Just before the deadline in May, the GOP will give Obama everything he wants, while telling us they are doing the opposite. We already know this game. Just stop with the theatrics already. Every single person in Washington is a liar and a thief. Every single one of them.

Yep, this has become a government of the graft, for the graft and by the criminal. Doesn't it seem odd that the guy running the Treasury is a multi-year tax cheat who only paid his back taxes so he could get into a position to siphon off the tax revenue? Sorry this government has become the largest danger to this country borrowing trillions to pay themselves and their buddies trillions.

Despite talking for months about using the debt ceiling as leverage to get Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to pass a budget, spending cuts and entitlement reform, House Republicans are expected to vote on a temporary debt ceiling increase tomorrow.

House leaders on Monday unveiled legislation to permit the government to continue borrowing money through May 18 in order to stave off a first-ever default on U.S. obligations. It is slated for a vote on Wednesday.  

Although President Obama is getting a temporary break from the debt ceiling fight as a result of this...
