The political establishment got the best of the Tea Party in the budget negotiations. They blinked and blinked, and then voted for the deal. They blinked on Planned Parenthood funding. Why not pull funding from Planned Parenthood ? It is primarily an abortion mill. Why the exemption ? Why should values not be a part of budget negotiations ? The second blink was the agreement by many of the Tea Party and Republicans to pass a bill without significant budget cuts. Just another public relations stunt.
Now, Wall Street, along with the political establishment, which is heavily made up of Wall Streeters, are keeping the phones buzzing to raise the debt ceiling and to raise it to the tune of 2 trillion. Also, to raise it soon, before the mid-May projected time it must be raised. The Tea Party and Republicans are listening to the dire outcome of our currency, world economy, and payment defaults if we don’t raise the debt ceiling. Think the Tea Party and Republicans are getting scared ? Probably !
