    Democratic Senators emerged from what some said was one of the most frustrated luncheon meetings they'd ever witnessed, Guardian Washington correspondent Paul Lewis (@PaulLewis) reports:

    A visibly angry Chuck Schumer, the third-ranking Democrat in the Senate, summarized the mood when he said John Boehner had killed the momentum that had gathered behind their bipartisan deal.

    "We're at the 11th hour. The train to avoid default was smoothly heading down the tracks and picking up speed, and at the last minute, speaker Boehner decides to throw a log on those tracks. Enough already."

    "I am so disappointed. I am not disappointed in my Senate Republican colleagues. I think many of them understand the danger and want to help."

    •  I think the tea partiers are hoping that Obama (0+ / 0-)

      will use some other remedy to pay the bills and that they can say that he has done something unconstitutional and then they can Impeach him.  if you listen to the former 1/2 term crazy gov of Alaska say "it was an impeachable offense for the President to not pay the bills".

      But if the House won't let him and he implements some other Amendment to do it then I think the GOP was try to impeach him.  Just think that that may be their real goal.
