Boehner: ‘A Lot’ Of Republicans Want To Force Default, Create ‘Enough Chaos’ To Pass Balanced Budget Amendment

Article from ThinkProgress

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said today that some members of his own caucus who are refusing to agree to a compromise debt ceiling deal are hoping to unleash “chaos” and thus force the White House and Senate Democrats to make bigger concessions than they’re already offering. As many as 40 House Republicans, especially Tea Party members and freshmen, have demanded nothing short of changing the Constitution to include a balanced budget amendment before they would vote to raise debt ceiling, even though that has zero chance before the U.S. faces potential default on Aug. 2.

Nothing wrong with a healthy fear of clowns.

I fear for the future.  Not that I haven't feared before.  But each generation brings a different set of bozos.  I have a fear of clowns.

I'm a dem. I like McCain being a realist about this deal. Not that any of those nuts will listen.
