As Republicans continue to squabble over what to demand in return for allowing our country to pay its bills, we thought these comments by Speaker Boehner were really, really interesting:
“‘There’s no sense picking a fight we can’t win,’ the Ohio Republican told members in a private conference meeting, according to sources in the room.… ‘The goal here is to increase the debt ceiling. No one wants to default on our debt.’”
Well, that’s great news! So…. don’t pick a fight! The easiest way to do that? Put a clean bill on the Floor so we can pay America’s bills. The clock is ticking, and it’s time to act responsibly.
