1. Look at the smirk

On that fuckwad’s face.

I can’t wait for the day we don’t ever have to see his ugly evil mug again.

7. The timing had crossed my mind.

A short term delay in a crisis results in... a crisis.

There must be something favorable in it for McConnell for him to have agreed to it. That might be it.

13. He wants the resolution to specify $$$ not time.

This is per MSNBC. The Rethugs want to be able to use the $$$ amount against the Dems in campaign commercials next year:

"Look Ma, the Dems voted for a $$$$$$$$$ Trillion dollars for something"

Holding the GLOBAL Economy at ransom so they can make attack ads against da libruls.

He needs to burn in some hell forever, and his name needs to be pulled through the muck for eternity. His legacy that he is an evil loser loser loser.

I'll be very pleased when he stops being relevant.

Given his past actions, I'd put nothing past him. Hell, or a similar arrangement, would be fitting.

19. One googolplex

Personally, I think the Democrats should lean into that Republican narrative and set the debt limit to one googolplex...of pennies.

Let the Republicans try to describe to the public how much money that is when the public can't grasp the size of the number to start with. And even if they could, it's obvious the Democrats couldn't possibly plan on spending that amount (enough to buy everything in the solar system many times over).

And when the number sounds like Google (which to most folks isn't scary).

And when it's in pennies rather than dollars (which makes it sound a lot smaller).

11. We went through this before when Pres. Obama was in office

mcdick has no morals, no regard for the country. He must play his games, at the expense of the people and the country. He is a disgusting, foul p-o-s.

6. Only two months, but sounds like Democrats didn't meet any of McConnell's

“conditions”. Just a straight ~2 month blink by McConnell.

8. I might be wrong but I think Mitch blinked after the rich powers that be told him to stop the crap..

... because if we had a Govt. shutdown and the market goes down they would lose billions.
And now Biden can use reconciliation to pass his infrastructure plan.

9. This was not a deal to overt a shutdown

This was the debt limit increase, so the USA didn't default on its debt. It would be catastrophic to default on our country's debt, the full faith of the US government is what drives our economy.

16. Really pleased to see this progress

And good news about the debt ceiling.

Although it is basically all finance and economy, I still think that defaulting on debt would also be a huge national security risk. If I understand correctly, a default will mean a stock market crash, stoppage of all Social Security retirement checks, bread/food lines, homelessness beyond imagination, loss of countless jobs, exacerbated lack of healthcare, etc.

I see it as a global equivalent of nuclear war.

Because we have pols in DC who are this corrupt and sociopathic.

Or am I being too melodramatic?

17. Not too melodramatic at all.

It would be catastrophic and no one would benefit from that happening which is why it always gets settled before it happens.

18. Mitch sees our poll numbers so he'll be a good boy now

The right is poisoning politics with its whisper campaign about mask freedom and the school mandates.

In fact once they were allowed to use "mandate" we were cooked. We should have called it 'mask protection'.

We are sometimes so challenged at this game.
