Good News, Boehner Walks
Hallelujah! Boehner left the budget talks. Why is this good news? Glen Ford explained in Black Agenda Report.
"In other words, when the debt-limit showdown arrives, pray for gridlock, which would at least mean there is still resistance to Republican extortion."
So cheer up! Obama can't, in Glen's words, ". . . face down and brow-beat the remaining defenders of the social safety net in his own Democratic Party, who have always been the most immediate dangers to his grand center-right coalition."
Let's hope Boehner never comes back to the table.
