    As Inland says above, they couldn't agree on a ransom demand.

      This is inside the GOP politics.  I think Boehnor couldn't get the Tea Party wing to agree to any ransom that had a remote chance of being paid, so he decided to junk the Hastert Rule again and "F" the Tea Party wing.  His statements at the beginning of the year indicating he has had it with them, makes it likely that he decided to throw them overboard.
