GOP representatives don't want to raise the debt limit? Fine. The Federal Government still gets enough revenue to keep most of its essential functions going. Too bad about those Social Security checks that got replaced by a "Sorry, but your Representative voted against you getting a Social Security check this month, call his office at xxx-xxx-xxxx" notes, and the old people kicked out of their nursing homes to die on the streets because their nursing home got a note saying "Sorry, your Representative thinks you shouldn't be paid" rather than their Medicaid check, and so forth, but hey, clearly these people voted for these Representatives, so why should the *rest* of us suffer? These Republican assholes say we're spending too much? Fine. We'll eliminate all Federal spending -- in their districts. And see if they change their mind.
