         I hate to burst your bubble, but the debt is NOT the most important item on the agenda. With unemployment still at 7.9%, a new expanded free trade act on the table,  and a fruitless national security policy, appeasing bond traders with scare tactics about the Chinese is being embraced by both Obama and the House Speaker.

And a law that forbids raising the debt ceiling is the kind of Tea Party obstruction that did the country so much good  in July 2011. Even Cantor and Ryan wouldn’t  bring this up now, for Pete sake.
