    Whaaaaat?!
    Raising the *Debt Ceiling* doesn’t raise the debt? If that’s the case then
    how come, if as you say Mr. President, we’ve raised it over one-hundred
    times, our debt has *nearly doubled* since Bush Jr. left. And *TRIPLED*
    since Clinton left.

    Though, *technically* he is right. Just because you increase the ceiling
    doesn’t mean the debt is automatically increased. It’s just putting off the
    inevitable.

    Moron!!! The fate of the nation is sealed IT IS DOOMED!!!

    You are correct in that we have ridiculous deficit spending. So, if we kept
    the debt ceiling the same, we would be forced to reduce that ridiculous
    spending. Instead, by raising the limit, we allow the government to
    continue with its ridiculous spending. Cuts will never come with the
    ceiling always raised.What will come is a financial collapse of our country
    once other nations decide they’ve played along with our phony monetary
    system for long enough.We are making the inevitable that much worse.

    except for the word ‘profligacy’ (shameless dissoluteness; reckless
    extravagance) he sounds like he’s had too much fluoride.

    Raising the debt ceiling doesn’t DIRECTLY raise the debt. Its our
    ridiculous deficit spending that does that. The debt ceiling simply let’s
    us borrow money so we can pay for the things we already bought. Not raising
    it would be like not paying your credit card bill. You already bought
    everything, but then refused to pay for it.

    Gov’t= poor money manager. When a poor money manager gets a higher limit on
    his credit card, he inevitably goes shopping until he reaches the limit.
    Just like Obama.

    He, like his predecessors, is gambling or “hoping” the shit doesn’t hit the
    fan with a total economic collapse on his watch.

    What?? Lol. How bout quit funding the nsa/obamas cabinet. Google the
    federal budget, holy shit! You made your money and we haven’t impeached
    you. Inside trading is illegal and you should be in jail

    Well technically he “is” correct. But actually he will increase the debt
    once the debt ceiling is raised.

    There’s a difference, and It would be useful to you to learn it. When Obama
    voted against it, it was purely symbolic that they weren’t in favor of the
    wars, because the democrats did not hold the majority in the senate
    (55R-45D). So there was no way it wasn’t going to raise. But today’s house
    majority can in fact stop it from raising, and they are threatening default
    if they don’t get what they want. Time to learn things.

    This is a simple concept, right?!
