Several of us have had to learn to do more with less put a group of injured workers in the budget office...we will show them how to squeeze that penny till it screams like a pig getting casterated.....Obama will be eating beans 3 days a week like we do...bet I could trim that white house budget real fast but you can bet your bottom dollar they wont be eating steak or having a fancy chef to cook for em.....and if bologna and top ramon is good enough for my kids then his can eat it to
NOW this is not The American Dream; This is the American nightmare. You want to bring down middle American citizen's to take Obama out of office?
Everyone with a Brain realizes that all the crap going on with raising the Debt ceiling is political wrangling on both sides. It is so childish.
You may want to live like above but I have worked hard and also has many True Blue Americans to have better than we had in our humble beginnings.
The Rich will get Richer; The Poor will get poorer and the middle man will be left holding the bag.
In terms of George W. Bush, the nation's debt limit was raised 7 times during his time in office (Bush was President from January 20th, 2001 to January 20th, 2009).
The debt ceiling has been raised 72 times since 1962; this has to happen!
NOW to get Obama out of Office the Republicans are willing to sacrifice hard working citizen's Retirement and current life style. THE PROBLEM IS IN WASHINGTON DC NOT MIDDLE AMERICA! I blame both parties but I bet they will not go without a paycheck if the Debt Ceiling is not raised.
Obama is a Idiot but take care of this in the 2012 elections not over raising the debt ceiling. Do not crucify hard working American citizens over Political gain.
NO ONE on this thread was raised any poorer than this boy was; No one unless you originated from a 3rd World Country. I worked hard to not bw this way ever again and do not want Idiots in the White House where over spending is ludicrous taking away everything I have worked for.
Anyone with common sense knows the debt ceiling must be raised........ MUST
Also Social Security for me is not a Damn entitlement! I paid is Social Security for almost 35 years until my Injury. Group the SSI away from the retiree's and SSDI injured workers!
