Why does the debt ceiling even exist? Seems like a stupid thing to have. Should just get rid of it IMO.

I say we just print up $20 trillion then pay everything off and have plenty left over to make it through the year. Don't know why everyone is so worried. Only morons worry about money.

Instead of creating a new coin why not just mint 4 trillion quarters? We already have the mold or whatever which would save some money.

What is Geitner, Sec of the Treasury?  We need to get an EMAW in that role so next time someone is making Trillion Dollar coins, he can pop a Powercat on there.

Who can forget election season 2006, about the same time Nancy Pelosi was calling for Congressional Investigations of Oil Companies, because of those "insane" Big Oil Profits and gas was about $3 a gallon in her district.

Democrats were blazing a trail:  War Extraction-Check, An End to those Bush Budget Deficits-Check, Stopping the Bleeding of the spiraling National Debt-Check.

Today:  Budget . . . what do we need a budget for?   Debt Ceiling . . . why even worry about it?  Wars . . . all over the world.  Budget Deficits . . . what's a trillion amongst friends?   

Good times.

Republicans really have Obama over the barrel here. They've passed legislation to spend the money so Obama legally has to spend the money. They say they won't let him borrow the money that they've voted to spend.

So Obama can break the law and not spend money on certain government functions or he can break the law and borrow money to avoid breaking the law.

What Kenya do?

To be fair, the spending has bipartisan support.

Good times.

So what do you propose to eliminate the budget deficit? What tax rates are you going to raise and what spending would you cut?

Those 2 questions are open to any libertarian/conservative/republican on the board, I'd like to hear what the other sides solution to eliminating the deficit would be.
