2012 Economic Armageddon --- Obama's Warning

16 July 2011.

Obama warns of economic 'Armageddon' if debt deal fails to materialize

US President Barack Obama is pressing polarized lawmakers to avert what he called economic "Armageddon" by quickly forging a deal to prevent an early August debt default by the world's richest country.

"We're obviously running out of time," Obama warned at the White House Friday, as Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives met separately to discuss the way forward and Senate leaders worked on a last-ditch compromise.

Obama renewed his call for a "grand bargain," which would cut entitlement programs dear to his fellow Democrats, but Republicans have flatly rejected his call for higher taxes on the rich.

The US president, sure to be judged in the 2012 elections based on his handling of the jobs-poor US economy, signaled he would not reject a last-minute compromise key lawmakers were drafting behind closed doors.

"Let's at least avert Armageddon," he said after five straight days of crisis talks at the White House failed to reach a deal on closing the yawning budget deficit while raising the US debt limit from its current $14.3 trillion.

Economists and finance and business leaders have warned that failure to raise the US debt ceiling by August 2 could send shock waves through a world economy still reeling from the 2008 collapse.

Ratings agencies Moody's and Standard & Poor's have warned they may downgrade Washington's sterling Triple-A debt rating, and leading US creditor China, Wall Street titan JP Morgan Chase and the Federal Reserve have also sounded the alarm.

With time running short, Obama's top Republican foes in Congress called for votes next week on their plan for severe spending cuts on the way to amending the US Constitution to require cash-strapped Washington to balance its budget.

"Our jobs crisis and national debt require real action. So now the debate will move from a room in the White House to the House and Senate floors," said Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

"It's time for the Democrats to get serious as well. We asked the president to lead. We asked him to put forward a plan -- not a speech, a real plan -- and he hasn't. We will," said Republican House Speaker John Boehner.

The long-shot Republican plan, all but certain to fail in the Democratic-led Senate, pleased conservative lawmakers close to the "Tea Party" movement that fiercely opposes raising the debt limit and seeks deep spending cuts.

"We're finally back on offense," Republican Representative Jeff Flake told reporters.

The president left open the door to a "fall-back position" being crafted by McConnell and Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that would pair spending cuts with a debt limit increase, but called it the "least attractive option" apart from default.

That measure, described by aides who warned it was still in flux, would include some $1.5 trillion in spending cuts but would essentially let Obama raise the debt ceiling with only Democratic support in both chambers.

The proposal, which has incensed conservatives, could also create a commission of US lawmakers to recommend cuts that would circumvent parliamentary hurdles more easily than regular legislation.

Obama assailed the Republican refusal to support his call for raising taxes on the rich and wealthy corporations, warning a default would amount to "a tax increase on everybody" in the form of skyrocketing interest rates.

Republicans have argued that tax hikes would smother investment that feeds job growth at a time when the US economy faces stubbornly high unemployment of 9.2 percent.

A new opinion poll by Quinnipiac University found the US public more ready to blame Republicans than Obama by a 48 percent to 34 percent margin in the event of a default.

The president cast the 2012 campaign as a national argument over the US economy, and predicted that he "will win that debate because I think that we've got the better approach."

Since we are increasingly going through boths natural and man-made crisis here on our dear earth lately,

I consider it as one of the signs that ancient native Mayan civilization of South America clearly predicted some five centuries earlier.

I also believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg, just the beginning, and there's more ( chaos/ turmoils) to come before the world

as we know it comes to an end.

So brace for yourself, be prepared and get ready for the END.

Good Luck All!

1000's maybe even 10's of 1000's of other 'end of the world' prophecies have come and gone.. This is just more scare-mongering by whackos who percieve something to fit their own belief, like running out of room on an ancient tablet means end of the world.
