Enough of this “both sides” BS.
On one side we have Republican terrorists, on the other side we have President Biden.
The President should not compromise with terrorists. Period.
No deal puts the whole world into recession.
Oath keepers has nice teeths (missing one) and Proud boys has just one green teeth. Is that true?
If the GOP would just give 10% to the Big Guy, they would get all they wanted just like China.
Looks like Biden & McCarthy have reached a tentative deal. Oh my GAWD!!! The DC Swamp is considering slightly reducing the rate of it’s out of control spending and borrowing, and that’s on par with negotiating with Isis? Granted, political cartoons are supposed to employ hyperbole, but the message here is downright silly.
And yes, we all know the debt ceiling involves paying current bills.
The fundamentalism of right-wing populism, to include their version of Christianity is a strong parallel to that of fundamentalist Islam, a squelching of minority rights being high on their agenda………………….essentially, I see no difference between duhsantis and the leaders of Iran, both represent peoples afraid to hear diverse opinions and ready to bully others.
Check out the history of the presidential veto. How rarely it was once used. Jefferson and Madison discussed it at length and both thought that it should only be used if the president felt that a law was unconstitutional. That is the People’s House and the Senate passed it, it was not for the president to say no and veto it.
In the case of the debt ceiling however I think Biden is clearly within his rights, per the 14th Amendment, to simply pay the bills as usual. Biden SHOULD have pushed it and forced a showdown in the Supreme Court. He’d likely have lost, but it’s a fight that should have been fought.
Matt Gaetz- “We don’t negotiate with our hostage”
One would have to be naive to think that Repubs won’t try to leverage this into attacks on Social Security, Medicare, education, environmental protections, voter rights, civil rights, workplace safety regs, free speech, women’s rights, etc.
They’re already planning to introduce another round of tax cuts for the wealthiest.
Every year drama….it’s getting old….this govt needs to get their sh¡t together!
D rump thinks his black unitard jumpsuit makes him look slimmer. The king of default is ready to push the button. He’s loves stiffing his creditors. The loons have officially taken over the asylum.
And the current squeaker of the House will be a terrorist, along with the current House moron clique.
Hey Joe, you weren’t elected to be MTG’s poodle. It’s not your age that’s a problem, it’s your lack of spine.
Sadly, due to the political structure the President has to negotiate with the Repub terrorists.
Hope Biden is saving applying the 14th amendment for next election year; we all know the cruel rethugs will do any/everything to hurt the poor/old — again, again and again.
The President did not HAVE to negotiate with repubs. He only needed to comply with the 14th Amendment and remind the repubs to pound sand.
