    Looks like McCarthy can’t whip up the votes for Boehner and the establishment Republicans own bills.

    He should just seperate himself from the train wreck that is the establishment GOP.

    I don’t see the problem with going over the fiscal cliff. Democrats get a return to Clinton era tax rates and Republicans get a return to Clinton era spending rates.

    There is no establishment GOP anymore. That’s their problem. It’s a loosely knit coalition of theological thugs, more than a few paranoid racists the Democratic Party was frankly glad to exit the party, some extremely wealthy egotistical money-grubbing fanatics who play off the worst fears of the previous two groups (as well as profit off of them), and a couple of people who are afraid to reveal themselves as what used-to-be-moderates. That’s the problem with today’s GOP. It isn’t a party, it’s an asylum.
