Don't Fear The Reaper?

A "cult fringe" is what Iowa's junior Senator, CommieTommie Harkin, called some Republicans in Congress.

Harkin then went on to label Republicans "dead-beat debtors" and claimed -- "Democrats are willing to do whatever is necessary to raise the debt ceiling...".

That's what we should be afraid of and the scientific community is united in that fact.

That's easy for CommieTommie to say now, but President Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Harkin and 40 other Dummycrats have previously voted against raising the debt ceiling.

Harkin's diatribe continued that this vote is not for future borrowing but to pay the debts that we racked up in the past. Which, mostly was racked up by a Republican House, a Republican Senate and a Republican President in the last 8 years.

In 2007 only 5 cents of every dollar spent by the federal government was borrowed. In just four short years, that number has skyrocketed to 43 cents.

Democrats had control of both houses of CONgress beginning in January 2007 until Republicans reclaimed the House in January 2011.

The national debt when Obama took office was less than $11.3 trillion. Then in February 2009, after having taken the oath of office in January, Obama had the debt limit raised to $12.1 trillion. In December 2009 he had it raised again to $12.4 trillion, and then in February 2010 he had it raised to $14.3 trillion.

Obama has increased the debt $3 Trillion since taking office and it will be closer to $6 Trillion by the time the debt ceiling is raised.
