    So essentially what Boner and the Reps are saying is; Eff Social Security funding. We’d rather let SS go down the toilet than let Preznit Obama have the last word in how to make the country insolvent as fast as possible.

    Do you morons in DC think we don’t get what you’re doing/not doing.

    It’s becoming tempting to just let them have their way as they don’t show any signs of paying attention anyway and they all can’t be successfully primaried in one election.

    Let the Dems and Obama take the hit for the collapse of the country rather than elect any more Reps to office so the Dems can blame their actions to restrain government (if they do) as the cause.

    To quote Admiral Akbar:

    IT’S A TRAP!!

    They’re going to blame it on the GOP-controlled House no matter what happens, and enough of the electorate are ignorant enough dumbasses that they’ll buy it. How much of that bunch actually makes it to the polls is what we run the elections to find out.
