House GOP making sure their debt ceiling bill hits the floor before Senate version. They are challenging Dems to strip out their ideas.

Whatever deal ends all this will infuriate much of the GOP base, which is what happens when expectations are managed poorly.

House GOP Plans Pre-Emptive Move to Counter Senate
House GOP leaders outlined a new plan "to reopen the government and avoid a default on the debt, in an apparent attempt to prevent the Senate from jamming them with a deal they don't support," Roll Call reports.

"The proposed measure, outlined at a morning GOP conference meeting, would fund the government until Jan. 15 and raise the debt ceiling until Feb. 7. However, it would prevent the Treasury from using "extraordinary measures" to delay any default after that Feb. 7 date. The measure would also eliminate health care benefits for lawmakers and cabinet officials, require income verification for Obamacare subsidies, suspend the Obamacare medical device tax for two years."

The "wins" in the House plan are not that big, but not sure Ds can accept any R wins for ending shutdown, raising debt limit.

Some House R's are expressing confidence the Senate will accept the new Houseplan...but suggesting the House vote could be close.

Emerging from House GOP meeting, Boehner says he'll be talking with members on both sides of the aisle "to try to move forward today."

The WH rejected the House plan just as it was being announced by Boehner. Obama to meet House Dem leaders at 3:15pm today.

The House GOP is setting itself up, once again, to get full blame if the nation defaults on Thursday.  They are in no position to demand anything.

We need somebody as Speaker who can educate the people and cut through the media filter.  Boehner is not that guy.

Wouldn't that person also need to convince voters,  Pelosi, Reid and Obama to his/her way of thinking?

Otherwise, what difference does it make?

LOL!

That would assume that 'much of the GOP base' didn't expect to be sold out in the end anyway!

Yeah... let's 'manage expectations' better...    :silly:

That would require an outsider and an outsider will never succeed in D.C.

The game is rigged.  The sooner that most people figure that out, the better...

When Mitt Romney spoke to a room full of donors and told them that nearly half the country (47%) were nothing but takers, and he was filmed doing so, he lost the election.

Educated or not, people know when they're being trashed.

Looks like you've fallen for 0bama's lies, too.  He is Constitutionally bound to pay the nation's debts before anything else.  Treasury has about 10 times as much coming in every month as is necessary to service the public debt.  If he declines to pay the debt first, the House should immediately prepare articles of impeachment.


They are in no position to demand anything.

Doesn't look that way to me.  They are the people's representatives, the House of Representatives.  One of the reasons budgets originate in the House (see Federalist #58) is that the people must be protected from out of control spending.  0bamacare is a budget buster and as such, it makes sense to include it in any budget discussion.

My grandfather used to say that if you tell a lie about a person they'll laugh.  Tell the truth about them and they'll get mad.  Sounds like the old guy knew what he was talking about.
