Debtpocalypse Open Thread

The House is garbaging around with Boehner's revised plan. There will be voting! And then the Senate will drink Boehner's milkshake. Or something.

This is an exercise in futility, because even if the legislation on the table passes the House, it won't pass the Senate, and, even if it inexplicably passed the Senate, Obama would veto it. It's a huge waste of time, orchestrated by people with balled-up paper towels where their sense of decency should be.

Anyway, here's an open thread for discussion, if anyone still has the energy to talk about this nightmare.
