Obama asks congress to raise debt ceiling ... again
PostPosted: Thu Jan 12, 2012 8:39 pm Reply with quoteBack to top

political kabuki theater at it's very best.

both the house and senate are expected to vote against the bill (allowing them to save face during this political season), but in the language of the document written last fall they rigged it so that the debt ceiling gets raised even with both the house and senate voting it down. seriously. this is what we've come to. they know that their constituents don't want them to raise the debt ceiling, so they set it up to appear they're on our side, while doing whatever the h*ll they want behind closed doors.

only in Amerika ... who woulda ever guessed that Orwell was actually presenting a best-case senerio ...
