Boehner is wrong.
Not only is Boehner wrong, he has missed his chance to tell the real truth to the American people! With $200 billion a month coming in to the federal coffers and nearly 40 billion a month due to pay our debt interest, the United States is not going to default. BUT, like any household over their head in debt the government will have to prioritize spending to make do on what revenues it has coming in. That John avoids telling that truth to the people when he had the chance indicates soemthing disturbing: is he playing US to avoid the hard choices the Tea Party is now entitled to for sweeping the D’s out of the HOuse control? I’m afraid John Boehner is an establishment Repubican (kudos to Levin for the word) and I no longer trust him. But I’m not sold on DeMInt’s approach either. We need major reductions in spending immediately, not a two year process to reach a balanced budget amendment.
