Welfare state behind debt fight–Michael A. Walsh – NYPOST.com

July 19, 2011

The debt-ceiling cage match is the culmination of the Democrats’ 75-year-long fight to establish a voting bloc of dependents under the false flags of “compassion” and “social justice.” It’s sapped our strength, created a welfare mentality and, if unchecked, will reduce us to a nation of aging, resentful beggars with eyes cast permanently toward Washington.

You betcha! This isn’t about servicing debt and defaulting on our debt, it’s about being able to continue servicing the plethora of “social safety nets” engineered by those who find the nanny state necessary for the continuing existence of mankind…

    Um, most of the debt was run up by Republicans: Reagan, Bushx2… See those unfunded wars, Part D, trillions in tax breaks were put on the credit card… The “culmination of the Democrats'” claptrap is factually wrong, my friend. Both parties are to blame, ultimately, but the debt ceiling debacle is not what conservatives are trying to make it: a Democratic thing.

    And what is “unchecked”?? The only way it goes “unchecked” is if the Republicans decide to take their ball and go home, the cowards. Which looks more and more of a possibility…

    How strange. I actually find myself at least partially agreeing with one of Mike’s statements. Yes, both parties are to blame, and the debt ceiling isn’t a democrat thing. All have a share in the failure of economic policies that brought us to this point. The one thing in common from both parties that contributed to the problem is SPENDING. Whle D and R share blame, the democrats are currently pursuing a strategy of continued spending that renders the debt ceiling somewhat akin to the piece of paper being used to stop .50 cal rounds. Useless. The spending pace we are on now can’t continue.

    Cowards? Which takes more courage, to just keep promising “free” stuff to people that you know you don’t have to pay for, and you know you probably can’t deliver, or to risk the wrath of the recipients of those freebies when you tell them they won’t be so “free” anymore, that they never have been “free,” and the bill has finally come due?
