Raw Politics: Will tea party back Boehner's debt bill?

Editor's note: On the same day that Speaker Boehner tried to rally the House GOP together, the tea party held a rally in Washington.

    No debt increase. If the Fed cannot exhibit restraint on runaway spending on its own perhaps the international government creditcard people, can force it with HIGHER rates and denial of further credit, just like our domestic creditcard people do to us. The cows have come home.

    The G.O.P. cannot balance the budget by coining cute phrases like "job creators ". It is also to late to be discussing budget ammedments. It is time to put the bandaid on a failing economy. Save these discussions for the post economic crisis and discussion of tax reform.

    It looks to me like we now have a three party system of government in congress, with no one party having a majority. It als looks like the Republican / tea Party coalition will not work. Isnt it then time for the Republicans to form a coalition with the Democrats to find a way forward?
