Jay Carney: Republicans Threaten World Economy

From the Politico:

Jay Carney: GOP threatens world economy

By TAL KOPAN | October 1, 2013

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday that Republicans are threatening the foundation of the global economy.

“What we see happening with this Republican strategy is a willingness to threaten the very foundation of the world’s greatest economic power, the economy that basically stabilizes the entire world economic system, and that is a very risky proposition,” Carney said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe."

We thought it was rightwing talk radio that fear mongered.

Carney said the fear is that the government shutdown is “the trailer to a movie” of the strategy Republicans are going to apply to the upcoming debt ceiling, which the U.S. will reach on Oct. 17.

“This strategy the Republicans in the House have employed, one faction of one party of one House of one branch of government, that seems to be driving this Republican train, their strategy seems to be to do what they’ve done for the funding of government to the issue of whether or not the United States of America will pay its bills,” Carney said.

If that came to pass, Carney said, the result would be serious.

“We would default, and the consequences of that are unknowable but they are catastrophic without question,” Carney said…

Lest we forget, Senator Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling twice under President Bush. First, in March 2006, and then again in September 2007. In fact, Mr. Obama was joined in his vote by Joe Biden, Harry Reid, and other top Democrats, who all voted against raising the debt limit.

And even though the Democrats pretended it was over their concern at runaway spending (LOL!), it was really just an attempt to prevent Bush from funding our soldiers on the battlefield in Afghanistan and Iraq. Which they hoped would make us lose the war in Iraq.

All in the hope of picking up more seats in the 2006 midterms and the White House in the 2008 elections. But what the Republicans are talking about doing now is completely outrageous.

    Lest we forget, it came down to one man, at one bench, that is a small fraction of one branch of government who, against the will of the American people, ruled this monstosity known as ObamaCare was constitutional under the commerce clause of the constitution of this great nation, because he considered it a tax, against the arguments of the regime, and thus thrusting the US into a form of what can only be called tyranny.
