Debt Ceiling Grandstanding
The truth is, the Republican campaign donors are rich...As are most Republican Congressmen. The US defaulting will not stop the flood of contributions from oil companies or the Koch brothers. Their lives will not be affected by this; Yours will. The Republicans maxed out Daddy's credit card and now refuse to even pay the interest on their debt and instead, make it out to be Obama's fault. They are the ones who are not compromising. This debt limit increase is not so "Obama can spend more" or "give handouts to fat black women in the projects who had too many kids they couldn't afford". The debt limit needs to be increased to pay the interest on Bush's debt created by his $2.2 trillion dollar tax cuts and his 2 wars and shitty economy.
The Republican's just had a steak and lobster dinner and walked out without paying the bill. Period, end of story.
