GOP Gives President Obama Clean Debt Ceiling Increase

February 11, 2014

As it should be. 

A clean bill is the way it needs to be, should be, and to entertain anything other than a clean bill was not acceptable.  Period.

Caving into President Barack Obama’s demands for a “clean” debt ceiling increase, Republicans in the House of Representatives agreed on Tuesday to advance legislation that extends U.S. borrowing authority for a year with no strings attached.

The move marked a dramatic shift from the confrontational  fiscal tactics House Republicans have used over the past three years, culminating in last October’s 16-day government shutdown.

It came after the collapse of House Speaker John Boehner’s latest plan to link an increase in the $17 trillion borrowing cap to a repeal of planned cuts to military pensions.
