October 2013 Update:
Senate Plans Maneuver to
Allow Obama to Raise Debt Ceiling
Senate Democrats say they'll advance a bill giving President Barack Obama the authority to raise the debt ceiling unless two-thirds of Congress disapproves, according to a Senate Democratic aide.
The issue of increasing the borrowing limit and avoiding an unprecedented default is fast becoming a central focus in Washington — and comes as ordinary Americans say they're deeply dismayed with the week-old government shutdown, and are finding blame with both Republicans and Democrats.
"It looks like there is more than enough blame to go around and both parties are being hurt by the shutdown," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.
An initial test vote on the proposal, described by the aide on condition of anonymity, could occur as soon as Oct. 11, just six days before federal borrowing authority is set to expire.
Democrats have been pressing for a one-year increase in the nation's $16.7 trillion debt ceiling without any of the spending cuts or policy changes Republicans are demanding.
The idea to give Obama the authority to raise the debt ceiling barring a congressional disapproval was first proposed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, in 2011; it became part of the Budget Control Act passed in August of that year.
Voting to Increase the "Limit" is
Voting for Increased Federal Debt!
Voting to let the President do it
Is Voting to End the Republic!
CONGRESS ABROGATED ITS LAWFUL RESPONSIBILITY
TO CONTROL THE FEDERAL DEBT AUGUST 2012!
Now the Senate Seeks to Make it Permanent!
In order to stop the Obama Debt Increase, both houses of Congress must pass majority resolutions which the Prez can veto, meaning that at least 2/3 of Congress must act to stop the debt increase!
"President Barrack Obama formally notified Congress today that that the government needs another $1.2 trillion in borrowing authority.
The written certification to raise the debt ceiling to $16.394 trillion, part of an August agreement between the White House and Congress to raise the limit in three steps, starts a 15-day clock for lawmakers to consider and vote on a joint resolution disapproving of the increase. Obama has veto power over any disapproval resolution that clears both chambers.
The U.S. House is expected to vote on a resolution of disapproval on Jan. 18, said Laena Fallon, a spokeswoman for Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Virginia Republican. The Senate is scheduled to return the following week.
The law calls for Obama to notify Congress when the debt came within $100 billion of the current $15.194 trillion limit."

WILL THERE BE ANOTHER FED DEBT DOWNGRADE
IF CONGRESS FAILS TO STOP THE DEBT INCREASE?
WE BELIEVE SO!
Old NEWS: 5.16.11: Debt Limit Reached! Sky not falling....
"The federal government reached its debt limit Monday, and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner again detailed the (sic) disastrous and widespread consequences of Congressional inaction. Skeptics continue to suggest that a failure to raise the debt ceiling would not significantly harm the economy..." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/16/geithner-debt-ceiling_n_86...

So, what is a Health and Food Freedom NGO like Natural Solutions doing involved in the US Federal Government debt ceiling controversy? Why did we set up an Action item so you can educate decision makers, like our Congressional representatives? This important message from Natural Solutions Foundation President, Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (US Army, Ret.):
The Federal Govt's control over the States has been predicated on two factors: the Carrot (Federal spending) and the Stick (overwhelming military force, as it's had since the 1860s).
Where does the Fed Govt get the money it needs to exercise control over state and local govt employees, such as food safety officials? How does it have the power to force us to accept GMO "Phude" (it looks like food; maybe even smells and tastes a bit like food... but it is not!)?
Not so much from taxes anymore. It was John M. Keynes who opined that governments didn't need taxes to run, since central banks (like the Federal Reserve) could print up all the money they needed; taxes were needed in this view to "sop up" all that fiat currency in order to slow price inflation. No doubt, the Federal authorities will opt for more fiat money creation to maintain the control dollars create.
On one hand Federal grants to the states are tightening ("unfunded mandates") while on the other hand, the central authorities seek to exercise even more control over the localities.
Example: the new Food Control Law (misnamed the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act) provides for "contracts" between the FDA and local food safety officials to fund and control the local officials.
So, if we are to give the States a chance to reassert state sovereignty, the Federal juggernaut needs to be held back.
How? By limiting its credit. More specifically, by no longer enabling its borrowing addiction.
Yes, the Government of the United States of America is behaving exactly like any other addict...
And with addicts, there is just one thing to do: JUST SAY NO!

It doesn't take the cooperation of any one else in the govt, including the Senate, President or Fed Reserve!
PLEASE use this Action Item daily to make it clear to our Representatives in the House that any who vote for any increase in the debt ceiling will not be returned to the House in 2012!
ZERO DEBT INCREASE TOLERANCE! NOT ONE PENNY MORE FEDERAL DEBT!
February 2011's huge deficit shows that the most important battle at this moment is the imminent vote in the House to raise the laughably misnamed and now 40 times raised "debt ceiling." See: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/mar/7/government-posts-biggest-monthly-deficit-ever/#
