There needs to be a massive cut in military spending more than anything else and some major taxation of people like the appropriately named Koch brothers.

Are you freakin' kidding? Cut the military budget and leave this country unsafe from all the terrorists who are forming more and more cells in the US by sneaking across the border with the illegal aliens. You may be drinking too much Kool Aid, and are brainwashed by the lamestream media.

Apologies, I missed this.

I'm not kidding because looking at the facts, the US military are about as useful as boy scouts so cutting their funding isn't going to alter anything one jot.

I agree with NO but we also need not complain when something we get, gets cut, as long as it's done fairly, across the board.

No... The Democrats do not do what they say they will do! They say one thing and do another. Sometime, the GOP has to hold the line!

"No" is the critical response whenever a Democrat co-action or agreement is wanted or expected - we American Patriots must remain true blue and aloof from the deciets and tricks of those wishing to destroy us from within...the only way it will ever be done!

What is critical is that the current course is changed - dramatically! If a budget can be passed that includes the drastic changes in social and pork spending necessary to change our future then the debt ceiling is not material.

The US will not default on the debt without an increase. If the Repubs get all of the spending cuts promised since Reagan and they are implemented first then they can promise to think about considering a potential raise in the debt limit a some future time.
