Ma Pelosi: Give Obama Unlimited Power to Lift Debt Limit to Infinity

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wants Barack Obama to have the ability to raise the debt limit to infinity.
She goes by the Constitution. She’s a Constitutional expert.

CNS News reported:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Friday that Congress should hand over to President Barack Obama the power to unilateral increase the limit on the U.S. government’s debt.

In effect, under the plan Pelosi is endorsing, the only limit on the national debt would be President Obama’s willingness to borrow money in the name of American taxpayers.

At a Friday press conference, a reporter asked Pelosi if she agreed with a proposal made by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner that Congress give Obama the power to unilaterally increase the debt limit.

“Yes,” she said.

    For once, I absolutely agree with Pelosi.

    GIVE HIM ENOUGH ROPE.

    Well, at the very least, they did bother to inquire first.

    So, any Obie voters begin to develop any misgivings about your choice yet? If not, I’m sure there are plenty more in the works that’ll give you lots of food for thought about what you’ve done.

    It’s one thing to have a dewy-eyed progressive ideology. It’s another to be demonstrably out of your mind.

    Animal Farm:

    Squealer was sent to make the necessary explanations to the others.

    “Comrades!” he cried. “You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organization of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for YOUR sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples. Do you know what would happen if we pigs failed in our duty? Jones would come back! Yes, Jones would come back! Surely, comrades,” cried Squealer almost pleadingly, skipping from side to side and whisking his tail, “surely there is no one among you who wants to see Jones come back?”

    It’s not Nancy, it’s the Botox talking. It affects the mind, you see.

  • The whole world is now just a Slush Fund for Democrats. Literally. Follow the money and see how much of it she has personally. They give out snippets of it for Contraceptives, Phones and such, and receive all the votes they need for permanent status as de facto Princes and Princesses. A new Ring in Hell is being built for them.

    Obama fans are never going to get it. There is nothing that can occur that will make them get it. It’s the ignorant leading the ignorant.

    This again proves that she doesn’t care a thing about the future of our country.

    She’s got her millions.

    She’s got her off-shore accounts.

    Our country has given her more than everything she needs.

    She no longer needs our country at this point.

    She and her husband will simply “fly the coop” when China stops loaning our government money.

    The so-called “Rev. Wright” talked about the “chickens coming home to roost” in his hate filled Khutbahs. Well, the time has come for us to ready ourselves for when the real chickens in our government begin to fly the coop.

    Obama trying to carve his name in history next to Lenin, Stalin, Castro, and Mao

    This is only the beginning. Libs are in full Marxism mode since the election

    Our lead is ready and fully loaded baby. Bring it on.

    Libs are in full Marxism mode since the election

    What do you mean, since?

    They’ve always been big on that ideology. It’s just that they’re no longer as reticent about openly displaying their inclinations toward it.

    Give it to him.

    Let it burn.

  • Mannie

    This would give him, essentially dictatorial power. He’s governing without a budget, now. With unlimited funds, he would have nearly absolute power.

  • Dave in NYC

    The point of a debt limit that is separate from the normal budgeting process is stupid. If I were either party I would never agree to a budget without also making sure that I would not need to also negotiate over the debt limit 6 months later. Otherwise you’re basically negotiating the budget twice a year.

    There wouldn’t be a problem with a debt limit if the a-holes in Washington would just stop expanding the government.

  • Article I Section enumerates the powers of Congress. One being: “To borrow money on the credit of the United States;”

    If it is debt then it is borrowing.

    Congress has no authority to delegate this authority to the President.

    She should be in a straight-jacket, but then again, it is just plain and simple that the woman has no problem with Obama destroying the U.S. economy. She is a traitor and should hang with the rest of them.

    To infinity. And beyond!

    Hah. I was watching MeTV, the old time TV re-runs network and the Dick Van Dyke show comes to mind. Anyone ever notice how Pelosi looks and acts a lot like Rob and Laura’s ditzy, brunette, laughable neighbor, Millie Helper? When I see the DVD Show and Millie Helper appears, I always think of Pelosi.

  • AuntieMadder

    You’ve got to ask yourself why she isn’t worried about that kind of power in the hands of the next POTUS, that s/he might use it in a way that opposes Pelousy’s beliefs and her party’s goals. Does Pelousy know something about who the next POTUS will be, to which party he belongs and whose ideology he shares?
