The debt ceiling: We were tricked, y’all!

The Daily Haymaker, by Brant Clifton, 
American Hustle is not just lighting up the movie screens.  It’s playing out on Capitol Hill as well.
Following last week’s disgraceful surrender by House Republicans on the debt ceiling, we got all kinds of stories about how Howard Coble was the only NCGOPer to vote for Boehner’s bill.  Actually, it appears that most Republicans voted to allow others to raise the debt limit, and then turned around and voted against the debt ceiling increase.  Like John Kerry, they were FOR it, before they were AGAINST it. 

How did this all go down? Pull up a chair.  Class is in session.
