Republican Manufactured Crisis Hurting Economy Is A Grover Norquist Strategy
“Uncertainty is one of the greatest threats to national security -- fiscal uncertainty,” Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told U.S. troops in Vicenza, Italy, Jan. 17, calling the three looming deadlines -- the second of which could trigger at least $45 billion in defense cuts -- a “perfect storm.”
While Republicans have scheduled a House vote today on a measure that would delay the debt-ceiling deadline for three months, they have indicated they may use the specter of a future default or government shutdown as opportunities to force spending cuts that Obama has so far refused to countenance.
“Instead of short-term management of self-inflicted fiscal crises, the president believes there is now an opportunity to strengthen the economy by putting the nation on a sounder fiscal path,” the White House said yesterday in its official statement which also indicated Obama would still sign the temporary debt- limit bill.
Given the facts, the numbers that are out there that don't lie, how ignorant is this lib? Seems to be a pattern of ignorance when libs are allowed the think, and attempt to express themselves no? HAHAHA "Ignorance can be corrected....being a #$%$ is yours for life."
