    I would bet the plan is to get any deal passed in the House with all of the Democrats and minimal Republicans voting for it.  Then the Democrats own it.

    •  So Democrats would own "saving the country"? (1+ / 0-)

      I mean, "saving the country" is how the media is portraying the problem ... The last thing the GOP mandarins wants is for Democrats to own that.

      However, the teabaggers in the House don't give a shit, so they'll kill any plan just to watch it die. I don't know how Boehner makes lemonade from that ...

        Everybody else will see SS and Medicare cuts.  Voted for by the Dems.

          in this battle and the debt ceiling that follows will determine if I open my checkbook in 2014 or not.

          I voted for Obama in 2012 but didn't donate a cent to him because he extended the Bush tax cuts...if they screw up  here they'll have my vote in 2014 but nothing more.
