The enemy of the left is the Republican Party.
The liberal media, Barack Obama and the Democrats prove this every day.
Republicans want to cut runaway spending and debt. This infuriates liberals to the point that they are comparing the GOP to Islamic killers.
Greg Sargent at The Washington Post reported:
Big news. Eric Cantor has just made it official: The GOP leadership is prepared to agree to a three month debt ceiling hike. This is a major de-escalation of the crazy and effectively means Republicans have all but taken the threat of default off the table completely.
First, the key bit from Cantor’s statement:
We must pay our bills and responsibly budget for our future. Next week, we will authorize a three month temporary debt limit increase to give the Senate and House time to pass a budget. Furthermore, if the Senate or House fails to pass a budget in that time, Members of Congress will not be paid by the American people for failing to do their job. No budget, no pay.
Here’s why this matters: This increases the debt ceiling to authorize borrowing to pay the country’s bills well into April. That punts the debt limit deadline until after the deadline for funding for the government to run out, which is on March 27th. In other words, Republicans will now use the threat of a government shutdown along with the coming expiration of the sequester to extract the spending cuts it wants. Presuming this all gets resolved by then, or soon after, it means the threat of default is no longer a factor. This will all but certainly get resolved in advance of this three month deadline, and a long term debt limit hike will get attached to that agreement.
Unfortunately, we still have a Republican party that believes you can play nice with these thugs. And America suffers because of it. And our debt continues to pile up.
