Boehner needs to learn how to negotiate with the devil. You do nopt compromise yoiur principals. Pass Obama's plan exactly the way he wants it and have the entire Republican caucus vote PRESENT - pass it along to Ried. Ried will not put it up for a vote because there will be no Republicans to blame when the economy tanks. Ried and Obama know that their plan is a disaster, but their game plan is to foist that disaster upon Boehner. Don't play the game - stand down and let them have their failure.
When the economy fails it will be Obama as president who presided over a depression, not Borhner. When will that idiot wake up and realize that?
