Conn Carroll on Chuck Schumer’s revelation that Barack Obama is considering ignoring the debt limit in violation of the 14th Amendment:
“Considering the ease with which Obama has violated bankruptcy law, refused to enforce voter fraud laws and ignored the War Powers Act, what is stopping him from ignoring the debt ceiling?”
Carroll also explains why the Democrats didn’t bother to raise the debt ceiling last year when they had control of both houses of congress:
“The Democrats decision not to raise the debt limit when they still controlled both houses of Congress was a calculated political gamble. They wanted to use the debt limit vote to separate newly-elected Republicans from their Tea Party base…Democrats had a chance to pass a clean debt limit. But instead they insisted on taking the Republicans hostage by dumping the debt limit responsibility on the newly elected members of congress.”
OOops! Cutesy-poo gone bad!
Don’t these DC hacks and dullards ever consider the well-being of the country over their own lust for power?
As the Democrat’s wonderful leader said when running for POTUS in ’08:
“Let’s resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for too long.”
The congressional Democrats just couldn’t “resist”.
