Knowing that Republicans will have a better ‘hand’, President “No Compromise” Obama is already making his intentions clear that he won’t negotiate with the GOP over the debt ceiling fight that’s coming soon. He wants his debt ceiling increase just like his fiscal cliff bill – with little to no concessions on his part.
Here we go again.
YAHOO NEWS – After Congress’ narrow dodge of the fiscal cliff, Washington isn’t exactly breathing easy.
Major fiscal fights remain for the coming session and President Barack Obama has signaled his unwillingness to put Americans through another drawn-out battle over the nation’s debt limit, which Congress will vote on this term.
“While I will negotiate over many things, I will not have another debate with this Congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they’ve already racked up through the laws that they passed,” the president said late Tuesday night after the fiscal cliff compromise.
The nation hit the debt ceiling limit on Monday.
Republicans have pushed back against raising the debt limit in past years, and this time around they’re expected to use the fiscal cliff negotiations as leverage to press Democrats to compromise on spending cuts.
I really hope we can oust Boehner from the speakership. It’s clear he can’t deal with such a mental case in the White House.
