    invites future blackmail.  If there's no deal there will not be a default.  REmember how the market crashed when the REpubs shot down TARP?  Remember how fast they came back and passed TARP?  Their corporate task masters will not allow a default.  This is all kabuki theater and Obama is the ringleader.

      Who don't care if we default. That needs to be reckoned with. In addition, Boner is an incompetent buffoon who cannot control his caucus.

      This is why Nancy is stepping up. She cares. She does not want to default, so she's stepping into the breach.

        The world would be a better place for it.
