Republican Side of the Debt Ceiling Debate is Asinine
Obama was willing to give the GOP practically every cut they wanted and nobody would budge on giving the Democrats one single concession. The Democrats wanted mostly tax increases, the Republicans wanted all cuts. Obama wanted 1 trillion in revenue increases and 3 trillion in spending cuts. The GOP didn't give Obama or the Democrats anything. They instead waste their time trying to get enough support in the House for bills that won't get off the ground on the Senate. Do they know that the Senate and Obama have to go along with it too? They are either being disingenuous and playing politics over helping the nation OR they are so stupid that they honestly don't understand that they need the support of the Democrats to do anything.
