NBC News is reporting this morning that Congress is "very close" to a deal that will raise the debt limit 2.8 TRILLION dollars over the next two years.
The deal will allegedly require $1 TRILLION in cuts over the next two years, with another 1.8 TRILLION dollars in cuts to be "recommended" by a joint Congressional "Committee."
The "Committee" would be "required" to recommend cuts by this November, and should this committee fail to agree, cuts in Defense and Medicare would be automatic and decimate both programs.
Who'd get the blame for these cuts? Why the Republican's of course, who the Democrats are already blaming for "wanting to kill our Senior citizens." Cutting the Military budget is the liberal Democrats dream, if they had their way they'd gut our Defense capabilities to zero.
Additionally, this deal is designed to avoid any further discussion on the Debt and Deficit until after the 2012 elections, and gives Obama everything he asked for.
Once again, the Republican Party is snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, and is subsequently handing Obama the 2012 election by taking his debt-laden spending spree of $5.7 TRILLION DOLLARS since taking office, off the table.
Way to go, Boehner. Kick the ball down the road and let future generations deal with this mess, now that's leadership alright.

Send Letter to Boehner Threatening U.S. Credit Rating
Last night, all 53 Senate Democrats signed a letter addressed to House Speaker John Boehner (R – OH) saying that they would rather the U.S. “default” on its debt rather than pass any plan passed by the House GOP that would cut spending and force another vote next year.
All week, we’ve been told that it’s the “Tea Party” and the Republican’s in the House that have been holding the debt negotiations hostage.
Well folks, who’s the “Party of No” now? It sure isn’t the Republicans, who are actually acting in this country’s best interest by directly addressing the debt and deficit while trying to take away this “President’s” unlimited check-book.
In the letter to House Speaker Boehner, Democrats argue that a short term extension of the debt ceiling would “put America at risk” arguing for a larger extension over a longer period of time.
Translation: The Democrats aren’t serious about cutting spending – ever.
Just look at the CBO’s numbers to see who the party of big spending really is! Obama more than tripled the budget deficit in his first year in office alone! These are the non-partisan CBO’s numbers here folks, I don’t make this stuff up!
Remember, the Democrat controlled Congress between 2006 and 2010 (four years!) failed to pass a Federal Budget. These were the same Democrats who quadrupled the annual budget deficit, and increased the national debt by 50%.
Here we have a prime example of 53 politicians that need to be shown the door ASAP. They’ve been part of the problem so long, they’ve demonstrated they cannot be part of the solution!

Six months ago, there seemed to be no end to the wreckless spending spree the Obama Administration embarked on January 20th, 2009 when Obama assumed power.
My how one mid-term election cycle and six months of hilighting the wreckless spending of Obama and the Democrats has changed the dialogue.
Last night, Barack Hussein Obama moved to the left of Dirty Harry Reid. Not only did he move left of Reid, he moved left of the majority of the Democrat party. Here it's important to note that during the 2010 mid-term elections, no fewer than 22 Democrats in the Senate running for re-election or election campaigned on balancing the budget, which the Obama Administration is steadfastly against.
In trying to demonize the Freshmen Republicans (read that: TEA PARTY) last evening, Obama characterized the choice between being a "balanced" approach versus cuts only. Obama's "balanced" approach includes more than $2,000,000,000,000 (Trillion) dollars in new tax increases on top of the expiring Bush Tax Cuts and the $1,500,000,000,000 (Trillion) dollars in tax increases as a result of Obama-Care.
Therefore my friends, the choice once we boil it down to dollars and cents is this: Cut government to live within it's means and the tax dollars it already takes in, or increase taxes to the tune of $4,500,000,000,000 (Trillion) dollars that the Obama Administration is demanding, and let the spending continue.
Let's see, we the American People can send $0 to this wreckless administration, or we can send another $4,500,000,000,000 (Trillion) dollars and let Obama keep spending like he has a blank check.
I choose $0, and by a recent CNN poll, so do 66% of my fellow American's who've woken up recently to the fiscal disaster this Administration has helped accellerate.
The dialogue is no longer how much can the government spend, the choice is now how much can they cut? I suggest they start with cutting and eliminating ObamaCare. That's money we didn't have when that over-arching legislative piece of Socialism was passed, and there can be no legitimate discussion about cutting Government programs without first recognizing that ObamaCare has to go.
Tea Party 1, Obama 0. Game On!

For those who say “War is never the answer” I say this:
Happy Fourth of July!
We didn’t “negotiate”, plead, beg, cajole or otherwise convince the King of England to grant our independence. Those things didn’t work.
Rather, it took WAR with the King of England and his military to secure our independence.
War is never the answer?
Right. Happy Independence Day!
