House GOP leaders announced Tuesday they will advance this week an increase in the government's borrowing cap that's free of any add-ons. A vote is scheduled for Tuesday night because of the threat of a winter storm.
House Speaker John Boehner announced the plan after a poll of the Republican rank and file failed to show enough support for a plan to tie the hike in the debt limit to a plan to reverse a recently passed cut to military pensions.
The Ohio Republican said he expected virtually all of President Barack Obama's Democratic allies to vote for the so-called clean debt cap increase but that he would be one of the few Republicans to back it in the vote.
So a winter storm is the excuse for Boehner's surrender. Why? He needed to run to the store to stock up on cigarettes, plus plenty of gin and martini mix? More reason this clown doesn't belong in leadership and someone with a pair who is willing to fight does.
I'm sure the cowardly lion Boehner was intimidated by the bullying rhetoric coming from the Regime and the nerdy spokesmouth Jay Carney.
“Our position, the president's position, is what it has been for a long time, which is that we are not going to pay ransom in return for Congress fulfilling this basic responsibility.”Hey Carney with talk like that that makes the drunk Boehner break down, it appears to me you and your boss Obama are the ones holding the nation hostage.
