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!
