Default Idiotic bill reeks of GOP toejam

Idiotic bill by clueless Republicans in the House is embarrassing. They continue to make fools of themselves when it was clearly evident during the Bush years that Republicans know nothing about the economy or balancing budgets.

These Pubs sat silent picking the toejam out of their toes while Bush spent mightily and wrecked the country economically. This bill obviously one that stinks. Shameful times we live in now with the current Republican representation. The bill reeks of GOP toejam.

They know the senate will quash it or Obama will veto it that's why they passed it. Now they can say well we passed SOMETHING and the dems vetoed it now the balls in their court and scream to the media how they tried to save 6 trillion but no. More political games. Dems will play one back and throw something up they know the repubs won't vote for and on it will go. Meanwhile Obama keeps getting more enraged as his vacation plans keep getting put back.

They know this bill won't go through. They are laying the whole thing into Obama and the dems lap. Lets see what they do to counter. They're already shifting attention away to DOMA to keep folks attention away and will probably play the casey anthony trump card soon.

Finally the GOP is calling the Dems' bluff when the Dems have not passed a budget in a long time for political reasons

Just watch, the debt ceiling will be raised, if historical indicators are anything to go on.

And eventually USA will default, and take the living standards of Americans down with it.

Does this mean they're ready to stop playing juvenile games and do something constructive?

As has become their habit lately, the GOP is off doing their thing without working with the rest of the government even though they know the Senate will kill it. It is called PANDERING folks. If they do not want to wheel and deal then nothing will get passed and if you believe the voters will blame the Dems you are either a politcal hack or and idiot, you pick.
Just have to add, The Blaze is an ultra right-wing rag not worth the time of day.
