the debt ceiling
i try not to opine too much on this blog but i have to say it's been a long time since i've had as low an opinion of republican politicians as i do right now. the whole point of speaker boehner's "two part" debt ceiling plan is to force americans to go through all this agony again in 6 months to a year. loss of america's good credit would be a disaster for all americans, conservative or liberal. yet, far from trying to solve the debt crisis, the house republicans are actively trying to prolong it- to make sure america is still struggling with this problem immediately before the presidential election. it's a purely cynical, near treasonous political motive- and if he pulls it off it will be a triumph of evil.
