    It could cut in unexpected ways, but as a matter of principle: GOOD!

    correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the only way to send an amendment to the Constitution to the states, for it to be voted on by the House, Senate... passed... signed by the President? Isn't it then up to 3/4's of the states to ratify it?

    Conservatives are not happy with the milktoast republicans who keep watering down the plan...if it's not going to do the real job that is needed....why pass it....?

    some are promoting a bill to priortize bond payments, social security, and military pay if nothing gets passed by Aug 2...

    Obama will have no bill to sign so he won't get blamed for this crash that is coming

    Demanding that a Balanced Budget amendment has "assurances it will be sent to the states" is voting for default. I wish the Tea Partiers would just be honest.

    No. It's not.

    I wish you'd be honest.

    There is no default coming (even if there's no agreement). There will be no "crash" coming unless, for traitorous partisan political reasons, the liberal Democrats cause one.

    of course it is. It leaves two possibilities, one of which is impossible:

    1. We have "assurances" that a balanced budget amendment will be sent to the states. Exactly what assurances do you have in mind? It's impossible.

    2. We default.

    Since (1) is impossible, it's a vote for (2). But luckily for sane people, the Tea Party doesn't have a large enough caucus to prevent sane people from passing a sane debt limit increase.
