I hardly ever write Daily Kos diaries (actually have only ever written one). Today I felt like spending a few minutes. Alas, here it is:
Yesterday Mitch McConnell proposed that the President could raise the debt ceiling without any cuts whatsoever. The Republican base went apoplectic. President Obama for the win!
So yesterday John Boehner announced that he will no longer be going for the so called “big deal” to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years. He was unable to sell this deal to his caucus because they want to protect tax cuts for the rich. This proves that Republicans were never serious about deficit reduction anyway.
President Obama continues to be the only adult in the room.
