I took a few moments this morning to record a couple of the national debt ceiling quotes that caught my eye over the past several weeks. In the endless and overwhelming flow of information that floats around out there…I thought these quotes were seasoned with some wit. It makes me think that these people from all walks of life gave a little thought to what they wrote.  I don’t necessarily agree with all of them….but they all made me think. Oh…and I almost forgot…I left these quotes anonymous to protect to innocent and the guilty. However, you can blame me for the cheesy caption under the image.

  1. “United States downgraded day after record number of Americans tune into Jersey Shore season premiere.”
  2. “The American Dream is 6 cents cheaper in canada…!”
  3. “Everything we’ve had for the last 20 years is fake”
  4. “Today’s national debt: $14,564,970,167,709.38. Your share as a citizen: $46,694.11. Your share as a taxpayer: $130,289.”
  5. “Apple should launch a new application for all congressmen; iDebt”
  6. “Entitlement my ass. I paid for my Social Security Insurance! Our benefits aren’t some kind of charity or handout! Congressional benefits – free health care, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days – now THAT’S welfare. And Congress has the nerve to call my retirement an Entitlement?…”
  7. “I read somewhere that Apple has more spending rev than the US Govt. #DeptCeiling crisis… time to borrow sugar from neighbors analogy”
  8. “Standard&Poor just downgraded US credit to BAAAAAAAAAD.Will it convince spenders irresponsible debt is dumb? Unlikely.”

  10. “DEAR CONGRESS, Last year I mismanaged my funds and this year my family and I cannot decide on a budget. Until we can come to a unified decision that fits all of our needs and interests, we will have to shut down our check book and will no longer be able to pay our taxes. I’m sure you’ll understand. Thank you very much for setting an example we can all follow.”
