The debt ceiling is being utilized as leverage in yet another hostage taking crisis. This time our economy will suffer again if we do not allow Republicans to hit Social Security, which they continually and wrongly call an ‘entitlement’ program. Of course, last time our economy suffered dearly when these tactics were used too, so much so that America endured its first credit downgrade in history.
Lindsey Graham on Social Security:
Raising the debt ceiling enables us to pay our bills — it’s not just this president’s spending but past presidents as well. I don’t like George W. Bush’s wars but we pay for them. It’s on our tab.
Gosh, I wonder what Ronald Reagan would say about this?
Ronald Reagan would be called a RINO by today’s Republicans.
