    • There's no Obama bill.  There's nothing set down on  paper.  So the Reid bill will become the Obama bill.  The Boehner plan  will become the Obama plan.  I think that's the trap.  And, of course,  the establishment, Republicans are all gung ho.  "Gotta get this  done.  It's the best we can get."  Because they're telling themselves  there aren't any tax increases in it, and there aren't.  There aren't any  tax increases in the Boehner bill.  And there are spending cuts and there  are caps, but what happens when that goes over to the Senate and Reid says, "You  know what, I like some of this and I don't like that. Let's take some of this  out and put some of this in," and gets his votes for it and the Boehner bill  becomes something unrecognizable, then goes back to the House, what are they  going to do?  They've already passed the Boehner bill under the guise that  we can't wait any longer, that AAA credit rating is in jeopardy, all this rotgut  BS.  

      So that, essentially, is where things stand. Now, back to this  Daily Caller story. The one thing in the Boehner bill, and Democrats don't like  this, is that the debt ceiling doesn't get raised enough to get us through the  2012 election. In other words, the Boehner bill is not a full-fledged Obama  Re-election Lifeline Bill. But that's what Reid wants to turn it into. Now  they're attacking that aspect of the Boehner bill by saying that the Republicans  want to destroy Christmas. "House Speaker and national grinch John Boehner is  planing [sic] to spoil Christmas, White House officials are claiming, as they  try to head off passage of Boehner's two-stage debt ceiling bill.
