How to Screw Yourself

A small note in an article interested me. If the Republican House triggers a debt default, they will be in a much weaker position when trying to negotiate the sequester.

I also wonder if triggering the ceiling might not weaken the Tea Party – righteousness is a lot more difficult if it affects your pocket book. This makes the 50 or so somewhat sensible Republicans in the House much safer when it comes to the 2014 primaries.
