Since you're so damn all-fired willing to put things people like "on the table" to be cut in exchange for an increase in the debt limit, THEN WHY IN HELL DON'T YOU PUT THE FIASCO OF "OBAMACARE", WHICH ALMOST EVERYONE HATES AND NOBODY REALLY LIKES, UP FOR REPEAL??
All you are trying to do is stick it to the Republicans, and you don't much care who gets hurt, do you?
You Republicans reading this: know that if you don't raise the debt ceiling, the USA does not HAVE to default, IF "president" Obama does his duty and makes cuts more massive than the minimum you would be satisfied with. And don't let him push it off on YOU. remind everybody continually that had he just junked Obamacare, he wouldn't have had to do the cutting.
He'll offer to make you look like goons for voting for cuts in Social Security, because that hook has been set. Ditto Medicare.
But the people are not yet terminally addicted to Obamacare, and the Dems are hell-bent on holding onto that un-Constitutional piece of garbage because it will give them the tools to totally control every aspect of every person's life in this Nation.
So demand the repeal of Obamacare as a condition of raising the debt ceiling (and then don't raise it very much).
STAND FAST. WE ARE WINNING!!!
