Democrat operative and Obama “outside” senior adviser and his 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, has tweeted that not jacking up the national debt and turning future generations of Americans into debt slaves amounts to treason.
Mr. Plouffe slammed Republicans and other “birthers” for asking questions about Obama’s presidential eligibility in the Thursday morning tweet.
Meanwhile, House Republican leader John Boehner has agreed to increase the federal debt.
“What we want to do is offer the president today the ability to move a temporary increase in the debt ceiling,” the Ohio Republican said following a closed door meeting with fellow Republicans.
Boehner said the deal would open the debt floodgates until Thanksgiving.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama is “happy” with the decision to increase the debt but said the president prefers and open-ended deal without limitation.
