Debt Limit Debacle: Who Won and Who Lost? (Video)

Congress appears to be on its way toward passing a deal that will end the government shutdown and raise the debt limit, at least until next year. But it's tough to find any winners.

Al Qaeda, the Islamists, Putin and China are the big winners. Everyone else lost. Send the Tea Tard economic terrorists to GITMO!

Winners - those jerks in DC. Losers - Us frustrated voters. Maybe it wasn't a clear win-win for DC, but sure was a clear loss for the rest of us. How much longer do we have to put up with these jerks and their doing what they want and to hell with the rest of us?

Sheri, until we can get progressives out in force to VOTE them out. Progressives are not good at voting in non-Presidential-election years. If you want them out, sign up to volunteer to get out the vote in 2014 and encourage everyone you can to do the same.

Vote all tea baggers and republicans out of office in every state at every opportunity. They are a blight on America.

The people lost $24 billion. Hopefully the republicans lose their jobs.

Huess what people...we get to go through this all over again next year - in just a few months. Wonder why I'm sweating up here in MN?? All that money will have to made up from somewhere and I don't see any GOPTP giving up their "essential" salaries to pay any of it back. As always it will be those least able to afford it that will have to pay it back...while the MegaCorps, the 1% and their Toadies sit in comfortable splendor...

Jason(s), I agree with both of you. This is not a game and the people lost.

It just shows how screwed up our leaders have become. To me, that represents pretty much all of them on both sides. They all operate for themselves.

It used to be what was good for America was good for all her citizens or was intended to be. That just is not the case any more.

Go team... I see that logic here all the time. The only thing is whoever speaks it leaves out half of the American people in that thought. It's a shame and will lead to our end eventually.
