Secondly, straight from the Jack's mouth :
"Some of our members may have thought the default issue was a hostage you might take a chance at shooting. Most of us didn't think that. What we did learn is this -- it's a hostage worth ransoming." - Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R)
Take a second and think over that language from the Senate minority leader: "It's a hostage worth ransoming."
That's not just the debt ceiling he's talking about. That's the full faith and credit of our country. That's our economy. That's your bottom line.There is a fiscal cliff coming toward us. We do need to rein in our deficits and debt. They amount to generational theft. The world's largest debtor nation cannot remain the world's sole superpower for long.
