    How else will they make it to the end of 2013?

    I think they need more.

    They should raise it as high as possible now so they don’t have to worry later.

    In fact we should just remove all limits. They are really just artificial constructs created by the banking industry. Just made up numbers created to scare the sheep and control our economy. The real intelligent people know they mean nothing. The intelligentsia will guide us down a safe path.
    Trust them.

    Patrick, I assume you’re being facetious – I certainly hope so ! ! Ironically, for the immediate future, it probably WOULDN’T make much difference – it’s true these numbers have become meaningless, the Fed Gov’t manipulates them anyway! ! Down the road, of course, it does – at some point we will no longer be able to keep this fiction afloat, and the only way to avoid becoming another Greece is to face the problem & deal with it realistically. Sadly, no sign that’s going to happen any time soon. Reid’s statement is just astonishing…
