#1 Looks like the anti-Unitarian Unitarian GOP-Right will side wid histoire' + "safe" politics + vote for it, once again proving both the validity of being "chicken littles" during every shutdown, + why the US Debt burden can never go down ever again - ITS ONLY A QUESTION OF MUCH PORK = MASSIVE EXCESSIVE/PROHIBITIVE SPENDING WASHINGTON WANTS TO ENGAGE IN EVER POLITICAL YEAR OR PERIOD.

Final confirmation will come from the Democrat POTUS Bammer himself, whom has times said that he will not support any temporary raise in the debt ceiling - which is what this Senate bill is - but demands a full-scale/funded,
"clear" or "clean" budget bill.

The Bammer + Democrats must know that the GOP will attempt to use this extension to bring Bammercare + Immigration to the debate forefront - AS AN ALLEGED MARXIST-ANARCHHIST-GLOBALIST, THE BAMMER CAN PREEEMPT THE GOP BY VETOING THIS SENATE BILL AS ABOVE, OR HE CAN KNOWINGLY ENGAGE THE GOP FULL MONTY COME SPRING 2014 IN ANTICIPATION OF ANOTHER DEMOCRAT VICTORY VEE "SCARED GOP" FRENCH SURRENDER GOING INTO THE 2014 CAMPAIGNS.

In any case, be it by full-scale debt ceiling increase andor QE, the USA will no longer be officially or realitically able to keep its Debt-to-GDP ratio under 100% = absolute/total accounting bankruptcy save by Govt-wide mandatory order e.g. Obama-led "Executive Action".

WELCOME TO 2015 + OWG "GLOBALISM" + 1917 = 2013 BOLSHEVIK "OCTOBER REVOLUTION", AMERIKA!

MENSHEVIKS-VS-BOLSHEVIKS, and we all know what happened to the former via the latter.

EYES WIDE OPEN, NOT EYES WIDE SHUT.

#5 Have the Dems come up with a viable budget that can pass muster in the last five years? Is the budget figure just going to be left up to the PREZ to decide every couple of months? Are we operating on the basis of "Just give me what I want and no back talk?" Have we become an executive branch dictatorship with abetting by the Senate Majority Leader and the MSM?

#7 A Chinese agency has downgraded the US government credit rating from A to A-. What I can't understand is why would they continue to loan us money at all. They're gonna look pretty stupid when we default.

IIRC they've stopped buying bonds. They just want to clear their existing holdings (to suckers out there in the market, just like the mortgage paper racket before 2008). A lot of the bond sales are bought by the Treasury with fake the printing of money.
