Hey, CEO's...you donated to their campaigns...just tell them next time when they come with their tin cup in hand...they are out of luck.

It doesn't matter if a roundtable of CEOs, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, or five hundred economists warn of calamity, because the tea people are too obsessed with the ACA to see the big picture. Republican Norm Orenstein, author of the recent book "It's Even Worse Than It Looks" says: "The Republican Party has become an insurgent outlier — ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition."

I agree with Texas_Techoman. They gave campaign money to these Congressmen and the largest contributor is the Koch brothers. Did they just realize who they helped put into office? They knew about the plan to use the deficits and debt-ceiling as a weapon, so they are a little late and a dollar short by coming out at the last minute. And, the six weeks offer by the Teapubs will hit at the holiday season! They want certainty in the market but that isn't just a short, temporary raising of the debt ceiling. Oh, another thing! They don't like government but there businesses are dependent on federal programs. Go figure! Sad but true!

"unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science" Beautiful. What an elegant way of saying "like a box of rocks and determined to stay that way."
