Geithner: End debt ceiling,
´sooner the better´

CybercastNews Service, by Elizabeth Harrington

Original Article

Posted By:mambo 5, 11/20/2012 7:47:30 AM

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Friday that Congress should stop placing legal limits on the amount of money the government can borrow and effectively lift the debt limit to infinity. On Bloomberg TV, “Political Capital” host Al Hunt asked Geithner if he believes “we ought to just eliminate the debt ceiling.” “Oh, absolutely,” Geithner said. ... “It would have been time a long time ago to eliminate it. The sooner the better."

Interesting....never once heard him answer the debt crisis question this way before the election. Hey...I guess deception is the norm these days.

At some point, if such mind-numbing stupidity is not effectively made illegal among our officials, we are going to fall apart.

They do these things because they know there are no repercussions.

I keep thinking that at some point, Harvard, Yale, et.al. will demand the return of the degrees held by their respective alumni who make such blatantly idiotic remarks. Surely somewhere there is a Board of Regents with a single honest member saying "He said what?"

End the Debt ceiling? End the Republic!
I have a better idea. raise the debt ceiling by 40billion every 60days. Just enough to put off default and keeping next years deficit at 240billion. That is a lot better than 1.2 Trillion. :-)

Geithner, despicable, wants a blank check on spending and money printing. That would leave Congress with no role in the nation´s affairs, but rubber stamping Obama follies.

To his credit, even Democrat Congressman Bobby Rush, from Illinois´s 1st District, foresaw this leftist lunacy from young Timothy and his immediate boss, coming down the tracks over twelve-years ago:

"He went to Harvard and became an ´educated fool.´ We´re not impressed with these folks with eastern elite degrees."

House GOP has to attach a limit to what the Federal Reserve can purchase/hold in Treasury & Agency obligations. Fed is currently largest buyer of federal debt, giving Obama and Dems a credit card without borrowing limits. Don´t need the Chinese, just an accommodative Ben Bernake.

What??!!

A limit on spending??!! For Washington politicians who don´t have the common sense of a teenage alcoholic?

Don´t all parents give their kids the keys to the car, the liquor locker, and a limitless credit card without asking a single question?

That´s all that little Timmy wants.

Might as well end the debt ceiling since neither party observes it. Whenever spending approaches the ceiling, both parties play a little political ping pong with it and ultimately agree to raise it. Perhaps more basic financial management might be in order for government programs. But, as former congressman Simpson of the bi-partisan commission said, suggest a little shared responsibility and you get your shorts ripped off.

On a serious note, I hold President George W. Bush in high regard, but he and the republicans didn´t seem to be bothered with spending limits. Both parties share the guilt.

The repubs need to simply shut down the government for 3 years.... A CR for military, and CR for SS/Medicare. No other budget allocated or approved.

Lay off their staff and still "work" to keep the EO train less on.

It´s the only way they are going to stop these idiots.

Of course, the pubbies will cave instead.

Geithner, the tax cheat, is a fool. Until this country goes back to fiscal responsibility, we will be going down the road to ruin. Can any smart person actually believe that we can keep spending at an astonishing rate, then print more dollars to cover the cost, and think it will not collapse the whole system? Geithner is both ignorant and arrogant. We have people living in houses right now for free; they were allowed to buy houses they could not afford. We have a student loan debt in this country bigger than the credit card debt. GM is selling cars to people with no money, no down payment, and since Ally, their financial company is owned 80% by the American taxpayer, we are again continuing the GM bailout. We are giving illegals welfare, food stamps, and government assistance; when is this going to stop?

David Axelrod: ´Angry´ ObamaCare opponents

"Angry" Obamacare opponents are "more mobilized" for the 2014 midterm elections than the health care law´s beneficiaries, according to a longtime adviser to President Obama. David Axelrod, an Obama veteran who is now advising Britain´s Labour Party, told the New York Times that Obamacare suffers from a public perception problem. Obamacare is viewed "more as a social welfare program than a social insurance program," Axelrod said, "but that's not right because it is social insurance." Axelrod's distinction is questionable given the massive Medicaid expansion within Obamacare,

Chicago will be the site of a digital manufacturing institute backed by $70 million in federal money and another $250 million in private and other government funding, giving the city, once a factory town, a better chance to re-establish its credentials as a modern maker of things. The decision, to be announced officially Tuesday by President Barack Obama, was hotly anticipated by city and state officials who recognized the opportunity to jump-start high-tech manufacturing as a core component of Chicago’s economic vision.

President Obama said Saturday that he believed that the chances of a final, comprehensive nuclear agreement being struck with Iran are less than 50-50. However, Obama defended the interim deal struck between the U.S., Iran, and five other world powers last month in Geneva, saying that diplomacy had to be tested as a solution to the crisis and was the best way to prevent Tehran from acquiring automatic weapons. "If you ask me what is the likelihood that we´re able to arrive at the end state ... I wouldn´t say that it´s more than 50-50," Obama said. "But we have to try."

How affordable is the Affordable Care Act? Not very, it would seem for Washington state resident Jessica Sanford. The self-employed single mother was cited last month as an ObamaCare success story by President Obama in the Rose Garden. But according to Washington State Wire, she´s now finding out she doesn´t qualify for the tax credits she was originally told she´d get. Sanford, who told the news site she hasn´t had health insurance in 15 years, initially said she was excited by the prospect of purchasing a policy for her and her son under ObamaCare. Before ObamaCare, Sanford was getting health insurance rate

France and Mexico have angrily demanded prompt explanations from Washington following fresh, "shocking" spying allegations leaked by former US security contractor Edward Snowden. The reports in French daily Le Monde and German weekly Der Spiegel revealed that the National Security Agency secretly recorded tens of millions of phone calls in France and hacked into former Mexican President Felipe Calderon´s email account. French Interior Minister Manuel Valls described the revelations in Le Monde newspaper as "shocking", in an interview Monday with Europe 1 radio.

ObamaCare may have its skeptics, but one group is decidedly optimistic -- prison inmates. "At least 50 percent of the [prison] population has symptoms of mental health disorders," said Brad Brockmann, executive director of the Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights at Brown University. "With Medicaid expansion, we have an incredible opportunity to take care of the very neediest, the very poorest while freeing up huge amounts of money within the states through not having to provide that care in correctional settings."

President Obama has made many promises about his signature health care plan, but one of the simplest was an assurance that it would lower national health care spending and save every family thousands of dollars. For example, in May 2009 he hailed "comprehensive health care reform -- so that we can do what I pledged to do as a candidate and save a typical family an average of $2,500 on their health care costs in the coming years." But now government actuaries have reached a different conclusion, finding that ObamaCare will actually increase health care spending by $621 billion over the next

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
