Pray for House members holding strong. And thank you to them for doing so.

C-Span as well. Speculation that significant amendment will be necessary to put it over the top.

Bonehead says it’s because they are tweeking the bill again.
Or does he not have the votes yet? Or Both.

What a circus. The incompetent Boehner has mismanaged this whole thing to a fare thee well. Hannity is right; pushing all these bills makes it look like he is negotiating with himself. His ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is truely amazing.

The ruling class rides to the rescue. A pox on all of them. If this passes it will do for the tea party what the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska act did for the GOP.

That means it will be shamed again in the senate and sent back to the house. Back in Boneheads court. What is Bonehead gonna do then? Start the strong arming all over again.

YEP. NO BONER TONIGHT. GOOD WORK.

Just send Cut, Cap and Balance to the Senate, DAMMIT.

Democrat radical on CNN is now doing "homekoroshi" 褒め殺し(sarcastic, Japanese political tactic) by praising Boehner and dissing "radical Republican tea partiers".

Mark Levin thinks the senate will change the bill and send it back to the house in Boneheads court. The foolish folks who supported this bill are about to be played.

I see a lot of wishful thinking

No matter what happens we lose.

There is no way they are not going to raise the ceiling. There is no way they are going to cut trillions from the budget. Just is not going to happen.

I don’t see any possible way to win this. Nothing being discussed comes ANYWHERE CLOSE to what is needed to be done.

I don’t want to get my hopes up very high, but it is starting to look like the Tea Party Republicans are in NO MOOD to get rolled by ‘the establishment’.

It has to be hell there, but, like I’ve always said, the Tea Party Republicans have 2 objectives in Washington:

1) Clean the place up (i.e., balance the budget).
2) Go back home to their families and get on with life.

My goodness, has God Himself intervened? So many are people are praying and mourning the demise of the USA, agonizing and lamenting over our great fall from God. We are indebted to those on their knees, these quiet warriors.
Let us all thank God for Christian patriots at work in DC and in so many praying households. Who would have thunk it?

Unless our goal is to collapse the whole system. Which, of course, has a lot of risk.

There is a lot of risk being in debt 14 trillion dollars. That will rise to 20-25 trillion over the next 8-10 years.

Try to imagine THAT number. Let alone 14 trillion.

Are you kidding? I’d much rather have a whole bucket of fine, high quality goat phlegm than the weeper.

Too bad he doesn’t strong arm some Democrats now and then. I just find it odd that he’s tough with his own Party members but weak in dealing with the other side of the aisle. Boehner must go.

Levin, in my opinion has had his finest hours ever on this issues.
He is bold, smart, straightforward and unafraid.
