The Republican-controlled House canceled a vote Tuesday night on a plan to reopen the federal government and raise the debt ceiling after support from conservatives for the deal crumbled, leaving Washington without a clear path forward for avoiding a first-ever default on the nation’s debt.
The Republican-controlled House does have a clear path forward, it’s just that the path is so insane that no body in Washington understands its simplicity.
The Republican-controlled House plans, because the House Conservatives are such “doers“, to piecemeal the handling of the U.S. debt. This path is similar to the piecemeal starting of the government that the same House Republicans favored during the shutdown of the government.
To understand the Republican-controlled House one needs to understand that, in the minds of the now Republican-controlled House, Hurricane Katrina was not a failure of small government.
To the House Republicans (they can be now called a George W. Bush Republican majority held House) Hurricane Katrina was a failure of the people to adapt to small government.
As such, Hurricane Katrina now represents how the House Republicans plan to govern the U.S. budget, in this time of crisis.
For the Democrats, I suggest they find higher ground that is not located in Washington D.C..
