    “In order to get the Republican Conference to pass the debt-limit increase last time, he promised them sequestration would not go in place,” the Republican House member said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
    THE SEQUESTER WAS TIED AT THE HIP TO THE DEBT DEAL -- IT WAS THE DEBT DEAL -- IT WAS THE SPENDING CUT 'PRICE' THE REPUBLICANS DEMANDED.

    If you take the sequester away from the 2011 debt ceiling negotiations, you would be left with a clean bill raising the debt ceiling.

    If Boehner had wanted a debt deal with no sequester, he could have just passed a damned clean bill in the first place.

    This is just a blatant admission that Republicans have no interest in either (a) negotiating in good faith, or (b) actually doing any hard thinking on reducing the budget deficit.
