CHQ Poll: Should Congress raise the debt ceiling?

By CHQ Staff -- 5/31/11

Memo to veteran Republican congressmen:  Think twice before taking the easy way out and voting to “go along” one more time in raising the debt ceiling.

Memo to Tea Party freshman congressmen:  Don’t even think about going back on your pledges to the conservatives who elected you!

As, once again, Congress is being asked to raise the nation’s debt ceiling or risk default, we asked you:  What is your response?  Should Congress raise the debt ceiling?

There was no wiggle-room in your answers.

An overwhelming 95% of you answered, “No. I agree with Senator Jim DeMint that we must allow no further increases in the debt ceiling until the Balanced Budget Amendment is passed. Otherwise Congress will just spend the money without any budgetary reform.”

Only 4% of you said, “Maybe. I agree with House Speaker John Boehner that any rise in the debt ceiling must be matched by spending cuts that are equal to or greater than the additional debt.”

And a lonely 2% of you answered, “Yes. Default would have terrible consequences for the U.S.”

Congress take note.

debt ceiling

It sure feels good to have all debts paid. Why be slave to the lender. Pay your bills and do not raise the debt ceiling. Call it a billectomy as you cut the cancerous debt away.

It is not hard to cut back

It is not hard to cut back when you spend more money in two years, than all the presidents prior together. The bozo is trying to break America. History will show that he is not and never can be a President of our United States.

Raise Debt Limit

Absolutely not!! Congress must do the hard work of cutting back on spending and paying down our debt.

This Administration is out of control and not working to fix the problems we have! They have an agenda

and that's all they care about.


Agree 100%.  Do not raise the debt ceiling.

Raise Debt Limit

In absolutely no shape or form should the debt ceiling be raised again without major serious cuts. If the incumbent repubs do not stick to their guns and hold out for solid cuts then we need to remember them and vote them out. They are just another type of RINO (Republican Incumbent Needing Outsourced!).  We can no longer afford Obama's trips. He is too expensive so we need him voted out in 2012 as well to help reduce the nation' s debt. He is too pricey!!! Republicans need to be Pro Active and Not Re-Active and stand firm on this for the sake of our nation and the taxpayers.

Dept Ceiling

If you raise the dept ceiling, don't run for office again.

We (you and I) win our seats

We (you and I) win our seats back and we can start over with a more experienced but copied Constitution. All court battles will start over again with better results.

 This story and all the cute comments and slams will mean nothing in less than 30 years. Invasion is of no consequence as long as the two parties can hold their power. The powers can change names and faces this too matters not. People’s desire for power will always remain a constant.

 It is irrational to think that any single payer social program will work. It is irrational for nations to tax its way out of poverty. It is irrational to help overpopulated poorer nations by becoming one. It is irrational to believe that a power convinced that you have nowhere else to go will do your biding. 

 A true Conservative and a true Liberal agree on one thing though for different reasons. Any single payer social program is a nutty idea! Now each believes that it’s not so nutty as long as their side is managing it. Pubs and Dems call rational people cruel, heartless nut cases. Rational and irrational also no longer hold true meaning.

 Replace the powers with citizens that can be immediately removed by citizens and never serve for a life time. We must take control ourselves.  Please join with us at you might be able to click on my name. This will take you to my link page that links to, and

Debt Ceiling






Unconscionable arguments for raising the debt limit.

It is unconscionable to raise the debt limit.  That is what got us to 14 plus TRILLION dollars in debt in the first place.  A close look at ALL the unconstitutional programs to see where cuts can be made is the order of priority and THEN as  the debt is reduced, the debt limit should also be reduced to prevent EVER reaching this sad state of the economy again.  The FED has caused nothing but disintegration of our economy since it was formed in 1913.


no to raising the debt limit, lets try something new STOP THE DAMN SPENDING

The Debt Ceiling

When we talk about the debt ceiling we are obviously talking about money.  The purpose of money is to serve as an honest measure, a convenient means of conducting voluntary transactions between individuals.  If both sides deem it worthy of trust - then money can perform its primary function.  But if the value of money is somehow compromised by government control over its issuance, then it loses its reliability.  If too much money has been issued, so that the value of money is subtly diluted, it can cause people to misinterpret price signals and make wrong decisions.  If money garbles the message of actual demand and supply, it undermines the way free markets are supposed to work.  Ultimately, the excessive issuance of money and credit results in a financial "bubble" that causes severe damage to the real economy when it finally bursts.

Raising the Debt Ceiling



Debt Ceiling

We, the American people, are already in debt up to our eyeballs solely because the Democratic Party, and some Republicans, CANNOT control their spending!!! Our grand children's grandchildren will still be paying on this debt! That is NOT right!!!

Debt Ceiling

If a repub. votes to raise the ceiling don't plan to run again.  If a Dem votes to I hope the same can be said from there party.  If we don't stop Obama's spending tiraide he will purposfully ruin this nation.  It is what he is working for and what he wants.  If you want proof go and research all the things he has said about America and how embarrassed he and his wife are for being American.  I truly believe this president should be impeached!

NO, Do Not Raise The Debt Celilin

We cannot afford the interest on the debt now, will it help to raise the amout of debt we have?   NO!!! Don't raise the  Debt Ceiling!!!


I don't know how many times we have to say this...

Don't raise the blanking debt ceiling......... :(


We, the people, have to keep our spending in check and live within our individual budget.  Congress is spending OUR money and they seem to think there is no bottom to the barrel, WRONG.!!  They have hit the bottom.  So cut out all these special interests and stop sending money to foreign countries who despise the USA.  Let them tend to their own finances.

Don't raise the Debt Ceiling

I have a way ti fix Congress, Social Security, Medicare. I'f you want to review the letter reply to me at; [email protected]


Roger Putman


First of all, we would not default on our debts, as there is enough revenue from the taxpayers coming in daily to pay our bills. In order not to completely collapse economically, our government at every level must stop the spending, and reduce taxes. This is just economic common sense, and has worked each time it is done, in contrast to increased taxes and spending, which have only exacerbated an economic spiral into the red ink abyss. VOTE AGAINST RAISING THE DEBT CEILING.


America has maxed out its credit cards

Maxed out credit cards are of no value; cut them into pieces and toss them into the garbage. Obama and his hacks will scream bloody murder. Chucky Schumer will predict dire consequences and as usual he will be dead wrong. Because they cannot manage America's  finances is all the more reason to take away the source of their play money. At this very moment America's Debt is over 14 Trillion Dollars and rising very rapidly. How do we stop that?  Easy, destroy the governments credit cards. Wiser heads will prevail. The monopoly game is OVER!


Please, Please do NOT raise the ceiling!!!!


Ther is no wiggle room. Stay the course and hold the ceiling. Spending must be cut and there is no wiggle room there either. My money is important to me and it is my money they are spending. They think it is their money. WRONG!!



Debt Ceiling

Please, Please, do NOT raise the debt ceiling.
