Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has agreed to allow a vote in the House on the emerging Senate debt-ceiling deal, according to a Senate source.

Boner surrenders on Hastert Rule. Will pass Senate plan with more RAT votes than GOP votes.

The conservatives and vulnerable RINO’s will get a pass/cover — and get to vote NO — because Bonehead will forego the Hastert Rule and let the Dims votes count.

Without a House bill the Senate bill is the only game in town.

He has to allow the vote or take all the blame for ‘default’.

The Folding Lawn Chair Party strikes again!

I hope this is the end of the GOPe. Hopefully enough conservative Repubs will get good and angry at these so-called "leaders" and dump them pronto and we'll end up with a real conservative Republican party again in 2015, in control of the House and the Senate.

Well by allowing a vote, the Dims plus a few squishy GOP members will pass this. That is the Hastert rule will be violated.

It is a big deal. Just ask Harry Reid.

What we don't want is for him to forward a bill that gets all of the Dems and a couple dozen Republicans and passes.

So, if he is smart, he will not allow any such bill to come to the floor.

Agreed, he has no choice. Has to let the vote go through. Hard to fight an egomaniac (Obama) and his trusty sidekick (Reid) when all the democrats march in lockstep.

The sequester cuts were retained! That is a GOP win.
Obamacare may die on its own weight.

We still have the House. Play it right, maybe the Senate. Certainly, won’t help if we keep gov’t shut down. Just can’t manage the PR campaign. No one cares!

We lick our wounds, learn from it and get to fight again.

Why? Dingy Harry didn't allow the Senate to vote on the House bill, and I don't see anyone but us blaming him for the shutdown.

Let the media be your guide. If the media (and that includes Fox) says someone is ahead in the polls, or if they endorse someone, or say someone is the "right choice for Republicans", or any such thing.... they are the WRONG person.

The MSM picked McCain and Romney, and appear to be picking Christie.

If he does, a majority of Republicans will vote against him.
He will not survive as Speaker, and the GOP will not survive, period.

The overwhelming numbers of Americans are against funding Obamacare, and conservatives will form their own party, placing the GOP as irrevalancy..

The House never sent Harry a debt limit bill.
They didn’t vote on one much less pass one.

Which surprised me.

(You’re thinking of the CR bill maybe.)

Once again .... the Democrat Party has proven their amazing ability to use manipulative leadership. And once again the Republican Party has proven their amazing proclivity to be a manipulated follower. This puppet-master really does excel at .... and truly is a master of his craft.

Stay tuned for:

1) Citizenship for illegal invaders who don't give a F*** about our Constitution
2) FREE health care for these new citizens (Obamacare)
3) Illegals turned Citizens get Obamacare where they register to vote as DEMOCRATS

Are they any good countries I can move to since Obama is allowing this one to be overrun by foreigners?
