Obama is the problem, helped by clones Pelosi and Reid
Tony - seems to be a glitch in poll. At least on mine, Can only see/ make comments if I vote "political". Results look as if app records "fiscal" votes, maybe too many as I voted "fiscal" several times before testing what happens if vote "political"
I disagree with the premise of the question. The responsible thing would be for Congress, like everybody else on the planet, to set a budget and live within it's confines. Want a pet project for your reelection? Put it in the budget or let it go.
I don't understand how that's disagreeing with the premise? It sounds like you think the answer should be "fiscal"
FACT: John Boehner Voted 19 Times to Raise the Debt Ceiling for Bush by $4 Trillion
FACT: Boehner is an idiot.
FACT: the iPhone 5S is the most revolutionary phone ever.
FACT: Scotty is a shameless fanboy
FACT: the GOP base wants to change the subject when you talk about FACTS.
FACT: Bacon is the greatest food item ever.
FACT: Scotty is what he eats
FACT: I like beer.
FACT: Senator Obama voted not to raise the debt ceiling
Fact❗️ <---- is how that's supposed to look.
Abo is correct.
Skinner is also correct.
FACT: Obama is spending like a drunken sailor.
FACT: Abolitionist cares only about facts that make Republicans look bad rather than looking at the big picture.
FACT: Abolitionist cares only about widening the divide between the two parties.
United we stand, divided we fall. If we all work together, we can get through anything. Yes, changes absolutely must be made, but changing will never happen with this level of division.
Had to pick political to get in here but completely disagree
It messed up for me too. And I agree, I would have picked the other option.
I see we are using a Russian voting app.
Bush turned a record surplus into a record deficit While Boehner, Cantor, & Ryan voted for everything Bush asked for.
How does that relate to the question?
This question is about spending, go away if you don't understand
Last I checked, it was about what was the bigger problem: division or spending. As far as I can tell you are doing nothing to help the division aspect. Do you understand the question now?
Ronald Reagan raised the debt ceiling 18 times during his 8 years as President. Not only did the country survive after he tripled the national debt, from 1 trillion to 3 trillion, but he is considered today by many to have been a "GREAT " President.
Am I the only one experiencing a glitch?
No you're not
You're only experiencing a glitch if you select the correct answer. :)
I see both as huge issues to be honest.
I thought the same, matt.
I just did a debt ceiling poll if you want to check it out.
STONE COLD FACT: The deficit is falling at a fastest rate in 60 years bit.ly/12OJphH
STONE COLD FACT: Obama has added six trillion in new debt, more than all previous Presidents combined.
That's pretty easy to do considering how large our deficits were in the late years of Bush and early years of Obama. Regardless I'm not going to be satisfied until the debt shrinks.
Scotty doesn't understand the difference debt and deficit
Deficit: Obama spending more than we bring in.
Debt: The culmination of Obama's spending spree.
Being fiscally responsible is an ongoing issue whereas raising the debt ceiling is a one time type of issue.
It will let you vote fiscal, the links to results and comments are just above the question, and it looks like you haven't voted, at least for me.
This poll is skewed AND slanted!
The poll has went haywire.
I agree it won't let me vote for Fiscal
Short-term: Not raising will cause more problems.
Long-term: Raising it repeatedly and continuously while not addressing spending will lead to a complete collapse.
^ this ^
Agree. We have to compromise. Raise the debt ceiling and lower expenses considerably so that we don't have to raise the ceiling every few months.
Given the current situation, I would have to accept the short-term political consequences and not raise it. There will be short-term pain for some, but the long-term gets closer every day and it's almost here.
It's not letting me vote fiscal... :(
That's so weird! I wonder why... I hope we can figure it out
I was assuming it was only Massachusetts, but it looks like we are the only two who can't from here. Hmm
I can't either. Won't let me.
Outstanding question. Fiscal is the answer. The bigger problem is the spending, not our unwillingness to simply rubber-stamp more debt ceiling increases.
Are you sure?
Yeah. I was the first comment
