    How did Boehner think that he was going to sell increasing spending to his caucus on a debt limit increase? It made no sense from the start, which is why I think Boehner floated it. He wanted to kill the idea of using the debt limit as a policy weapon, because it only makes his job harder. They can attach their poison pills to any other sort of legislation that they want, but Boehner is well aware that the debt ceiling isn't in play. Now he's just convinced his caucus of it.
