    •  The GOP is doing this for two reasons (6+ / 0-)

      One, there's just barely enough time to get in one last demand or two in case Obama breaks and they feel they've got nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying (they're wrong about nothing to lose, of course). And two, to save face with the teabaggers and make it look like they went down fighting. And, maybe also, to set up what they think will be a stronger negotiating position in whatever budget negotiations will follow. I think they've got that wrong too.
