    Boener and all are in the conservative  Tea Party Union (TPU) who are on strike.  Following on that logic: Their demands were presented past the deadline for the contract.   They didn't show 19 times for negotiations, they failed by election and by legislation at getting their main demand (ax ACA) so they are on a strike of their own choosing.

    /sort of snark

    Wars of choice. Strikes of choice.  And who is left to pick up the carnage?  Afghanistan and Iraq are still smoldering.  I fear that the default will have world wide  incendiary ramifications that will be very long lasting.
