“Above the fold” over at Drudge.

The deadline looms.  And as usual, the “reporters” are either incompetent or malevolent demogogues.

… Congress’s deadline to raise the debt ceiling and avoid sending the country into default…

A failure to raise the debt ceiling is not the same as default!  Revenue is sufficient to pay the interest, “entitlements”, and the military.  If the President doesn’t do just that, he should be impeached.

“If we need to put in place some kind of enforcement mechanism to hold us all accountable for making these reforms, I’ll support that, too, if it’s done in a smart and balanced way,” Obama said.

The man needs his fix, people!  He’s going through withdrawal here.  Your desire to hang onto your money is nothing compared to his desire to take it from you.

    I made a mention in a previous comment about a provision in the Reid bill that “deems passed” budgets for FY 2012 and FY 2013 in advance. I don’t know if it is still in the Reid bill but I got the information from this story:

    http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2011/07/over-to-you-harry.php

    One of the little-known features of Harry Reid’s “compromise” proposal–no detailed version of which exists–is that it would “deem” budgets to have been enacted for fiscal years 2012 and 2013. In that event, our government would go a full four years without a lawful, statutory budget being in place.

    If the Republican House allows that to get through, they have abdicated their primary responsibility as Representatives of the people of the United States.

      Excellent point. That the Senate has escaped condemnation for their abdication…

      (I sound like Jesse or Al, don’t I…?)

      …is inexcusable. No one in government should be allowed to skate over their lawbreaking.
