’s unconditional surrender by Republicans, he’ll sit down and talk with us. That’s not the way our government works,” Boehner said.
    It was Obama who was lying from the start and rambled on for over an hour with excuse and bad example after bad example!

    i’m wondering if any gop lawmaker actually filed a lawsuit on the constitutionality of the debt limit law. also, debt ceiling is not a credit card. it does not limit deficits.

    So if we hid the ceiling, we’ll have to immediately cut over 800 billion from the budget. Where will that come from? Oh, that’s right – from the poor!

    What I find funny is that the House is elected directly by the people. One could say democratically elected by the majority. The “Constitutional scholar” President who does not understand what democracy means is not elected via mob rules. And “democracy” does not appear in the constitution but how many times did he say it yesterday? I stopped counting after 5.
    Hey Obama the House was duly elected. the house is in charge of the purse. Get over yourself!
