It may appear that House Speaker John Boehner's plan for increasing the debt ceiling is a hopeless series of gambits, each discarded within days or sometimes hours.
But do not be alarmed! Boehner is meeting with his members right now and has things firmly under control:
Mo Brooks wanted to switch sequester offset w immigration fraud prevention offset— Jonathan Strong (@j_strong) February 10, 2014
McClintock stood up and said vote to raise debt ceiling is a vote to raise taxes... These two short speeches define divide— Robert Costa (@costareports) February 10, 2014
Boehner tells speakers to share their plan, if they have one... clear from inside room that no alt plan emerging, just unease/exhaustion— Robert Costa (@costareports) February 10, 2014
By the way, is there anyone onboard who knows how to fly a plane?
