Robert Reich not concerned about height of debt ceiling, says 'O' should ignore

Students in former labor secretary Robert Reich’s classroom must not speak up very much; what else drives him to Twitter to be schooled so often? Piers “Musket” Morgan knows he can always turn to social media when he needs to brush up on the U.S. Constitution, so why not Reich?

If the debt ceiling isn’t in the Constitution, maybe we should double-check to see what else isn’t in there.

Cliff note: Medicare, Medicaid and health care aren’t in the Constitution either.

While we’re at it, we might as well teach those children the Constitution as well.

    Robert Reich-ch-ch-ch is such a nasty little commie drone.

    If you say a lie long enough it becomes the truth. Sad.

    The people of this country need to document who it is exactly keeps advocating for more fiscal irresponsibility. Reich your on the list. When the collapse occurs we the people will hunt you down and you’ll have a lot of explaining to do. Remember this president added 6 trillion dollars in new debt in four years. Nearly, more than all the other presidents combined. This can never be sustainable at this rate and eventually all our dollars will be worthless. Obama wants to talk about the math and yet here we are failing the simple economic math as a country for all of our children. Shameful.

    Don`t you have to taller than 5 feet to have an opinion ?

    Another Reich that hates America. Shocker

    Question(s) for Mr. Reich:

    What does it feel like staring other people in the navel during discussions at liberal cocktail parties?

    Do you feel oppressed for never being able to gaze down upon a woman’s full and pendulous breasts? And does this inability prejudice your beliefs?

    How does being so diminutive and often mistaken for a garden gnome make you seem so irrelevant, misinformed and stupid?

    How many years of kindergarten, grade, high school and college did you spend locked in your or some other student’s locker?

    If other liberals fail to take you so seriously. Why should more well informed Conservatives?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    Ignore the debt ceiling. Just remember who controls the purse strings of government.

  • Burt Zerker

    I doubt that there exists a ‘ceiling height’ anywhere, that Reich needs to concerned about.

  • my preciousss!!

    There will never be any real effort to lower our debt, regardless of what anyone in our government tells you. The bulk of our national debt is the interest on the money “borrowed” from the Federal Reserve banking cartel. Our politicians are selected by the financial industry so they’re certainly not going to bite the hand that feeds them. If we were to rid ourselves of debt then the richest, most powerful people on the planet will no longer be collecting trillions in interest. Does anyone really think they are going to let that happen? The whole point of spending more than we make is so we will be forced to borrow from the Federal Reserve. America is supposed to be the most powerful country in the world but we’re not even allowed to print our own money. People are so busy being party loyal sheep that they have failed to notice neither side wants to get a handle on the out of control Federal Reserve. Ron Paul is the only politician to even suggest that we audit the Fed but the media told you he was a kook so all of the sheep just lined up behind Romney and Obama. This country is going to continue its downward spiral until people start to understand Ben Bernanke and his klan have taken America hostage. Your presidents are puppets and your media (all media) is nothing more than a propaganda tool to keep you from asking the questions that actually matter.

    When you’re four-foot-nothing tall, you don’t worry about ceilings. Mental midget in a midget body. Would someone please just step on him really hard?

  • Finrod Felagund

    Exactly the kind of thing that if any Bush supporter had even hinted about, the Left would be screaming at the top of their lungs about abuse of executive power.

    Is it true that Robert Reich’s middle name is Third?

  • TocksNedlog

    You had me at “Robert Reich not concerned about height”.

  • People Corporation

    Let him arbitrarily raise it on his own. The result will be that its illegally raised, but he still won’t be able to “heighten” it with spending unless the GOP house gives him money to do the heightening. Then let him try and circumvent that. Then impeach him on both counts.

  • EOD

    Hey, Robert Reich, power not explicitly granted by name in the Constitution to the Government by the people is not allowed to be exploited by the Government against the people at the will of the Government.

    If the words Debt Ceiling are not found, and the word Debt is not found then Governmernt Debt is not allowed at all by the Executive Branch.

    The words Borrow and Credit are listed as powers exclusively given to the Legislative Branch.

    And just think he is teaching your children.

    Click Reich’s photo and look at his verbal diarrhea. He is the reason in the Clinton years people switched to living off of credit and driving up personal debt. We cease to be a saver society.

    I can’t wait for another round of the GOP pretending they didn’t contribute mightily to the massive debt we’re facing. Last time they caused our credit rating to get downgraded due to their intransigence, this time we might get a re-run of that since it’s in fashion to blame our debt on Obama even though he’s already made over $1.5 trillion in budget cuts with hundreds of billions more worth of cuts on the table.

    Grab your popcorn, this one’s gonna be good.
