I don't think you understand that EVEN with cuts, we STILL have to raise the debt ceiling.
Why don't you grasp this. EVERY Republican knows this. Boehner has said it many times that he knows we have to raise it.
Why don't you listen to him?
The United States would cease to exist without a strong federal government. Nuclear bombs, etc... EVERYWHERE.
