'm sorry I missed the opportunity to demonstrate as well. Tom Reed ran on his supposed record of "bipartisanship." His no vote against the continuing resolution just showed his true colors. He doesn't care about his constituents, he doesn't care about his state. He doesn't care about his country! All he seems to care about is the extremist right wing strategy of hostage taking and extortion in order to get what they couldn't achieve using accepted and rational political processes.

Just think about it. Tom Reed voted against the continuing resolution which means he voted FOR debt default, FOR worldwide economic ruin and FOR the increased suffering of millions of people!

Let's take this guy out of office come November 2014. Let us vote for OUR best interests, not the Tea Party's!

Seadog...how would you know if someone sitting beside you on a board had been a bomber decades before (before you were even born)?

Really that is my point. Most of us who sit on boards do not get resumes or personal info on each person sitting on the board.

You do know that Ayers then became a leading, well respected, leader in education. That is why they were even together.

Rep Reed voted to continue the shut down of our government and not to pay our bills. I hope we all remember this come next Nov.

Come on granny - momcat53 is the one bringing up traitors, see 10:14 a.m.

"The crime of seditious conspiracy is committed when two or more persons in any state or U.S. territory conspire to levy war against the U.S. government. A person commits the crime of advocating the violent overthrow of the federal government when she willfully advocates or teaches the overthrow of the government by force, publishes material that advocates the overthrow of the government by force, or organizes persons to overthrow the government by force. A person found guilty of seditious conspiracy or advocating the overthrow of the government may be fined and sentenced to up to 20 years in prison"

She was referring to the Tea Party. All I did was bring up the fact that your boy Barry hung with Ayers - who fits the above to a tee. Oh, and granny, Barry kicked off his campaign at Ayer's house in Chicago. So, to answer you, if I was on a board with a BOMBER, I would not step foot in his or her hou

They were on a board together. Now..how many boards do YOU sit on? How many resumes have you requested of others on the board?

For me ..NONE

I have never asked...or been asked...what I did in my past.

Seadog...maybe you need to stop listening to those with NO economic education who are saying a default would not hurt us.

Are you saying it would be fine with you for the USA to only pay our interest..to China and other foreign countries...and NOT pay our own citizens likes seniors and veterans?

Have you looked at any foreign newspapers and what they are saying about our Country?

Apparently not....

"Why are you using projections from 2012"? So, are you really telling my the debt will fall below $17 trillon??

Also, you posted "Ronald Reagan presided over a 188 percent increase in the debt. Bush 41 presided over a 55.6 percent increase, and Bush 43 presided over an 89 percent increase. On the other hand, the year-over-year increase in the debt under President Obama has dropped from 15 percent"

"When Mr. Obama became president in January 2009, the total federal debt stood at $10.6 trillion. This week, it hit $16.7 trillion — an increase of 57 percent. In the same time frame under President George W. Bush, total federal debt rose 38 percent. Under President Clinton, it rose 32 percent"

So which is it - has it fallen under Obama or not?

Quoting a Moonie newspaper like the Washington Times is probably not the most prudent idea.

Why are you using projections from 2012? The news of the debt falling is a current story. Since you used a msm news source, here's ABC in 2013: "For the first time since 2007 – before the recession – the US Treasury is planning to make a down payment on the federal debt. The budget deficit has been shrinking more than expected. Thanks to government spending cuts, and higher tax receipts The Treasury says it expects to pay off $35 billion of debt in the second quarter. That compares to an earlier forecast that it would have to borrow $103 billion."

This is for you sammie:

And I suppose the damage to the economy by shutting the government is a solid business decision. BY a Republican Party that purports to be a cheerleader for Business. The national debt has been impacted by the largest recession, almost depression, in this nations history, and an on budget war. Of which, the saving of the banking industry and others "too large to fail" came directly from President Bush. Our debt is a direct reflection of our economy and odd rescue habits of our national government. Our national Budget is $3 Trillion so the national debt is no that far our of wack. What is out of wack is our national budgeting for all expenses of operating a democracy that protects freedom. But over 250 military bases around the world may be excessive. Time to examine government and how to afford what is needed. Not just cut all social programs, pleaseee-that is ridiculous!

gee friendlier, you tone doesn't match your user name. I didn't realize the caps were on until I was done posting - get a freakin life.

Federal Debt: FY 2014* $18.2 trillion FY 2013* $17.2 trillion FY 2012 $16.1 trillion FY 2011 $14.8 trillion FY 2010 $13.5 trillion FY 2009 $11.9 trillion

3/12/12(CBS News) "The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency"

"The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office. The National Debt will top $20 trillion in 2016, the final year of his second term. That would mean the Debt increased by 87 percent, or $9.34 trillion, during his two terms"
