In a nutshell:
Boehner and House Republicans will introduce a bill next week raising the debt ceiling for approximately three months. In exchange for a long-term increase, the Senate must pass a budget. If the Senate does not pass a budget during that time period, the House will block members of both houses from receiving a salary.
Do you think this strategy will be effective? Will the Republicans be able to get the Senate to pass a budget after 4 years?Answer Question

Booklover I need you to look up SUPER majority in the dictionary and see when the last one was. Then check out how many budgets have been passed by the current president. Then add them together and see who the hell's fault it is we are in this situation :)

Now he stands good shot of failing utterly. ad he will have nobody to blame, not even Bush. Sorry booklover.
