Martha Raddatz: Is [President Obama] right, that we do not have an immediate crisis?
Speaker John Boehner: We do not have an immediate debt crisis. But we all know we have one looming…
Raddatz: How long do we have to solve our problems?
Speaker Boehner: Nobody knows where this is; it could be a year, two years, three years, four years. It’s not an immediate problem.
Raddatz: You can agree with the president on that?
Speaker Boehner: Yes.
While the Speaker of the House confirms to reporters that there is not a debt crisis his party pushes austerity and cuts to Social Security and Medicare screaming crisis to justify the damage. Meanwhile there is a jobs crisis and stunning inequality.
Of course as long as we are talking about a debt crisis that does not exist I guess we do not have to deal with our actual problems – problems that the rich have no interest in addressing.
