    Nominee for thread title of the year award.


    Fortunately for Boehner the prospect of a ‘Speaker Cantor’ is so horrendous to republicans the Speaker may be allowed to keep his job. Maybe.

    Maybe before you left wingers start your Soros lock-step rhetoric and spout anti-GOP cliches you should think about the situation. Would democrats even be talking (lying) about cutting spending if it wasn't for the republican majority in congress? You lefties should be patting Boehmer on the back for forcing the democrat party to stop spending our great-grandkids money in lavish political payoffs but you can't. You are stuck with a failed neo-socialist ideology and you can't let go of it even when the future of America is at stake.

    Boner can't get enough votes from his own party.

    Tea Party Warns GOP: A Vote for Boehner's Debt Plan Violates Our Pledge


    WASHINGTON -- The Tea Party is causing more headaches for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) over his debt proposal.

    A coalition of several hundred Tea Party chapters declared Tuesday that a vote for Boehner's debt plan constitutes a violation of its pledge, which 51 Republican lawmakers have signed. The group, known as the Cut, Cap and Balance Coalition, notified its members of its position in a Tuesday memo entitled, "Clarification of the CCB Coalition Stance on the Speaker's Proposal."

    You’ve got to be kidding.

    There are 51 insane republicans (at least) in the House, who are neglecting the oath they swore to the Constitution in favor of an oath sworn to partisan ideology.

    no they don't have to do that, the 2 "gentleman" on this thread laughing it up as usual have a deficit of , well intellectual honsety it appears.....a) pelosi told her folks back in the run up to the healthcare votes, get on board, or else. b) she has already done same for this vote, not that it matters much becasue they slaughtered the blue dogs they worked so hard to get elected to grab the majority....c) the headlines ala boehner, well , if it were bohener threatens member's with loss of chairmanships positions etc. we'd be hearing about what a hitler he was.....so, its just trash in, trash out.

    Is there something inherent in the liberal gene that they refuse to recognize evidence that is presented to them? We owe China more than we can pay them in the near future and democrats think Obama should keep spending our grand kids fortune while the debt mounts up.

    I want to see him on the floor screaming and crying and banging his fists on the floor throwing a tantrum.
    House vote tabled.
    Gotta love it, the suspense is killing me.
    McConnell going to throw this into Obama's lap? that's unremarkable.

    Umm, you need to do some research. Obama was handed a huge deficit when he took office. The US technically hasn't had a balanced budget since 1957. The recession is lingering. Have republicans put anything on the table other than cuts? and no revenues?
    Can a country wage 2 wars and not take in additional revenues to pay for it?
    No revenues means no job creation in the past 10 years too. Tax cuts were supposed to be the incentive for corporations to create jobs, and has it? No. Instead, corporations moved jobs overseas, put Americans out of work, no new revenues coming in.
    Are you sure you want to blame this entirely upon Obama and democrats?
