Everything that comes out of government is a total farce and deception to US. Obama isn't playing chicken, knows exactly what he's doing with no intention of striking a deal, it's his agenda & that's it! This was the first 4 years & continues. Nothing's changed or will. While I don't trust Boehner, I think he's caught within the framework of communist's agenda & feels there's little he can do. But, if he had courage & inner strength from God, he wouldn't be weak& would be successful on conservative issues. Obama & Dems are communists & everyone must realize & accept this. Those that are in agreement with it, just forget them. We the People are the answer! Read Fallen Angels Among Us & Saint Germain on Alchemy from Summit University Press.
