Christian-X is threatening to destroy our economy in order to stop people from giving help to fellow citizens via the taxes we pay. The Republican base is made up of religious addicts. There is no cure for this, and Jesus did not even try. This is why he formed a brand new fresh religion, free of raging addicts.

Obama appealed to members of the Business Roundtable yesterday to use their influence with lawmakers to break the stalemate.
“You have never seen, in the history of the United States, the debt ceiling, or the threat of not raising the debt, being used to extort a president or a governing party and trying to force issues that have nothing to do with the budget and have nothing to do with the debt,” Obama said in Washington.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce urged House members in a letter yesterday not to risk a government shutdown and to raise the debt limit in a “timely manner.”
