    But consider this logic for a Tea Brain:

    1) Vote for the Boehner plan, and you are excoriated by Grover Norquist and the Club for Greed and so on for raising the debt ceiling. Get primaried from the right - oh, the irony.

    2) Vote against the Boehner plan, the Reid plan passes, effectively the results are the same wrt spending cuts, but you don't get primaried.

    If you think they want to reduce the deficit, they vote for. If they want to get re-elected, they vote against.

    I'm betting on against.
