    Geez, wasn't the Prez refusing to negotiate supposed to be his undoing in this? That's what at least one of our resident wingnuts on here was saying...

    It would be a lot easier to take you seriously if you could construct an understandable sentence. Gibberish, words who's meaning is known only to you and random, unconnected thoughts of a demented mind are kind of off putting.

    Talking points? I can't even decipher your OP How would I know what "Talking Points" would be appropriate. The point is, HellofromWarsaw, you don't make sense. Your posts are as stupid as Mr Shaman's but not as pretty.
    You're a troll, son. Damned few take you seriously.

    So, when do you get an opinion, dumbazz? LOL Trolls avoid actual opinions on the OP, fcs. And they're ALL Pub dupes, because they're clueless except for a thin veneer of memorized propaganda LOL. So YOUR OPINION?

    This is like Fox (and the whole Pub Propaganda machine) whenever something happens- they have to wait to get the talking points- they change the subject to total BS LOL while all the other media discuss it immediately. An idiotic disgrace...

    I think the economy will love this- Pubs have been screwing up the recovery with mindless obstruction for 3 years...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    WILLIAMSBURG — House Republicans backed away from their resolute position on the federal debt ceiling, announcing Friday that they will move next week to boost the government’s borrowing authority for three months.

    The move is a retreat from the earlier insistence among some Republicans that any such debt increase would have to be matched by spending cuts of equal or greater size.

    A vote on the proposal is expected Wednesday. If successful, the measure would postpone what was expected to be a major clash with the White House over government spending.

    The new strategy, crafted at a three-day retreat here that ended Friday, is one sign that Republicans, battered at the polls last November and saddled with record-low public approval, are looking for new ways to litigate their differences with President Obama and congressional Democrats over spending and deficits.

    Under the bill, Republicans will seek to raise the debt limit to allow government borrowing through mid-April — long enough, they say, to give both chambers time to pass a budget for the next fiscal year. If either chamber failed to adopt a budget by April 15, that chamber’s members would then have their Congressional pay withheld.

    As laid out to fellow Republicans in speech at the retreat, House Speaker John B. Boehner of Ohio said the goal would be to force Senate Democrats to pass a budget, something they have failed to do for more than three years. With a budget in place, he told them Republicans would require that a longer-term increase in the debt ceiling be tied to significant spending cuts.

    “We are going to pursue strategies that will obligate the Senate to finally join the House in confronting the government’s spending problem,” he said, according to excerpts from a speech he gave during the retreat that were released Friday.

    As for docking the Senate’s pay if it does not adopt a budget, he said, “The principle is simple: No budget, no pay,” Boehner said.

    The GOP’s new path is an attempt to acknowledge the reality that the GOP control’s only the House while preserving a tactical advantage that could force long-term reductions in spending, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin told reporters on Thursday.

    An administration official said the White House viewed the move as a major concession by House Republicans.

    Though Obama has in the past insisted on increases of sufficient length to calm financial markets and remove any doubt about the ability of the U.S. government to pay its bills, the official said the president would accept a “clean” short-term extension that did not include cuts.
