“US Debt-Ceiling Fight Could Complicate ‘Grand Bargain’ Talks”


DEFENSE NEWS

 

WASHINGTON — The White House and senior Republican lawmakers acknowledge they remain far apart on a “grand bargain” fiscal deal to address the defense sequester cuts. But a recurring Washington issue could further complicate striking such a deal: a pending partisan fight over the nation’s borrowing limit.

Some on Capitol Hill expect both chambers will enter contentious talks about whether to raise — or perhaps again temporarily suspend — the nation’s borrowing limit in late summer.

Some analysts say the nation will hit its borrowing limit in August or September.

That would force lawmakers to battle over the debt limit before its annual August recess, set to run from Aug. 3 until after the Labor Day holiday in early September.

That timing could coincide with talks between President Barack Obama and Senate Republicans about the kind of grand bargain needed to lessen or replace the last nine years of the national defense and domestic sequestration cuts.

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, one of more than a dozen Senate Republicans Obama has been courting in pursuit of a grand bargain, told Defense News in late March that whatever solution the two sides come up with needs to be in place by the time Congress leaves for its August recess.

According to the Tennessee Tea Party, the image of our founding fathers must not become tarnished. But pretending that the years of slavery and genocide in our nation’s history never happened isn’t protecting anyone. As far as I’m concerned, it’s basically racism.

Omitting slavery from history is equivalent to erasing segregation, Jim Crow laws, and the entire Civil War! Slavery is a huge part of American history whether the Tennessee Tea Party wants to admit it or not.”
