    They may believe they can get these concessions, but most likely it's for show, and when the midnight hour comes, they'll cave. There simply aren't enough crazy Repubs to kill a last-minute deal. It's going to happen. Even Ryan knows that default is political suicide for him & the GOP. He can read polls, unskewed.

      ...a lot of people said the same thing about the shutdown itself.

      And even if they take a midnight deal on the debt ceiling, can anyone seriously guarantee they won't drag out the shutdown for a couple more weeks just because they can?

        We've never had a default. EVER. Big difference. And even they know it. Come the drop dead hour, they'll cave. Not enough of them are that crazy.
