execrable Harry Reid refused to pass the House debt ceiling plan. First the GOP in the House passed Cut, Cap, and Balance and the Senate sunk it. That would have increased the debt ceiling. Then the Boehner plan also passed the GOP House. It also would have raised the debt ceiling, but Reid and the Senate democrats sunk it. Reid actually created part of that plan, but he argued against it. I mean, once it actually passed the House and the Senate had to actually vote on it, Reid chickened out. Amazing, really.
Meanwhile, Obama says he has a plan, but it’s secret. Huh? You know, the democrat Senate hasn’t produced a budget in way over two years, yet it is required by law to be done every year. Why haven’t they? Well, because then they would be forced to stand up and go on record. They don’t want that. Oh, they surely don’t want that.
So now Obama says he has a “secret plan,” but no one has ever seen it. I seriously doubt it exists. Basically, Obama, Reid, and the democrats are saying that there is no compromise whatsoever, and either the GOP jumps in the lake with them or they are going to blow up the boat. They say they want to compromise, but they certainly don’t, and they are willing to risk catastrophe if they don’t get what they want. They have hostages, and they’re not afraid to kill them–they can always effectively blame the police. Heaven knows the lamestream media will aid and abet them. Nice.
