"What we're trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget. We're trying to save life on this planet as we know it today."

Nancy Pelosi

This statement by Nancy Pelosi reflects (1) exactly how stupid she thinks Americans are, (2) exactly how desperate she is to use a magnified scare tactic, “to save life on this planet”, rather than proposing a rational idea, (3) what they are “trying to do is” nothing to “save the world from the Republican budget”. Democrats don’t have a plan. Obama doesn’t have a plan. They actually do but they don’t want to share it until it is passed, much like when the health care bill was passed. The Senate passed its version of comprehensive health care reform on December 24, 2009, on Christmas Eve of all days, when America was obviously somewhat distracted. On March 21, 2010, the House of Representatives, in broad daylight, sent the Senate’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590) to the president’s desk as a result of a 219-212 vote. All 178 Republicans opposed it and 34 Democrats opposed it. In November of 2010, Americans spoke by voting in the mid-term elections and “shellacked”, as Obama appropriately described it, the Democratic Party. (4) The ideas Republicans have are threatened to be DOA in the Senate or vetoed by the president. Where is the bipartisanship? It’s not as though Obama and his liberal counterparts are riding a wave of success since our president was sworn in. (5) Of all the political figures we routinely see in the news, Nancy Pelosi has to be the most eccentric, illogical, senseless fountain of gibberish that has ever spouted political murk into the shallow pool of what our American Congress has become.

The way things stand now, regarding the debt ceiling, Boehner is scrambling after facing a small mutiny of fellow Republicans in the House who don’t feel enough spending is being cut and Pelosi is urging House members to have no part of what she claims is nothing more than a political football for Boehner. Tick tock, tick tock.
From Fox News, “The new measure on the House side depends on caps on agency budgets to cut more than $900 billion from the deficit over the coming decade while permitting a commensurate increase in the nation's borrowing to allow the government to pay its bills. It would provide for another debt-ceiling vote next year if Congress can find another $1.8 trillion in deficit reduction.”

1,093.2 miles to go.
