The Lyrics

Go ahead, Mr. Ryan....... trigger an economic crisis. After 2012, you won't have enough votes to legislate an OUTHOUSE!
There'll be some hard dealings here
About some money that was spent
There'll be some hard budget cuts;
They want some more!
They just attacked the middle class
They wanna' stick it up our ass
It's just a caucus that is rotten to the core
No justice in the "House rules"
So all you Republican fools
Remember : Raise the debt ceiling or the economy floors
Raise the debt ceiling or the economy floors

There's been some strange going's on
"Where are the jobs?"; they're all gone
And the blue collar man don't work no more
They've got a racket on the Hill
It's just so hard to pass a bill
(unless they're financing another war.)
Is the entire House dense?
There's no Republican sense
Remember : Raise the debt ceiling or the economy floors
Raise the debt ceiling or the economy floors

And there's a Chamber in the Capitol building...
full of Congreesmen who haven't any shame
They're all in there talking trash;
Fillling pockets full of cash
When we all go broke, Paul Ryan gets the blame

Remember : Raise the debt ceiling or the economy floors
Raise the debt ceiling or the economy floors

Smells Like a Flip-Flop - April 18, 2011 - Report this comment
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion.That is “trillion” with a “T.” That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion. Numbers that large are sometimes hard to understand. Some people may wonder why they matter. Here is why: This year, the Federal Government will spend $220 billion on interest. That is more money to pay interest on our national debt than we’ll spend on Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. That is more money to pay interest on our debt this year than we will spend on education, homeland security, transportation, and veterans benefits combined. It is more money in one year than we are likely to spend to rebuild the devastated gulf coast in a way that honors the best of America. And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on. Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities." Senator Barack Obama Senate Floor Speech on Public Debt March 16, 2006
