Republicans using the gun debate for cover


Like Politicians, the republicans felt it a good time to raise the debt ceiling without putting up any fight. Apparently next week they are doing a three month extension. They are going to "try" to put into the extension measures to force a discussion on passing a budget.
1. I feel they used the gun disscussion to side step their responsibility to the constituents to not just give up on debt reduction and spending measures.
2. I would not be surprised it the Obama presser on guns was in collusion with Rep party to cover spending. There were reports the dems would let it die bc they had and have no support. This was probably a look over there while we get away with this over here. Disgusting House leaders!

That was not my point. Both sides do benefit from a shift, but dems have been kicking rep arse all around cap hill on debt debate for four years. Not bc intellectually they are right, but the repubs are something other than good negotiators. Republicans benefit more from debt stuff flying under radar, but dems don't want to have to have the debate either.

The republicans didn't start the gun debate. The Dems did.
