But THEN the federal government wouldn't be a 'reliable provider' anymore....

THAT would be a cataclysm for the progressive movement (in both parties)....

Until THEY are driven (or chased) from DC this insanity will persist.....

Who cares, time to all go down. Tired of the game of Obama is playing.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner wrote a letter to Congress today that the federal government will once more hit the statutory debt ceiling on Monday, allowing an unspecified amount of time before the government will have to shut down crucial operations merely to service its debt.

In the letter, Geithner writes that the ceiling will be hit on December 31, and even though the Treasury Department will be able to undertake "extraordinary measures" to make sure the U.S. won't experience the full effect of hitting the ceiling, there's an unspecified and unknown amount of time before a government shutdown...
