Boehner, GOP prepare for fight regarding debt ceiling
Speaker of the House John Boehner wasted little time after the aversion of a government shutdown last week to make sure everyone knew it was a warmup for the battle on the debt ceiling.

He and the rest of the GOP parrots know good and well there is not option but to approve the raising of the debt ceiling, but they want to posture and make this a liberal government problem, despite the fact it was under their watch that the debt exploded to begin with, requiring it to be raised six times under the Bush/Cheney war machine.

Their consistent denial of their culpability in this matter is part of what should discredit them from any intelligent discourse regarding fiscal matters.

As always, it is up to us to shout the truth in the face of the GOP BS.

1. So he's gonna go against the will of his corporate masters?
He'd done, this will kill his career in the eyes of the public and in the eyes of his "masters".

2. I don't think he much cares. He got to be speaker, didn't realize he
had to actually "work"....He won't cry, he'll probably be relieved.
