Re: Will the house block next year's increase to the deficit ceiling? What else?
I don't see how the Republican House majority cannot vote to raise the debt limit.
This is the 'adult moment' that Boehner keep talking about. Yea, I know that it'll stick sideways in the throats of those who ran on reducing the spending, but they are going to have to buy some time to make the required spending cuts, and raising the debt ceiling will be required to gain that time.
On the other hand, Pawlenty was floating the idea that sequencing the spending would gain them the time that they need to make the required spending cuts.
Which do you think they'll do and why?
If a man were behind four months on his mortgage and was talking to you about his plans to build an addition on his home you would think him daft and delusional. But in Washington, ignoring a current crisis to discuss grand dreams is called “boldness” and “vision.”
