Hmmm...you know, I'm beginning to think that Congress doesn't have our best interests at heart here......maybe I'm wrong?

Given who the president is, an economic disaster is more of a foregone conclusion.  It is what the people voted for.

I don't see how this plan could backfire and turn America into a third-world country overnight.
 
2017-09-05 12:19:07 PM  
At this point I've lost track of whether we're currently in an economic / other type of disaster.

Incidentally, I work in an office where the ubiquitous TV screens are constantly showing CNN.

Top Three Rationalizations of Nov. 10, 2016:

"Oh, it'll be all right, he'll grow into the job."

"He and Congress will find a way to get things done -- c'mon, they're in the same party."

"He'll learn pretty fast that you can't govern the way you campaign."

How's that "HOPE" and "CHANGE" workin' out for ya, Republican faithful? Thanks for ruining our country, you ignorant tick-turds. There's no way the necessary tasks get done this month, because virtually all GOP Congresscritters are beholden to their loudest / wealthiest / Fox-tainted voters.

I have three or four Spanish-speaking friends who do this. Spanish always uses "j" for the "h" sound.

You're still using glassware?

If anything, it's time to start drinking directly from the bottle.

On the other hand, I do love my spherical ice in a rocks glass.

With Irma bearing down on Florida, it would be of their best interests to get this over with.

/of course they won't
//they're Republicans

Maybe Irma will take a sudden swing north.

And when the Democrats fail to fix the mess created in a year the idiots will put the Republicans back in control.

Gee... I thought the business sector hated "uncertainty" in the markets. 

This whole presidency has been one big clusterfark of "uncertainty".

Trump already backed down on his threats.  We'll get a CR that goes to December or so.  Looks like no retroactively paid vacation for me this year.

The tasks will get done because enough dems will do what they think is the right thing.

The right thing at this point is for every dem to vote "present" or "no" on everything put forth and let the right either govern or be responsible for the disaster.

Does "Mom" have an ex-wife, too? Because that's who I blame when I need a rationalization.

Even if Trump has said he's ok with the debt ceiling being increased and will sign it, the Rs in Congress still need to get their thumbs out of their asses and actually DO something to make it happen.

\dunno what the odds are, but I'm going with against

Drugs. You can wipe with a leaf, but the person with a pharmacy can bargain for anything.

Let's be clear: if every registered Democrat - including all elected Democratic officials - left the United States tomorrow, 50 years from now they would still be held personally responsible for every decision in government by the American electorate.
