The Debt Ceiling Deal is a Trojan Horse
This Debt Ceiling deal disaster happened because the President did not evoke the 14th amendment in the face of terrorist tactics by the GOP. GOP contrived a crisis-classic (Chicken Little) scare tactics-and manipulated the Democrats accordingly. The deal will send the economy into a double dip recession and give budget power to a cabal of 12 in Congress with the delusion that an up or down vote will produce results remotely in line with the best interests of Americans. It will open the floodgates for severely cutting entitlement programs while the wealthy and corporations continue to circumvent taxes. It will mark the begining of the end of democracy in America and accelerate America's march to Banana Republic status engineered by the GOP. Options: revolution.
