In other news, the Social Security Administration is warning that it cannot guarantee full benefit payments in the event of a default.
Meanwhile, the Boston Globe has the story on how conservatives met in private early this year and planned to shut the government down over Obamacare. Objecting to a budget conference 19 times since then makes a little more sense now.
I’m reminded of Republicans getting together in 2009 and plotting to make President Obama a one term president. That didn’t work out so well for them.
