    this is Americas debt. And Democrats wanted it to be bigger. That is why we need to not expand - it never ends

    time to cut our losses. suffer though it and stop fucking the world over
    Cut or losses? default on our obligations? Not pay interest on bonds, or social security recipients? Send the country and the world into a major depression?
    You are either an idiot or just plain stupid, maybe both. You have no fucking idea of what you post.

    As Democrats scramble to raise the debt ceiling before the U.S. defaults, Republicans like Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) have been misleading the public about who incurred the debts in the first place. More and more transparently, the GOP is revealing that their goal is to cause financial disaster — and to blame it on Democrats.

    Republicans are planning to block yet another Democratic attempt to raise the debt ceiling on Wednesday. Over the past few weeks, they’ve left Democrats with few options for avoiding a default, which has led President Joe Biden to suggest that his party’s leaders carve out a filibuster exception just for the debt limit.

    Even though a debt default could spell financial chaos for the country, potentially sapping trillions of dollars of household wealth from American families, Republicans have refused to budge — and even though the debts that need to be paid were incurred during the Trump administration, they are claiming the debt is the Democrats’ fault for wanting to pass their widely popular social and climate spending plan.

    US debt, not from a person or party. Required by the Constitution. Big waste of time.

    yep. I care more about conservation apparently. We are living an untenable lifestyle, and allowing you to continue to deficit spend is just making it worse.

    We used to have a check and balance - you had to save to spend. You abused this power - which was created to prevent things like depressions. now when peoples home values start to crater - because it was in a bubble, you use this power to rob the world so you can continue to live an untenable lifestyle. Or you do it so you can give money to Haitians. And on and on and on. No end in sight, unless we cut your card

    also - we defaulted before. 1971 - the Nixon shock. so stop pretending it can't be done.

    The CBO forecasted ACA was unsustainable and would drive debt out of reach

    Since when did raising the debt ceiling become political?

    Now that that has become political- the debt ceiling must be done away with- to prevent this crisis from happening again.

    We have NEVER defaulted, and the debt in question was all incurred by Trump, to which you never once complained. Now why wont republicans pay their own bills, and cut out the BS.

    Clinton raided the social security fund to make it look like we had a surplus. Our total debt went up every year Clinton was in office - and once again - he wanted to spend so much, the Contract With America prevented him from doing so.

    nice try clown shoes. you lose too
