Open Thread | Debt Ceiling Update

This is what experience and competence get you:

So, the Democrats pulled it over the finish line in The House.😒😒🙄

Best part is that it takes care of the debt ceiling until 2025, which means no hostage taking in 2024.😒🙄

JoeyB ain’t new to this.
He true to this.

    Holy moly, jobs growth comes in hot again.

    Payrolls +339k
    Unemployment rate up a tick to 3.7% suggesting a weaker household survey
    Revisions are big: +52k for March, +41k for April.

    Don’t believe the doom-and-gloom talk.

    This economy is motoring along.

    So there was an agreement in place to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon and Trump ended that but if he’d been reelected he would’ve made a deal to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

    And the media misses this. Good lord.

    Good morning to everyone who’s relieved that we don’t have to deal w/the debt ceiling madness for 2 more years & can get down to the business of winning elections.

    * Keeping the White House
    * Expanding the Senate
    * Retaking the House
    * Local elections everywhere

    I really don’t care about the Squad voting against the bill.

    If these clowns can help sell the narrative that “both sides are unhappy” and make it easier for the bill to pass then so be it. Give them their 24-48 hours of attention and let’s move on.

    a thing i *would not* have predicted is that house republicans who demanded a sword of damocles for kevin mccarthy would be too impotent and feckless to actually use it.
