    He will cave to the Republicans before the REAL August 15 deadline, when the USA will actually run out of money to be able to pay ALL of its' bills. You'll see.

    This is really scarey. I want to know why they always wait til the last minute to come to an agreement. If they keep playing these games they're ALL going to lose votes.

    The republicans are holding this country hostage and are basically promising to further ruin our economy if obama doesn't meet their demands. I personally think the republicans have the upper hand since they seem to want to ruin this country anyways.

    I hope that obama Doesn't flinch. The Republicans need a reality check and obama should not bend to their will.

    Stacey, you are extremely misinformed at the very least. Turn the station from PBS sometimes and get both sides of the argument. Then you could formulate an actual opion of your own. Its not 'the good guys vs bad guys'. But I know your way is much easier.

      If you want Stacey to watch PBS like you. Why would such a well informed persons, like you be trolling Cnn???. Stacy may have overley passionate comment. But it is not about the facts sometimes. Its how some people are being made to FEEL. You can not help how helpless and stupid the GOP makes many people feel. They have played more games with us than the NFL. They want the WHITE house barr none. So matter where your info comes from. No one should be stupid enough not to know were the tools the GOP loves to handle.

    why not have a flat tax across the board???? everyone pays the same percent on the money EARNED! yes that means if you don't pay in you don't a refund! close the loop holes and make corporations pay a flat tax on the money earned.... there also needs to be a serious overhaul on the welfare department...
