Boehner Caves Again

Imagine my shock.

Breitbart reports:
House Speaker John Boehner apparently broke from Republican Party principles yet again this weekend, this time with a reported agreement to give President Barack Obama a full year-long free ride that would give up all GOP leverage until early 2014 on the debt ceiling.
“House Speaker John A. Boehner has offered to push any fight over the federal debt limit off for a year, a major concession that would deprive Republicans of leverage in the budget battle but is breathing new life into stalled talks over the year-end ‘fiscal cliff,’” WaPo reported late Sunday. “The offer came Friday, according to people in both parties familiar with the talks, as part of the latest effort by Boehner (R-Ohio) to strike a deal with President Obama to replace more than $500 billion in painful deficit-reduction measures set to take effect in January.”


  1. This is their brilliant plan. Let the Dems do what they want to the American people, and then when it doesn't work and we are all suffering, use it against them to score political points.

    It's so damn easy for the oligarchs to get want they want these days.

    1. So true, Gus.

      And, "Republican Party principles"? HA, is that a joke?
      The Only principles they have are rolled into this: whatever sticks.

  2. Gosh, I can't understand why Republicans lose elections.
