Debt Kamikazes: Tea Party (Again)
“McConnell needs to be sent home,” says Mark Meckler, cofounder of Tea Party Patriots. “It’s an embarrassment. It’s an abdication of governing responsibility.” He is just as dismissive of such House GOP leaders as Speaker John Boehner for their willingness to compromise: “These guys are out of touch with reality.”
The context is the potential for a compromise on the debt ceiling.
The irony, however, is remarkable, given that not finding a way to raise the debt ceiling would actually be “an abdication of governing responsibility” and not understanding that fact is the very definition of being “out of touch with reality.”
