    What Is A "Clean" Debt Limit Vote?...

    Basically, what it is is a vote on extending the debt limit without doing Anything at All to try to slow down the rampaging deficits that are the CAUSE of such a high, national debt.

    Put another way a "clean" vote is one that gives Obama as much ability as possible to run up the national debt at the fastest rate possible going forward.

    It would seem that a "dirty" bill would be one that tries to curb the underlying deficit problem...

    ... and when Americans are polled on the matter, 70% of them say that a raising of the debt limit should include conditions that curb the size of the deficit.

    Hope that helps,

    S.

    • You must know the debt limit pays for the bills due, not the future spending. That is supposed to be done all year, but the many Senate budget proposals were refused to be heard all year by the House. Do some due diligence. Don't be fooled by false advertising from the GOP. Don't be fooled that Uncle Sam, presented unpatriotically, is looking up crotches. All bogus political stunts..

    • That would be called insanity. Tea Party has already saved us 500 billion by conservative estimates. That's money that was better used in the private sector. Govt only consumes folks, remember that.

    • Interesting .. I'm watching PBS Worldview, they're showing the massive protests in D.C. about Obama's overspending - Did anyone see this on our MSM this evening (??), ABC didn't show it.

      Worldview is also doing a one on one about the U.S. debt and default, and how every "capable nation" in the world owns a piece of it .. yet part of the arguement showed Obama video (3mos. ago) blaming Europe, and telling them to get it's act together because of it's effect on the WORLD economy - he also noted that Obama blames everyone else for the bad U.S. economy, but is on the verge of default because he (Obama) won't control his own spending & borrowing.

      Well, no surprise here - I'm just glad the world knows what WE'RE Dealing with .. and they own a piece of it too = Obama's FINGER-POINTING Legacy .......
