* Kicked the fiscal crisis can down the road again
* Set up another budget committee .... which they will completely ignore ... again
* Once more Obama was not expected to provide any leadership .... just name-calling and blaming
* Got another $1 trillion authorization for more DEBT
* Continued to duck focusing on a sluggish economy, falling employment, falling median income and the impact of ObamaCare on layoffs and shorter working hours
* And, of course, another convenient distraction from Benghazi, IRS abuses, Fast & Furious and other scandals
In 1786, the inept French King Louis XVI faced a governmental financial crisis.
He stubbornly clung to power.
The Bastille was stormed in 1789.
He even compromised ! (Can you believe it?)
A constitutional monarchy was formed in 1791.
In 1793, the King was executed.
That's how it has been done for over 200 years.
Democrats insist they would not agree to that approach unless and until the House approves a "clean" budget bill. But wait ..... if the House passed a "clean" bill there would be no need for a bicameral committee!
Who is keeping the Government shut down? Who refuses to negotiate? .... DEMOCRATS! Pure and simple!
“The EPA does not anticipate that this proposed rule will result in notable CO2 emission changes, energy impacts, monetized benefits, costs, or economic impacts by 2022,” the EPA writes under the comments section of its proposal.
The EPA also admits that “the owners of newly built electric generating units will likely choose technologies that meet these standards even in the absence of this proposal due to existing economic conditions as normal business practice.”

(Reuters) - The U.S. government announced new delays in rolling out President Barack Obama's healthcare reform, saying small business and Spanish-language health insurance enrollment services would not begin on October 1 as planned.
Five days before enrollment is set to begin for millions of uninsured Americans, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said employers with 50 or fewer workers will not be able to sign their staff up for private insurance in federally operated exchanges until a month later, November 1, because of technical problems.
The White House also said a Spanish-language service for Latinos, who make up about one-third of the 47 million uninsured in the country, will also not be available until "sometime in October."
(Forbes, 9/20/2013) Now playing at a theater near you: Barack Obama and the Grand Funk Railroad. In our brand new monthly Zogby Analytics Poll taken September 17-18 among 1000 likely voters, the President’s job approval rating has taken a dive down to 43%, with 54% disapproving of his overall performance. What is particularly striking about this new set of numbers is the dive he has taken among key constituencies that have formed his reliable base.
The President won re-election last November with 71% of the Hispanic vote. He reached 84% approval among Hispanics a few months ago but now stands at 61% approval. African Americans voters gave him 93% support in 2012 but now have dropped to 81% approval. Young voters now stand at 47% approval – but gave Mr. Obama 61% support in his re-election bid. And 56% of the Creative Class voted for him, but today only 47% approve of his job.
And that is not all. Only 30% of independents today approve of his performance; he won a majority last year. He is under 50% from men and women (45% and 42% respectively). Even moderate voters are down on the President: 46% approve. Mr. Obama has dropped among Born Again voters to just 28%, Weekly Wal-Mart Shoppers 43% and self-identified members of the Investor Class 43% . He is down under 50% among voters with passports and self-identified members of the Creative Class – 46% and 47% respectively.
Then WHY do you need to raise it ???????
LIAR ! ! !
You are correct, Amy ..... Senate Democrats are ready to hold the entire Federal Government hostage over a healthcare plan that a majority of Americans do not want !!
if he's planning to shut down the entire government ??
and warns Republicans that they will be blamed for shutting down the government.
If the House passes a bill to fund the government and the Democratic-controlled Senate votes "no" ..... the Democrats aren't at fault? Libtard logic .... go figure !!
You are not only WRONG, dogwipe ..... but incredibly STUPID as well !
* Strengthening bank capital by buying bonds from them does nothing to increase profitability.
* Obama is lobbying for an increase in the debt ceiling .... meaning he wants to continue spending more than the government takes in.
* Monthly net job creation is still negative.
* Median income is still falling.
* Sales metrics at big discount retailers have deteriorated sharply in recent months.
* Businesses are still holding back on making big new investments.
Where is the upside?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
LMAO !! Those are the guys laying off workers and reducing working hours because of ObamaCare and holding off on new investments because of the economic uncertainty created by Obama's skyrocketing spending ! !
A new survey from U.S. Trust finds the majority of high net-worth business owners are entrepreneurial individuals who started their own business and created most of their own wealth.
In a survey of 711 adults with at least $3 million in investable assets, researchers found that 78% of business owners founded or co-founded their companies, and 70% acquired the bulk of their wealth through that business. Less than a tenth of respondents inherited ownership of their business.
With KMR's earnings and dividend growth record, no way it will be down for long !
Sentiment: Strong Buy
A Google search produces no evidence of lots of illegal activities by Holder and Obama, so what's your point? It's all part of the Big Coverup!
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama, in an interview broadcast on Sunday, blamed conservative Republicans for a stalemate on the budget and insisted that while he is willing to haggle over taxes and spending, he will not make a deal would that would impose conditions on increasing the nation's debt limit.
Translation -- I can do the smoke-and-mirrors thing on spending and taxes endlessly, but everyone knows I will end up increasing spending more than I increase taxes ...... so there's no way I will agree to any deal that does not increase the national debt limit! I need to keep spending more and more to buy votes for 2014 and then 2016 ..... and to have any shot at keeping ObamaCare afloat!
