I'm betting he caves.....

The Repubs can't trust Boner! He'll surrender. Let's not forget he was there when Bush and the gang in Washington got the government into this mess.

Did you ever hear him bitch about deficits then?

That's because the public now believes that we are going bankrupt and Congress and the President need to do something about it.

They will!

They'll slow the growth of the Deficit, declare victory and get re-elected! And next election cycle they'll find something else to promise because if the deficit was that important to their survival it would have been fixed a long time ago!

No one who runs our economy will tolerate much if any change in the system. They make billions off our backs for doing nothing but manipulating our money and buying guys like Boner and Oba mama and getting them in office. They pay both Dems and Repubs in the races and always win because they will simply replace these people by financing their opposition in the primaries where most campaign expenditure laws don't apply.

Also,  just check and see how many of these stooges run unopposed or their opponents are broke, stupid, or made to look crazy. Not to say that many of  our elections are fixed to start with.

Just ask newly minted multimillionaire AlGORE!

But more importantly, you can't bankrupt an Empire by the government borrowing it's own money! You only bankrupt a sovereign nation by destroying it's infrastructure. (Germany and Japan are the most famous.)

Besides, if we were in such danger do you think anyone in their right mind would by U.S. bonds at 0% interest? We've sold out every bit of those trillions in debt because our government can always print, kill, steal, tax, sell off their assets and yes, borrow from the oil sheiks.

But it makes for many political careers and sells a lot of copy and TV time. And that's all it's about! Kind of like Jesus' second coming, Alar on your apples, we will all starve by 1975, ice age starting in1980 and ruining our suntans in Florida, rainforest drying up and sending all those rubber plantation workers running amok across our Mexican border, polar bears starving to death because the dumb fuckers couldn't get off the ice berg, something about our computers turning into Y2K killers and destroying the Internet or what ever, and now a 15 trillion dollar economy can't afford to spend enough on my generation in our old age to keep us from murdering the worthless bastards in Washington ?

Want to bet!!!!

Boehner Scales Back Deficit Talks, Citing Tax Increases -
The decision was a major reversal for Mr. Boehner, a veteran Congressional deal-maker who along with Mr. Obama had been the major advocate for seeking a far-reaching deal that would have combined a debt limit increase with substantial spending cuts, significant changes in social programs like Medicare, Medicaid and perhaps Social Security, and as much as $1 trillion in new revenues. Following a secret meeting between the two last weekend, Mr. Obama went public with his own call for a broad package.

The White House, in its own statement, followed Mr. Boehner’s announcement with the suggestion that the president would try to change Mr. Boehner’s mind in their Sunday session.

“Both parties have made real progress thus far, and to back off now will not only fail to solve our fiscal challenge, it will confirm the cynicism people have about politics in Washington,” Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director, said. “The president believes that now is the moment to rise above that cynicism and show the American people that we can still do big things. And so tomorrow, he will make the case to Congressional leaders that we must reject the politics of least resistance and take on this critical challenge.”

But the prospect of getting the bulk of his own Republican majority behind a $4 trillion, 10-year agreement was looming as a very heavy political and policy lift for the speaker who is still in his first year in the position.
