Just raise the debt ceiling

by Neil Rickert

Okay, I get it.  The politicians are at an impasse.  They are unable to reach a sensible compromise.

At least they should be able to raise the debt ceiling for now.  They can then fight the 2012 election on the question of how to deal with the budget problems.  Let the voters decide.

The alternatives will be to fight the election on the great depression of 2011-2012 caused by the Republicans putting ideological purity ahead of the best interests of the nation, or to fight the election on the issue of why the Republicans caused great suffering to people who depend on social security.

  1. What I find amusing about the whole thing was when the president compared the debt ceiling crisis to his kids’ completion of their homework prior to the deadline. If you wanna talk fundamentals, he needs to tell the story of “The Grasshopper and the Ant”.
