The Republicans latest in government-by-stunt is a House measure that Republicans will introduce to raise the debt ceiling and then vote to defeat. This is supposed to reassure investors about the soundness of U.S. investments?
With the GOP, it is always about slogans, election talking points and snapping turtle-adherence to ideology. Put down Griffin, Crawford and Womack as automaton nay votes on financial integrity.
SPEAKING OF REPUBLICANS: Here's a great deal more coverage of the GOP's loss of a solidly Republican House seat in New York last night. Democrats want to explain this by their candidate's use of the ruinous Ryan Republican budget plan to dismantle Medicare and Medicaid and cut taxes for the rich. That was a big factor, I'm sure. But the Democrats also had the better candidate. People count, too.
