    I'm working on a post now of John Boehner's comments this morning on Fox News where he says Congress will never give up the power to control the debt ceiling and that any expansion has to be matched by entitlement cuts.

      to have the debt ceiling law declared unconstitutional, at an early date. That does not require Boehner's consent, and is apparently already under discussion. Note, of course, that Boehner does not say today that tax increase must be matched by 'spending' cuts, but rather 'entitlement' cuts. A much narrower and more questionable matter in which he KNOWS now after the election that he will be pushing over the objections of a huge percentage of the entire country, and does not care and never has.
