Don't expect the Senate to be receptive. When the Senate worked hard to pass legislation that was more than fair, the House republican'ts sent it back to them. What we are seeing is house republican'ts finally doing some work!

Read the Constitution Stupid.. I also happen to think we have elected a lot of Stupid ignoramuses who haven't a clue about what the Constitution says on our side, and with the Spineless Speaker using his Whine about only having 1/2 of 1/3rd of the government proves that he does know what it says and is using it to deflect us from going after him about not using his power, that of the purse. Which tells me that Power is more powerful than the Felon in the W H and Dingy Harry. Why isn't he and the wussies in leadership NOT using it, instead of rolling over like piddling pups?

Only according to that archaic document written by evil white male sexist pig slave-owners.

Despite talking for months about using the debt ceiling as leverage to get Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to pass a budget, spending cuts and entitlement reform, House Republicans are expected to vote on a temporary debt ceiling increase tomorrow.

House leaders on Monday unveiled legislation to permit the government to continue borrowing money through May 18 in order to stave off a first-ever default on U.S. obligations. It is slated for a vote on Wednesday.  

Although President Obama is getting a temporary break from the debt ceiling fight as a result of this...
