Presidents and Kings Speak Out on Debt Ceiling Issue

Filed under: Politics,Uncategorized by News Staff at 12:02 pm on August 1, 2011

FRAMINGHAM, MA - With no final vote having taken place, and no actual legislation enacted, some camps are claiming victory, some decrying losses and most just knocking the process of raising the nation's debt ceiling so the country can continue to pay its bills.

President Obama released a 2 minute, 20 second YouTube video with his thoughts on the agreement the two major political parties have made.

There is still a slight chance that a Congressman or State Representative, possibly from the Tea Party -- or even a dissenting Democrat or Republican could attempt a filibuster when the actual votes are taken in Congress, derailing the vote and plunging the country back into economic uncertainty.

A rare tweet from former Framingham Town Manager, George King Jr. might have summed it up best-

Kind of a sad night for the country. The best description I have heard is "hostage politics".

What are your thoughts on the compromise agreement, (or the process) ?
