Reid has announced he will have it voted down late tonight.

Boehner is going to push him into the light of day tomorrow.

They need more time to come up with justification to increase the amount to raise the debt limit some more?

Could it be, Boehner doesn't have the vote(s) needed? I'm trying to remain optimistic!

I’ve heard it being stated that we need more conservative/tea party members in Congress to accomplish real reform. That may be true but there are just enough in Congress to cause real headaches!

The last count I saw was that 25 GOP were holding to principles; this is enough to kill it.

Obama wants it out of the picture when it’s closer to election time. He wants to bury any reference to the economy.

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated...

This maybe a smart move. Boehner and the GOP looks as though they're working hard to come up with a bill, they pass it in the dark of night and force Reid to do something with it on a Friday morning instead of the usual Friday Night News dump.

What if Aug 2nd comes, no bill has passed, and the sun still rises?

Left unsaid is what the next move is if Boehner’s bill is defeated. How does that strengthen the GOP’s hand in the debt limit fight and how does that get us a more “conservative” bill here? I haven’t heard that explained. At the end of the day, something has to pass the Dem senate and get Obama’s signature. The real key is getting it through the senate. If it makes it through the senate, Obama will likely sign it. The trick is to get the most conservative possible bill through the senate. If Boehner’s bill blows up, how does that advance the conservative cause? And no matter what you think, it matters how Republicans come out of this battle politically. How does defeating Boehner’s bill strenghten them politically?
