  •  what is the Dem price for raising the ceiling? (0+ / 0-)

    Democrats might want to reply to Boehner with their own price.
    I would suggest one area:  combine the VA and Defense Department budgets and say they cannot increase faster than inflation (or as a percent of total budget).  Increase renewables on bases and other DoD buildlings.
    Another price to pay:  Medicare Advantage payments will be reduced as per the health care plan unless Republicans have a better plan.  What would they reduce instead?
    just some thoughts.
