Boehner Explains Why He Is About To Kick Can, Fold - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture


The Speaker of the House has a plan - apparently - that enables the debt-limit "can" to be kicked 6-weeks down the line to Nov 22nd in a "clean" bill that appears dirtied by the lack of a CR for the government shutdown (though including a broader budget talks process). Democrats are already pushing for an end-2014 debt-ceiling extension that McConnell says "wil not fly." We look forward to hearing from Boehner on how this is not a "fold" and how the rank-and-file will agree to this... see you in six-weeks... (and while stocks are incapable of discounting anything that far out, T-Bills are starting to price in that reality).



As Bloomberg notes,

President Barack Obama said he would accept a short-term increase in the debt limit without policy conditions and that he would negotiate on broader fiscal and health-care policy after the debt limit is raised and the shutdown ends. Many Republicans want to tie the debt-limit increase to party priorities such as cuts in entitlement programs. It’s unclear whether rank-and-file members will agree to the leadership’s proposal.


Reid must gain support from at least six Republicans. One way to do that would be to promise votes on Republican-backed amendments that Democrats could defeat, the aide said. A second vote with a 60-vote threshold would be required. Republican leaders have been meeting with party members to talk about ideas.


Representative Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the House Budget Committee, advocates starting broader budget negotiations with Democrats. “Within the Republican caucus, there’s no agreement, and this is the challenge we’ve had all along,” Representative Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said today on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program. Van Hollen said lawmakers “shouldn’t be tying raising the debt ceiling to any specific demand.” Still, he said, “we welcome the opportunity to have a discussion on the budget.”

Of course they will fold, the fucking GOP party platform says NOTHING about opposeing an increase in the debt ceiling, it says nothing about not funding a government in deficit budgets, it says nothing about spending unlimited funds on the MIC or domestic welfare!

How the fuck do expect these people to suddenly stand for things they really don't believe in?????

Until we elect these spineless, narrasistic, weasel politicians under a specific platform, that everyone understands going in, it's a charade and all we are seeing now in Paul Ryan jockeying for attention for his run at class clown president in 16!

Republicans talk a good limited government game, but they never back it up with action. You'd think folks would have caught on by now, but too many focus on the side issues like gay marriage and abortion.

If the only area of disagreement between the two parties is social issues, we don't actually have two parties. We have one party that's figured out how to keep everyone distracted while they plug us in the ass.

That has only become true during the last 15 to 20 years. Prior there was a difference as to the size and responsibility of the government. However, as the population became less self relient the GOP found it was becoming more difficult to win elections and decided to join the Dems in their vote buying scheme. Until we the people defeat the vested interest of the Teachers Union which has indoctrinated our populus into beleiving that there is a free lunch to be provived by the "Government" we are doomed. Youir enemy and the enemy of the nation is your neighbor who indoctrinatres your children for there own interest.

Lol, your off in lala land, ya the teachers unions are just ONE of an equal dozen problems that plague this Country!!!

You want to defeat the teachers unions, start by limiting the funds they can tax out of the population, you want to defeat the big banks, start by limiting the funds they can get from spending without end politics and money printing, you want to defeat the wars without end, start by limiting the amount of taxes that can be levied and the money printing, you want to defeat the welfare state, start by limiting the taxes and money printing.......

Are you starting to see a pattern here????? Stop focusing on any ONE micro issue and wake the fuck up to the only issue!!!! We either stop spending, printing, and taxing the hell out of the Country, or nothing else matters, and the #1 way to bring it ALL to a halt, is dont raise that fucking debt ceiling another penny!!!

Maybe the strategy is to make the statists go nuts publically for another few weeks, doing things like preventing vets from visiting outdoor monuments, closing off highway pullouts that have good views, and causing crypto fascist columnists to call for martial law. It took 30 something months between watergate and impeachment, and o zero has done much worse. It is important to render this anti American shithead an object of contempt.

This is the time to stand strong and count the advantages the Republicans have for winning a delay in Obamacare.

A repeal of Obamacare is not possible while Obama is president because he will veto it; but delaying indefinitely its funding accomplishes the same purpose.

During this shutdown, the rollout of the Obamacare sign-up program has proven so bad that each day it is diminishing Obama’s position, suggesting that a one-year delay in the individual mandate is only reasonable.

Rich Lowry in Politico today (yes, the leftist website) labels the Affordable Care Act signup: “Train Wreck: the Obamacare Rollout.”

An extension to deal with the debt limit could actually give the Republicans some breathing room while more problems develop with the signups and states begin to fight Obama’s punishment technique over the shutdown.


At least one Utah county is moving toward civil disobedience in opening its national monument to visitors to prevent a substantial loss of community revenue (San Juan County).

The state of Arizona is trying hard to reopen the Grand Canyon and would fund the cost itself, so far denied by Obama but this pressure is bound to lead to confrontation.

Veterans’ groups vow to up the pressure to relieve the punishment concerning memorials and dedicative sites…

The point is this is going to get rough because the public sector now is pushing the private sector; these communities are losing money, and they are going to push back. And the Republicans stand ready to provide the bills that would provide the funding for the monuments.

These contentions over Obamacare are considerably more significant than health care; they constitute an all out assault on America’s capitalistic free enterprise contract society. It is time for everyone to pick a side - and for the Republicans to stand their ground.

This is not a fight among kids, and it is not theater; this is a fight between Americans and the only kids involved are the ill-informed, frivolous, uneducated media jackals.

One has to wonder if this was the real plan contrived by the up to now invisible evil twins of Cantor and Ryan and their brother from another mother Barry


In a two week period they have disemboweled both the Tea Party and Boner and secured the dems in power for a generation.  Can you say President Chelsea?


The good news / bad news

first the bad news - President Hillary for two terms followed by President Chelsea and or Michelle

next the good news -- those bastard republican traitors will never be in power again as the real Tea Party is about to be born

I believe this whole drama was to shut up the Tea Party folks.

Yeah, It's being strung together right now from loose strands of whiny-ass lounge lizard DNA & pulp-mill effluvia as we speak; LIVE from KochBrothers(tm) Labs! You sincerely THINK those billionaire racist fucks will let ANYONE 'ordinary' have a look in? Please. there are too many real problems that cannot be fixed by an infusion of hicks. Let's just get on with it and join the rest of the world in the 22nd Century before it's too late.

The French are envious at how quickly the GOP can surrender.  (PS- I think the French are under-rated. Most of their wars were against Germany and England.  That's a tough conference).

@Many Republicans want to tie the debt-limit increase to party priorities such as cuts in entitlement programs. -- Bloomberg

In this and in all of the banker propaganda, the lie revolves around the word “many.” Through Huffington, Salon, Network News, Washington Post, Bloomberg, etc., this Bernays propaganda machine seeks, like Toyko Rose, a.k.a., John McCain, to demoralize the Republican opposition to Obamacare. The truth is that each member of Congress, particularly now in the Republican Party, are individuals not “moderates” nor “Tea Partiers” but are trying to represent their districts and stay in office with, not their opinions, but with their votes.

Bloomberg, et al., would lump them altogether in a force to raise the debt limit, fund Obamacare and get on with the financial elites’ year-end bonuses.

@ Representative Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the House Budget Committee, advocates starting broader budget negotiations with Democrats.-- Bloomberg

Rep. Ryan is becoming the John McCain of the House, leading the fight for the Bob Rubin principle – balance the budget by cutting Social and Medicare. Like McCain, Ryan would fund Obamacare. How opportune for the Obamacare crowd that he "introduces" his "proposal" at this critical moment when the Republicans have the moral high ground.

Well,  it looks like the Red Team's desire to keep their manly crony-socialist scams going was more important than keeping the lazy brown-people from getting the same godless commy socialist health-care that the worthless OldFarts do.

Huh,  WhoCouldaKnowed.

Debt Limit

The debt limit is the total amount of money that the United States government is authorized to borrow to meet its existing legal obligations, including Social Security and Medicare benefits, military salaries, interest on the national debt, tax refunds, and other payments. The debt limit does not authorize new spending commitments. It simply allows the government to finance existing legal obligations that Congresses and presidents of both parties have made in the past.

Failing to increase the debt limit would have catastrophic economic consequences. It would cause the government to default on its legal obligations – an unprecedented event in American history. That would precipitate another financial crisis and threaten the jobs and savings of everyday Americans – putting the United States right back in a deep economic hole, just as the country is recovering from the recent recession.

Congress has always acted when called upon to raise the debt limit. Since 1960, Congress has acted 78 separate times to permanently raise, temporarily extend, or revise the definition of the debt limit – 49 times under Republican presidents and 29 times under Democratic presidents. In the coming weeks, Congress must act to increase the debt limit. Congressional leaders in both parties have recognized that this is necessary. Recently, however, a number of myths about this issue have begun to surface.
