"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

The vote on the debt ceiling is postponed!

Some of the hard core right Tea Party won't believe it, but the support for the bill in Congressional offices I have talked to today is running in favor of passage.  Republican leadership should put the blame where it belongs -- first on the Democrats and then on the Tea Party Republicans that put their reelection ahead of what is good for the Country.  Many Republicans across America are tired of the National Tea Party leaders and their attitudes along with some members of the Tea Party Caucus run by Bachmann.  They obviously could care less if the Country defaults which it has never done before. 

When Congressmen Mike Pence and Allen West got on board so should have the rest. 

Maybe it is time the Republican "NO" members of the House on the debt ceiling rise became Libertarians instead of Republicans because they don't reflect most Republicans I know but do reflect Ron Paul and his Libertarian agenda.

House leaders have postponed a vote scheduled for this evening on the debt-ceiling plan offered by House Speaker John Boehner, an acknowledgement that there are not enough Republican votes to ensure passage.
