Spineless GOP to pass debt ceiling increase through May (Posted on 1/22/13 at 1:56 pm)
All the establishment talking heads are saying how this is a brilliant maneuver, how they are going to increase the debt ceiling for 3 months and in that time force the democrats to pass a budget. Here is what will happen:
Democrats will insist on a budget, but it must include tax increases(or new revenues as they call it). No budget will pass the senate unless there are tax increases in it. Eventually 2 things will happen: GOP will cave, and raise the debt ceiling even longer, or GOP will cave, and pass a budget with tax increases and deficit spending that does nothing to fix the problems we face.
So much for "taxes are off the table from here on out" after the establishment hacks passed the fiscal cliff "deal".
Of course all the "conservative bloggers" and other talking heads are supporting it. Just like they supported the caves on the continuing resolution and debt ceiling in 2011, and the cave on the fiscal cliff a few weeks ago.
Mitch McConnell "Taxes are now off the table" lmao what an idiot
