    There is NO WAY in my mind they're going to let themselves look like fools again. If there is one thing republicans are capable of, it's to let go of their principles and act like a unified mob when they want to win political points. A second failure will not be accepted. And if the leadership ( or more especially some big money backers who are the REAL bosses of the party)  wants something, they have the means to obtain it.

    I REALLY hope President Obama and the democratic leadership in Congress are prepared for everything, even for a last minute coup, example a plan C that would PASS the House on Sunday night or Monday.

    •  You probably are. (0+ / 0-)

      The house cannot act alone.  They need to do something the Senate will agree to, and in order to do that, they need to be debating and discussing things.  They are not - they're sitting there, waiting for the President to kowtow, and he's not gonna.

      I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.

    •  That assumes the big money backers... (0+ / 0-)

      ...have reached consensus as to the "something they want." I'm unsure such a consensus exists. Some of them are "gaming" and welcoming the uncertainty. Some have longer term horizons and want actual medium term certainty, even if it isn't "ideal."
