  •  What do they get? (4+ / 0-)

    They get to keep using the debt ceiling as a tool for engineering wins without winning elections, by threatening the global economy. That's what they get.

    Let me ask you this, suppose they give Obama his clean CR and a 6-wk debt ceiling rise. In 6 weeks, where do you suppose we'll be? Will Paul Ryan's wish list be any different, or will we be going through the same thing again, except during the holidays this time? And, assuming the debt ceiling raise stays as stated in the Republican proposal, also removing Treasury's ability to take extreme measures--meaning we really do default.

    I tried to go online to find a similar bear head...but when I searched “Big Bear Head” it gave me a San Diego craigslist ad entitled “Big Bear needs some quick head now” and then I just decided to never go on the internet again.--Jenny Lawson
