About This File

This weeks Thursday file brings you an updated version of the debt ceiling disadvantage along with all of the uq/internal link nuts and bolts you will be needing on the aff.

 

Earlier this week, we were all doomed to the fiery pits of politics hell. With controversy on Syria heating up and a “yes vote†for the military option appearing bleak, it appeared Obama was going to have zero PC left for the rest of his agenda.

 

But alas, the politics Gods have spoken and delivered us salvation. Obama’s Tuesday speech was a game-changer by focusing on the diplomacy option with Syria, delaying a controversial vote on military action. The story on the debt ceiling disadvantage is that with Syria now taking a back seat and dying down, Obama will have the PC necessary to deliver a compromise on debt ceiling by the end of October. And, EVEN IF the diplomatic option falls through, delaying the vote will create the necessary time and space to ensure debt ceiling gets resolved. The new 1NC impact card is spectacular. The impact is fast, big, and definitely turns the case.

 

For the aff house – “no pass†cards for debt ceiling and immigration AND very strong thumpers/general pc killers for every other obscure agenda item someone might try to pull out of left field.
