    •  Yes. What they have hinted at (0+ / 0-)

      is that they will just propose a bill to get rid of the (binding) part of the debt-ceiling bill (sequester) that they don't like.  Obama has told them no many times, but I'll bet they try it.  In essence, they're doing exactly what you said: bullshit, window dressing, (pick a description) because they are not now, nor were they ever, serious about the whole debt-crisis thing.  This is all about denying Obama any kind of "win" and denying the rest of us any kind of hope for something better.
