smitherines---Did you NOT notice that Obama wants to have FULL authorization about when and how much to borrow? If that is not the ambition of a wanna-be dictator on display , then nothing is. Repubs have already allowed for more revenue, but Obama makes NO concessions. He makes only unreasonable demands. Are you too stupid to see that?
Boehner, and any clear thinking and fair minded person has a right to be flabbergasted!
