Boehner mistakenly thinks he’s in a position to bargain on debt ceiling


Since everybody knows Congress has to raise the debt ceiling soon (as opposed to the United States of America defaulting on its loans and creating global economic chaos unseen in history), this is pretty laughable:

NEW YORK — House Speaker John A. Boehner defined the GOP’s terms for raising the legal limit on government borrowing Monday, demanding that President Obama reduce spending by more than $2 trillion in exchange for an increase big enough to cover the nation’s bills through the end of next year.

Delivering a sermon on fiscal austerity to a Wall Street crowd clamoring for compromise on the debt limit, Boehner (Ohio) firmly rejected any effort to raise taxes.

Or what, Mr. Speaker? You’ll plunge the U.S. economy into a full-blown depression just to prove how tough you are? GOPer, please.

Oh, and Dems? Don’t you fucking DARE cave on this. You hear me? You better hear me, by gods.
