(CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that Congress should hand over to President Barack Obama personal, unilateral authority to increase the limit on the U.S. government's debt.
At a Friday press conference, a reporter asked Pelosi if she agreed with a proposal made by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner that Congress give Obama the power to unilaterally increase the debt limit.
"Yes," she said.
When he met with members of Congress on Thursday to discuss a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff that is set to occur at the end of this year, Secretary Geithner suggested that Congress give Obama the personal power as president to lift the legal limit on the federal government's debt.
Amen...And that's exactly what Obama and the RATS want. It slays me that people like this are elected to represent us.
Try to keep informed.
So good old Nazi Pelosi must not remember what Bronco said in 2007 about Bush raising the debt limit...lthat it was a failure in leadership. So does she want Bronco’s presidency to fail? And if so, shouldn’t she be pilloried for that “racist” remark like Boehner was?
and the GOP response should be KMA.
M Kehoe: Give Jonna personal authority to Lift Limit on our Capital One Credit Card.
I wonder how Capital One feels about this?
We are doomed.
[Jonna=First lady=my wife]
Makes sense to me. Goldman-Sachs is already the fourth branch of government.
I wouldn’t have supported giving this kind of power to Ronald Reagan.
No. Spending is a constitutional power of the Congress as initiated by the House.
There is an obvious reason the Founders didn’t give power of the purse to the president.....they didn’t want a monarch.
Pelosi is an idiot. (But we already knew that.)
More proof that all democrats are for a socialist dictatorship. Democrats want to enslave all Americans taking away all our property and our freedom and putting it all under the control of Obama the piece of crap.
The democrat party is the main threat to our freedom and property and has been for the last 100 years.
Democrats control the media and the media has ruled the country for 100 years, Democrat controlled congress for 40 years before Republicans finally gained a simple majority in 1992 . But in those 40 years Democrat Congresses created most entitlements and government programs
> Heck, why not give him personal authority to suspend the Constitution too, while were at it.
They’re working on it. Now that Jamie Foxx has declared him to be god he may go all out. Hopefully God will step in, slap him in the face, and remind him that he’s only human
Agreed...No president should have that authority.
I’m with ya Pelosi, as long as all my credit cards get no limit either. Fair is fair, right?
Well said FRiend, all of it. :-)
Word is they’re trying to find a clever way to disarm the gun owners but they just won’t fall for it
In other words, there will be no limit at all.
Well it is even worse than that. Obama could actually tell congress that they can’t spend any money above the limit unless he approves it. Another element of blackmail used to control congress who always folds to Obama’s will, and the insatiable need for both to spend money.
The media will agree and the GOP will give in.
