    We’ll see. Right now it looks like they are dragging everyone down with them, and while the 20% to 28% of the US population that agrees with them is very happy, the rest of us are flaming mad. With the surprise delay on the Boehner bill tonight, it’s clear that if there is going to be a compromise it has to be Reid’s bill and the Democrats with a little Republican help, because there is NO WAY the Republicans will be able to get enough votes in the House for anything the Democrats will accept.

    And in some ways, thank goodness as what the Tea Party wants would fundamentally change the society we live in, and we would have to prepare for millions of hungry, homeless, sick and desperate people taking matters into their own hands.

    I’d rather we default. And I would even rather let the creative options (14th amendment, the Fed, etc.) bridge the gap than see us become (more of) a third world country.
