  •  So we reneg on the entitlement triggers. Like it (3+ / 0-)

    never happened.  Whole thing was a dumb idea and doomed to fail anyway.

    •  Correct. This brings down the whole house. (0+ / 0-)

      If the defense cuts are spared, Congress will definitely pass a Doc Fix for the Medicare provider-side cuts.

      So, what we're left with would be this:

      The debt ceiling was raised through the 2012 elections, "in exchange for" the initial $450 billion in defense cuts that Boehner agreed to.

      Good deal.

      Art is the handmaid of human good.
