Matheson and Chaffetz would rather push the US Economy over a cliff, because the necessary action wasn't "worthy" of their vote.

Time to get rid of those two.

By linking any debt-limit bill to the passage of a Balance Budget Constitutional Amendment that requires 2/3 vote in both the House and Senate is a guarantee that this country will default as such an Amendment is unlikely to pass. So instead of just playing politics, the Country might as well go into default sooner than later so that the American public can really see what the extreme Republicans are talking about when they say there won't be any real big impact if our Country defaults. At least then the public will have had plenty of time to gauge whether to support Republicans and Democrats based on what really happens even though it's likely that most of the rest of American will suffer. But in the end, perhaps will get a better set of representatives elected to Congress next year.

I think we should vote out anyone who votes either for or against Bohners or Reids bills. Rid both houses of the corruption and start new. It's time for a new (non Tea Party) revolution. I wonder if we can find any group of people who will work for the common good of the people instead of their own special interests.

Most importantly, Chaffetz and Pelosi voted the same away. Extreme politics rocks!!!
