Yes, House Republicans should stop trying to tie other issues to the debt ceiling bill, because it is manipulative of politicians to try to work in other things in the same vote. This is nothing more than pork projects, even if they are not spending bills. It is not representative of the people and it is a misleading practice.
Yes, House Republicans stop trying to tie other issues to the debt ceiling bill. They can't get any legislation passed on normal bills, because they're trying to pass laws and cut funding that the American people don't want. And every time they've held the economy hostage, they end up looking like fools.
Tea Party Republicans are running Congress into the ground. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas essentially made the government shutdown a reality. Ultra-conservatives in the House rebelled against Speaker of the House John Boehner with regards to the debt ceiling. House Republicans should try compromising instead of putting their feet down and digging in for a long fight. They are too small of a minority to make any difference and they will pay in November's general elections.
Yes, republicans and democrats need to try to stop making the other sides bills be wrong, and they need to start compromising and getting this country back in good shape. All they do is fight, and they are letting the country go deeper and deeper into a debt, a bad thing.
I believe House Republicans should stop trying to tie other issues to the debt ceiling bills. Personally, I see no reason to put bills together that address several different issues. I believe the Congress has used this method to serve personal goals and not the goals of the country, which should be punishable.
