Pres. Obama do not allow Repubilicans to take America Hostage

Do not allow the Republican House to take America hostage. Do not cave in to their demands to cut enormous amounts of government spending, while refusing to raise taxes before they reaise the debt ceiling. Yes, it is time to draw a line in the sand.

Why is this important?

Republicans refuse to raise the debt ceiling unless Obama makes large spending cuts, while opposing any tax increase whatsoever. If we hit the debt ceiling, the government will have to stop paying the spending currently financed by borrowing. Will it stop sending out Social Security checks? Stop paying doctors and hospitals that treat Medicare patients, or the contractors supplying fuel and munitions to our military, or the interest on the national debt? The President must stand up to this "taking America hostage;” he must defend the Constitution and not give control of government to a party with a majority only in the House. outcome about. In effect, they will have ripped up the Constitution and given control over America’s government to a party that only controls one house of Congress, but claims to be willing to bring down the economy unless it gets what it wants.
