Here's my take on this political bantering going on with the debt ceiling: Democrats don't want this thing to reappear during the election because they know it will kill Obama's chances of getting re-elected. That's it, that's all this all about. I sit here and listen to the Dems in the Senate complaining about Republican's refusal to compromise - that's nice, but BOTH sides are unwilling to compromise on the key issues.
I'm gonna tell you one thing for sure: if whatever comes out and they really do kill the deduction for mortgage interest, the whole lot of them can go jump in a lake. I'll vote for Ron Paul for president if it comes down to that and I will vote for anyone BUT an incumbent. I'm not a single issue person, really, but they have already done away with a lot of deductions, the mortgage interest deduction is the last of the Mohicans. What ALL of them should be focusing on is cutting spending, period. If they would all shut up and get off the national TV junk and get busy, maybe they could actually get something done. At this point? Let the "default" date set by the President come and go and see what happens.
I am half leaning towards going and looking at another travel trailer today. This one allegedly has everything working in it. Water, electricity, propane. I dunno yet, just going to go look at it. I am trying to talk the lady down in the price. I could get rid of the thing sitting out there and recoup 2/3rd's of the loss and eat the rest.
I got out of the writing mode and into other things. I'm out of it.
