Ted Cruz: Only Democrats are threatening default on the debt

Tea party backed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Sunday insisted only Democrats were threatening default on the debt even though he has vowed not to raise the debt ceiling until Congress passes a balanced budget amendment. “Let me be very clear about this,” Cruz told Fox News host John Roberts.…




“Let me be very clear about this,” Cruz told Fox News host John Roberts. “I do not support default on the debt. We should never default on the debt, and the only players on Washington who are threatening default on the debt are President Barack Obama and Harry Reid.”

(Liar?)

1. There's a reason he's on Pox

He's the kind of whackadoodle we've come to expect out of Texas, a real dimwit who is going to give Gohmert and Barton a run for the Craziest Congressman from Texas Award.

4. So it starts!!

We all knew the fake propaganda would start on the fifth. Just amazing how gullible the sheeple are when it comes to the facks about governmental finances. Here we go again,Rethugs have their Frank Luntz focus group talking points,and the chicken shit media does not challenge the validity or truthfullness of their statements. And that's the way it is. Wall Street got every damn thing they wanted in the so called fake fiscal cliff deal. Now they want your 401's and pensions and that my friends is the very bottom line. Make no mistake,that is what is going on behind the curtains.

Boner and McTurttle have poisoned the well so badly at this point in time,one doubts if any thing can really be accomplished. This is such a obvious racial hatred thing that McTurttle has for President Obama,that he will crash our nations economy just to save his sorry ass with the Kluckers. It's all about optics and sound bits towards the Teabillies and his Klucker voter base back home. Blissfully ignorant people.

11. Only a couple of days and the teabagger already has his strings being pulled. Classic R -- a

puppet. The teabagger mentioned certain anti-gun ideas as unconstitutional on Fox yesterday -- and morning joe criticized the teabagger regarding the supreme court vs heller case.

12. Ted Cruz is a piece of shit. I endured his appalling ads all through election season.

He's vile, corrupt, and of course, a tea-bagger. His extreme views make him the perfect media darling. Giving him further validity by posting this crap is a waste of time.

After listening to his campaigning for months, all democrats in Texas know he's lying through his teeth. Heck even the Teabaggers ought to know POB and the dems are trying to avoid anymore unnecessary drama. Denial!!!!

17. Raising the debt ceiling is dangerous

 

What happens in your own life if you have spent every penny you have, charged all you charge cards to the limit, borrowed every penny you can from relatives and the bank and everywhere else you can get it, but you keep spending? We can't pay the debt now. We are borrowing almost half of every dollar we spend in this country. How can that possibly ever work out to be good for us?

18. You might need to take a step back

and realize that the debt ceiling has nothing to do with money we WANT to spend, it is money that we ALREADY spent, and we now need to pay for it.

2nd, you can never ask Government to run like a household. It's the lamest argument out there.
