Just reading the news that the House GOP is considering a short term hike to the debt ceiling.
Paul Ryan, as quoted in “The Hill” this afternoon:
“We’re discussing the possible virtue of a short-term debt limit extension so that we have a better chance of getting the Senate and the White House involved in discussions in March,” Ryan told reporters gathered at the pricey Kingsmill resort in Williamsburg, where the House GOP is holding its annual retreat.
I give up.
What, pray tell, Mr. Ryan, will be different in two months, other than that we will have gone several hundred BILLION more in debt , without ANY cuts in spending or entitlements.
Here’s an idea for you, Mr. Ryan. Once, just once, how about a SHORT TERM CUT IN SPENDING to go along with the debt ceiling increase.
You clowns are absolutely clueless. You bring to the floor bills that pass with almost NO GOP support. The Democrats are openly laughing at you. When she was Speaker, did did she ever allow that? No, you dumb asses, she didn’t.
Well, enjoy it while you can.
Boehner can have one last good public cry when he hands Nancy Pelosi the Speaker’s gavel in two years.
