  •  Republicans are evidently (0+ / 0-)

    trying to force giant reductions in the budget by not supporting debt limit rises. They will try to push these reductions as the solution to the debt limit crisis. If carried to the deadline without reductions, they will most likely fold and vote for a raise in the limit. Like anyone else, they surely don't want to be the ones who caused defaults by not acting.

    •  The thing is (0+ / 0-)

      nobody knows exactly what will happen when.  It's like playing with matches after someone has poured gasoline all around you. A very likely outcome of these idiotic antics is that the US debt will become much harder to ever pay off.

      Isn't there a single Republican or Tea Party member that understands the difference between paying off a mortgage at 4% and paying it off at 20%? Is there no limit to their simplemindedness?

      Boehner is acting like a complete fool.
