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.

#4 my ex actually actually used that kind of reasoning.

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?

Chicago picked as site for
Obama´s manufacturing initiative
Chicago Tribune, by Melissa Harris and Christi Parsons    Original Article

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 to shift costs of some prisoner

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."

Gov. actuaries say ObamaCare

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

A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted Quinshaunta R. Golden — a onetime top aide to Dr. Eric E. Whitaker, one of President Barack Obama’s closest friends — on bribery, theft and fraud charges, accusing her of embezzling about $433,000 in state health department funds. The money from the kickback scheme began flowing to Golden in July 2007, when Whitaker headed the Illinois Department of Public Health, and Golden was his chief of staff, the indictment alleges. It allegedly kept flowing until October 2008, by which time Golden and Whitaker had left state government

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
