they raised the debt limit. she finally did go along. the debt limit is perfect political fight and i would say there will be a fight. this money(borrowed) comes right off the top of the dems budget available. they will not like it. more likely they will talk with ben about just printing up some money/or some other gimmack to get around these borrowed funds which will just kill their spending 2 or 3 yrs down the road. and what are they gonna do with the money let me guess--give it to the banks? their gonna get it in a round about way anyway. my guess is this could develop in to knock down drag out fight like in the 80's, driving rates up. but have no fear it will be signed at the last minute. but some politcal group is gonna be the swing vote and they are gonna want something. full healthcare/or no change to healthcare we will see.
