@lket,

The benefit to the country is jobs (today/now) to build the pipeline if the Administration (specifically Obama) would take action to “green-light” it. In the Congress, the majority of both Democrats and Republicans are in agreement to build the pipeline built for this reason.

This is what the Republicans should do, as they cannot win this debt ceiling fight in the media, which is how politics is won today. Using this venue as a campaign platform to tell the American people what it is that they want to do is a good start to the 2014 campaign for Congress. Most Americans are on their side with the pipeline and Obamacare, which is still not popular with the majority. And the Republicans have for too long now continued to be accused of standing for nothing except opposing Obama. Republicans now need to present a new set of changes to give people reason to vote for them. How about a contract with America? Seems to me that worked once before.

I hope President Obama does not kick the can down the road.

I believe the program of the Tea Party and the republicans have for the American nation is a dead end and will only be resolved with a civil war.

The ordinary Americans will not have the riches to relocate as the rich and powerful have. Their only hope is for survival is if America itself survives and is able to cure the malady that afflicts the conservatives.

Republican Party before: "We have GOT to cut our deficit!"

Republican Party today: "Well.....uh, maybe next time!"

And thus the descent into madness continues....
