The emotional highpoint of the disastrous debt-limit negotiations last month may have come in the Oval Office, after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor offered a proposal that left the President displeased. “Eric, don’t call my bluff,” Obama said, according to Cantor. “I’m going to take this to the American people.”
Well he certainly did take it to "the people", with the market crashing yet again that's billions of dollars lost. Billions lost will mean they will cut even more jobs etc. to make up for it. We "the people" needed that, thanks Eric Cantor for taking it to us!
