Apparently, these two clowns are involved in the Senate discussions with the Spite House. Collins (woman on the right) is what some might call a liberal Republican. I call her a Dem wannabe, or a Snowe clone. Graham is what some may call …. well, insane, for lack of a better term.
“I’ve never seen the president, quite frankly, more open to the idea of meaningful reforms to address why we’re in debt in terms of entitlement reform,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News, while calling on his own party to consider the prickly issue of taxes.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who is helping lead the effort on the Senate side to craft an alternative proposal, said she presented a plan to the White House that would fund the government for six months and raise the debt ceiling through the end of January.
She said Obama did not say, “that’s a great idea.” But Collins said there were discussions about both short- and long-term approaches. She called on Obama to put out a debt-ceiling plan of his own.
This nation is screwed if either one of them significantly contribute to the conversation.
A more reasonable person had this to say.
Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., was less hopeful about the state of play. He said the meeting was not very encouraging. Though Coburn said talking is better than the alternative, the senator said he “didn’t think” it helped address the debt-ceiling crisis.
The Repubs senators, like the House Reubs should just go home, talk to their constituents, and tell Zero to call them when he’s serious about negotiating. Instead, we’ve got some tool from S.C. babbling about taxes?
