Obama Capitulation to the Tea Party

Robert Borosage, Campaign for America s Future: 'The raw deal on the budget ceiling has been cut. The Tea Party terrorists - the extremist faction willing to hold the economy hostage to get their way - have won. The Republic, common sense and decency have been trampled. With the economy deeply depressed, 25 million people in need of full time work, the raw deal will impede any recovery. It precludes any serious action on jobs from the federal government. It will cost jobs as spending is cut. Instead of getting serious about a plan to revive this economy and put people back to work, Washington will remain fixated on what and how much to cut.'

Eliminate the debt ceiling

by Ayn R. Key

The Keynesians and Monetarists who control fiscal and monetary policy in the government will never accept that anything should actually be cut, other than a few token items of window-dressing. Their plan is to keep raising the debt limit every time it is reached. The entire show is Kabuki Theater because the Congress and the President know that the voters are actually watching this time and actually demanding that something be done about the excessive spending. But they do not believe in restraint. So perhaps the opposite approach should be taken on the debt ceiling issue.

Forget Compromise: The Debt Ceiling Is Unconstitutional

Ellen Brown, Truthout: 'The debt ceiling crisis can be averted by enforcing the 14th Amendment, which mandates the government to pay its debts already incurred, including pensions. That means Social Security, which IS an 'entitlement,' in the original sense of the word. We are entitled to it because we have paid for it with taxes. The game of Russian roulette being played with the US federal debt has been called a 'grotesque political carnival' and political blackmail. The uproar stems from a statute that is unique to the United States and never did make much sense. First passed in 1917 and revised multiple times since, it imposes a dollar limit on the federal debt.'
