So T.P. was responsible? Maybe a good flush will take care of the T.P. With all this talk of T.P., will Cornholio consider a run for the Presidency?

Anyone that believes that a "party" with perhaps 10% influence of congress is "responsible" is both a Democrat and a moron.

The "deal" that resulted in the downgrade was at the demand of the Democrats and was signed into law with much fanfare and a rousing public speech by Obama. Now they are trying to run away from it by showing a video of a few insignifigant bus followers?

Remind me to bump this for you a few years down the road. Half of our debt by 2019 will be Bush Era Tax Cuts and the Wars. The GOP will probably have full control of the house, senate, and white house by NOV 12 so you barely got a year of saying it is Obama's fault. Soon you'll have to say it's Romney's fault. You have been severely fooled by GOP PRINCIPLES of low spending and small government. In reality the GOP are huge spenders with a combination of raking in small revenues (at least the Dems have the revenue part right)...

"By 2019, we estimate that these two policies will account for almost halfnearly $10 trillion — of the $20 trillion in debt that will be owed under current policies."

"How We Got Here

In 1980, the federal debt of about $994 billion was 32.5% of annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP). It rose steeply during the Ronald Reagan/George H.W. Bush years to 66.1%, declined slightly during the Clinton years, and then rose from 56.4% to nearly 84.3% of GDP during the GW Bush years. [8] The following graph shows debt as a percentage of GDP from 1941 to today. [9]

800px-us_federal_debt_as_percent_of_gdp_by_president.jpg?w=640&h=393

Ominously, today’s $14.3 trillion debt may grow to 100% of GDP this year, for the first time since WW II. [10]

As we have explained, the rise in federal debt federal debt over the last 30 years has been the consequence of policies favoring wealthy people and the corporations they control in the so-called “Reagan Revolution.” Through substantially lower taxes on capital gains, corporate earnings, and income taxes at the top income tax rate, together with decreased regulation of banking and corporations leading to vastly higher profits, the wealthiest 1% of Americans has greatly increased its percentage of total incomes and wealth. The value of the increased percentage of total wealth held by the top 1% over these years is about $10 trillion. (Meanwhile, the bottom 99% and the declining middle class did not gain wealth, and actually lost more than $5 trillion through the loss of home values after the housing market crash in 2008.) Government spending was not reduced to reflect the lower taxes that enabled the top 1% to amass more wealth.

Instead, as shown on the graph, the Republican administrations ran up what now totals (including compounding interest) more than $12.2 trillion of the federal debt. In effect, wealthy people and corporations used the borrowing power of the United States to finance their increased incomes and wealth. The consequences of these thirty years of increased inequality are important to understanding today’s situation."


India, gun buyback and steamroll.

Now who's being naive? The Republican party is a slave to the whims of these delusional individuals whose mantra is cut taxes, cut spending in order to take back the government. In effect they end up signing more of there paycheck over to the wealthy and blame it on overspending, etc. It's downright silly but why let logic intrude on the fantasy.

... cut spending in order to take back the government.

They don't want to "take back" government, they want to dismantle it. The government has played a pivotal role in the rise of the middle class over the last few decades and the plutocrats want to dismantle that. The existence of a middle class in this country has led ordinary people to expect crazy things like a house and a car and a smartphone and a college education for their kids. The plutocrats want to end that so they can compete with countries like Brazil and India.

S and P didn't just reference the Deal. They referenced the politics. If you have a percentage of people thinking default is actually a good idea, then you might be set for a downgrade....

Don't be so dramatic. The government didn't create the middle class.

So these are Democrats there at the rally? Could have fooled me.

re-read his post. I think you missed the point.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
