    I doubt it does to republicans. It's just a little prediction.

    I just don't see the republicans giving up this time, unless they get severe cuts to SS, Medicare & Medicaid. Their base is now foaming at the mouth and will go crazy if they concede again. Obama will be unwilling to go far enough to appease them and it all ends in a stalemate with both sides standing firm. Rather than watch the full credit of the US to crumble, Obama will use a trillion dollar coin or some other 14th admendment tactic to keep the funds going.

    I'm sure they'll claim abuse of power, failure to abide by the constitution or some other crazy thing. There were some in Congress that thought they were going to be able to impeach him over Bengahzi. It's no stretch to think they wouldn't try it over an issue like this.

    And, even though it didn't work well for them last time, doesn't mean they learned a lesson. Republicans don't learn lessons very well.

    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

      a problem again we start hammering them. If all else fails we can have a march in DC, pay them a visit.
