Obama wants unilateral debt ceiling control

King Barack wants the power to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling without a vote from Congress whenever it suits the needs his Most Royal Majesty. He wants to use his new power immediately to decree a new $50 billion Royal Boondoggle.

The administration also sought at least $50 billion in new economic stimulus spending.

Obama’s negotiators also sought the ability to raise the nation’s borrowing limit unilaterally. Currently, Congress must approve an increase in the debt ceiling, and it was an impasse over that issue that brought the country perilously close to default in 2011.

The administration’s proposal would put off across-the-board spending cuts for a year.

    Of course he does, he also wants a federal civilian enforcement section as powerful and well funded as the US Mititary, unuversal one payer healthcare, the ability to over ride congress, the house of representatives and the supreme court, to eliminate the two term limit, etc…after all it’s good to be king, after all stolen electins have consequences.

    Transferring debt ceiling control to the executive branch will remove the only tool Republicans have to stop the spending problem.

    I like the cigarettes and Red Bull. Outlawed for everyone else, of course.

    Should be Newports. Just saying.

    He’ll probably just take it. Congress won’t do anything. They let him do whatever he wants. They are feckless cowards.

    That is the problem, isn’t it?
    A bunch of pussies in the Republican party. Not an alpha male in the bunch. When you’re a pussy, you get steamrolled by a black metro-sexual on a girl’s bicycle.
