Made a bet on the debt ceiling bill,
Going 7 to 3
On a "yes" from the G.-
O.P. Caucus on Capitol Hill.
As the debt ceiling crisis heads toward the Default Date of August 2 with no resolution in sight, many are aware that this impasse has been manufactured by the Republican House majority to force spending cuts on the President and Congressional Democrats. However, some extreme GOP representatives appear to want to force concessions on their Speaker as well. The Wall Street Journal reports that Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Jim DeMint (R-SC) wrote to House colleagues that Speaker John Boehner's plan to cut $1.2 trillion in expenses doesn't go far enough. The GOP may yet vote "yea" on a budget compromise, but don't bet your life on it.
