Washington Post: Boehner abandons efforts to reach comprehensive debt-reduction deal
There simply is no reason to support Republicans anymore. They were put into the House Majority to repeal Obamacare . . . The Debt Ceiling issue presents the only opportunity to get that done NOW. . . but now the GOP is caving in on even cutting spending significantly... The GOP has outlived its usefulness as an alternative. Most likely a third party will rise, split the GOP votes, and continue the country down its current path, despite the voters' desires last November to change course.
