BOEHNER FOLDS LIKE A CHEAP SUIT – THE U.S. HOUSE PASSES A CLEAN DEBT CEILING HIKE MEASURE!

Republican House Speaker John Boehner (OH) caved in to reality and allowed the floor vote to raise the nation’s debt ceiling today, 223-201.  193 Democrats voted in favor while only 28 Republicans joined in.
.
Boehner and Republican Majority Leader, Eric Cantor (VA), also voted “yea”.  The “Boner-Man” then had the nerve to blame the final passage of the debt ceiling measure on President Obama who would not cooperate with the House GOP’s extortion tactics involving cutbacks in Obamacare in exchange for their vote on increasing the nation’s debt limit.  The Obama Administration was long on record as stipulating that there would be no concessions granted to the GOP in exchange for a debt ceiling hike.
.
For now, Boehner and his GOP cohorts are just going to do absolutely nothing until the mid-term elections in November and then run on the simple platform that – based on what is already self-evident to everyone – government doesn’t work because it doesn’t get anything done.  Well, John, the reason that is so is because your party of misfits (GOP) simply refuses to act on or push for any legislation or judicial confirmation for that matter.  You can call the GOP Speaker, Dr. No.
.
For all practical purposes the GOP is a nihilistic party good for nothing and standing for nothing.  They are simply acting like those 300 Greek warriors at Thermopylae Pass who held off 1-million Persians.  The GOP, unlike the mighty band of “300” is not acting to save democracy or advance enlightenment but merely to shore up and solidify the ever-increasing entrenchment of the uber-wealthy and stratospheric elite.
.
2014 and 2016 are going to usher in a changing of the guard such that the GOP of today will be dismembered to the point where its national presence will give way to a strictly regional role.  Time to dust off the old Whig Party (“No Broken Promises Since 1857”).
