GOP Mission Accomplished

Wednesday, 17 August 2011 06:51 By Jim Cullen, The Progressive Populist | Op-Ed

Tea Party Republicans showed what stubbornness and working on behalf of organized money can accomplish as they forced President Obama and the Democrats to knuckle under on the debt ceiling deal rather than risk default.

House Speaker John Boehner, who answered to the 87 teabaggers during debt ceiling negotiations, said, “I got 98% of what I wanted. I’m pretty happy.”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans discovered the debt ceiling is “a hostage that’s worth ransoming.” Whoever is the next president will have go through the process again, McConnell said.
