  •  Bulls**t, Boehner can't pass anything sane (1+ / 0-)

    he needs dem votes, there are at least 20 teabaggers who won't vote for any debt ceiling increase, and maybe 50 more who will refuse to fund the govt without gutting Obamacare.

    If any deal will require a majority of dem votes, why not have demands of our own? I for one am glad that Reid and Dems are finally playing hardball and his position is clear, Boehner does not have the votes, he needs Pelosi.

    Dems should pass a clean debt limit bill, force Boehner to place it on the floor and it will pass. Once the threat of default is gone it will be a few days until they cave completely.
