RE :”I’m tired of the fearmongering about democrats winning in the House. In Obama’s 6 year midterm? Zero% chance of that. Zero. The President’s party gains in a midterm only when the President is very popular and even then they gain slightly.”

That's over a year away so to some degree this was just playing in the sandbox.

Looks like this surrender bill takes away the House's power to hold up the debt limit.

You can bet GOP leadership will squash anymore serious CR rebellions till the election.

And hopefully amnesty

FY2013 interest on the debt is ~$415B, FY2013 tax receipts through July are ~$1.8T.

There’s enough money coming in to meet debt obligations. There is no need to raise the debt ceiling other than to enable greater debt.
