House Speaker John A. Boehner has offered to push any fight over the federal debt limit off for a year, a major concession that would deprive Republicans of leverage in the budget battle but is breathing new life into stalled talks over the year-end “fiscal cliff.”
Really I just wish Republicans would just walk away from the whole thing. The people voted for this, let them have it. When the economy goes to hell, then Republicans can make the changes that must be made. Anything else just allows them to continue to take the blame.
