"Raise Debt Ceiling" Boehner Sells Out: The USA is Done!
[link to www.washingtonpost.com]

House Republican leaders are pushing a short-term increase in the debt limit, without any conservative strings attached, to calm jittery financial markets, according to senior GOP advisers.

The plan, which is being presented to the House GOP caucus Thursday morning, coincided with a warning to lawmakers from Treasury Secretary Jack Lew that he will be unable to guarantee payments to any group — whether Social Security recipients or U.S. bondholders — unless Congress approves an increase in the federal debt limit.

If the GOP plan goes over well with rank-and-file Republicans, Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) could put the legislation on the floor for a vote late Thursday.


Just awesome!

The debt ceiling is a seperate issue that the libs are trying to tie with passing obummercare.

By keeping the issues seperate, passing the debt ceiling and keeping the pressure on the dems is a good stratagy.

Selling out? It's a 6 week extension of the debt ceiling. Giants may still not have a win by then by the time we hit the ceiling again. The government is likely shutdown for this whole 6 week period if this goes through, that is not caving.

So rip the bandaid now, or tear when the skin has grown to it. It's a great strategy.

The President's investment in the meeting with the 5 "conservative journalists" paid off big, the Progressive republicans defeated the tea party.

Beck just said he bypassed Congress yesterday by using the Fisher House instead of the Senate passing the bill and him signing it. Beck is lawyering up for tonight's program. He said not a single person in the country has said a thing about this and it's very serious.
