I’m seeing stray reports that GOP House members are talking about shifting from the continuing resolution to the debt ceiling. While I appreciate the never-say-die sentiment, this makes zero sense.
The debt ceiling is a bigger bomb than the CR. If the Vichy Republicans are unwilling to have a little ol’ government shutdown over the CR, they will absolutely shit their pants at the prospect of hitting the debt ceiling.
It ain’t happening. The CR is the only way we’re going to get any significant concessions.
