Boehner abandons efforts to reach comprehensive debt-reduction deal

Don't look now but the Republicans are caving, as usual. It should not be a surprise that the Democrats have had success in destroying our country for over 100 years - the Republicans don't ever try to stop it! The debt ceiling should not be raised, under any circumstances!!! We will not default if it is not raised. The default argument is another Democrat lie. All they do is lie, cheat and steal.

The debt ceiling should be lowered, actually, and the feds should be forced to live within their means as they payoff the largest debt in human history. Where are leaders with common sense and backbone? Are there any in this country anymore or do we only have gutless, spineless cowards who don't care about their country? Unfortunately, I know the answer to that question. Goodbye, America. At least, you lasted a little over 200 years before the politicians succeeded in destroying you. I just hate to watch it happen. - Reggie

House Speaker John A. Boehner abandoned efforts Saturday night to reach a comprehensive debt-reduction deal worth more than $4 trillion in savings, telling President Obama that a midsize package was the only politically possible alternative to avoid a first-ever default on the nation’s mounting national debt.

Boehner (R-Ohio) told Obama — who is hosting a key meeting Sunday evening on the debt issue — that their efforts to “go big,” as the speaker says, were stymied by the toughest issues: taxes and entitlements. Democrats continued to insist on tax reforms that would not pass muster in the conservative-dominated House, and Republicans wanted cuts to programs such as Medicare and Social Security that Obama and Senate Democrats would oppose.
