Obama: If Debt Ceiling isn’t Raised and Obamacare isn’t Funded America Will Turn Into a Banana Republic, or Something

Unsustainable, out-of-control, unchecked spending will impoverish America? What a joke — but then, jokes are all we’ve seen for several years.

President Obama contended that the United States would become reminiscent of a banana republic if Congress doesn’t raise the debt ceiling and provide funding for Obamacare in upcoming budget negotiations.

“This is the United States of America — we’re not some banana republic, this is not a deadbeat nation, we don’t run out on our tab,” the president said during a speech at a Ford plant in Liberty, Mo., on Friday afternoon. “We can’t just not pay our bills.”

Coming from the guy hell bent to turn American into a banana republic, this is like Michael Moore warning that if he isn’t given more pizza he’ll get dangerously fatter.
