GOP Demands Mighty Big Tits For Few Tats

Mitch McConnell is a spokesperson for the latest round of fiscal disasters the GOP is trying to foist on the American public. He's going about it on behalf of his party in a very strange way.

In order to get the Republican votes necessary for a clean debt ceiling passage, here's what Senator McConnell, the Kentucky Fried Cuckoo bird had to say, according to The Hill:

“I think for the president to ask for a clean debt ceiling when we have a debt the size of our economy is irresponsible. So we ought to discuss adding something to his request to raise the debt ceiling that does something about the debt or produces at least something positive for our country,” he said on "Fox News Sunday."

Okay, ladies in gents, there seems to be need for some 'tit for tat' here. And never let it be said the GOP doesn't like tit or tat.

So what's the conservative right wing have planned? Hold onto your seats. It's the XL pipeline. Yup, that is what they're going to hold as hostage. Maybe not for the reasons you think, but for the reason future ex-Senator McConnell indicates: the GOP needs a reason to raise the debt ceiling. Well, that reason is the oil spill cleanup the XL pipeline is likely to cause us.

Don't take my word for it, just take a look at history. Go ahead. I dare you:

Over the past 28 years, the cost in dollars as well as lives and property loss due to oil spills could have been spent on wiping out our debt, totally. But instead, we're in the red. And why? Because we've ended up covering so much of the loss. Our federal government has most generously tried to keep private industry (big oil) from experiencing the losses they caused.

So once again, McConnell and the entire GOP want something to allow us to continue to run. Well, if they get the XL pipeline, it's just a matter of time before we have a disaster of untold size and loss. With it will come federal aid. That's the tit for this very thirsty GOP'ers who want to leave us in tatters. We bail out the XL disaster and those companies line the pockets of the GOP protectorate.

We need a clean debt ceiling bill. Not a polluted one the Republicans are pushing for. This is the time for Democrats and Obama to take a lesson from Nancy Reagan and the recent GOP party -- Just say no!
