Boehner has become another Hagel.....A Fool and Tool.....but the vote is on Wednesday. Lets see if he shuts down the Repeal on COLA that was already in the works. We have the Dems cold and we need to let it play out like it will.
Is Your Member With The Career Military Or Against Them?.....
It looks like the House will consider a one year hike in the debt limit joined to a repeal of the cut to the retirement benefits of the career military that was engineered by House Appropriations Chair Hal Rogers last month and acceded to by a majority of the House GOP. The dumbest move of many dumb moves by the House GOP over many years. The only 6 billion the House GOP took a real stand against borrowing out of 17+ trillion in debt was the $6 billion earned by and owed to the men and women who fought the war. Beltway cluelessness at its flood tide.
Some GOP House members are threatening to vote against the debt limit hike even with the repeal attached to it. If they are that foolhardy, then they can look forward to being branded as anti-military for as long as they remain in Congress. This will be one of those votes that stick. Unlike the 40+ votes to repeal Obamacare or the past debt limit votes, or any of the shutdown votes, or even the TARP vote, any vote against repeal of the cut for any reason will have an audience that will score it for real –not in a Club for Growth/Heritage/ACU sort of way, but scored in memory and for good. Many Members have already figured out that their vote for the cut in career military retirement benefits deeply offended not just the uniformed military and their families, but also their friends and a vast cross section of Americans who understand the war sacrifices of the past dozen years have been shouldered by a very small percentage of the population and that “budget resolve” at the expense of this group is posturing at best.
Democrats say they may vote against anything except a “clean debt limit hike.” Another interesting vote and no doubt many of the anti-military left will think nothing of doing whatever they think the president wants them to do. Again, this vote will be a mark on the permanent record. A “clean debt limn it” versus the real lives of real soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Go ahead, their GOP opponents must be saying, make their day.
A pox is already on the House members who voted for the cut to begin with, but a double pox will be on those who stand in the way of its repeal. It is that simple, and though I have no doubt some GOPers will talk themselves into that box, they shouldn’t be surprised when very few friends of the military offer to help them out of it in the future.....snip~

What's Cantor and Ryan saying? What about Price?
No matter how good he is at raising the roof, Boehner can't dance around this issue. *drumroll*
Either I'm right or you're wrong.
There really shouldn't even be a debt ceiling.
If Congress appropriates three trillion dollars to spend on stuff, but has also placed a limit on their borrowing to where they can only spend two trillion, they've passed two laws that conflict with each other.
One of you will end up here next!
Folks, move your money into money market funds now. This kind of stuff is about to crash this market, I fear.
Somebody please lock Boehner in a tanning booth with a carton of cigarettes and leave him there. Tired of that spineless crybaby.
