The Republicans are starting off 2013 with a whimper. First the cave on the whole ‘fiscal-cliff’ deal on New Years Day, and now they cave on the debt ceiling already! The cowardly Republicans are all ready to give Obama a raise in the debt ceiling until May 19th, with no strings attached, no cuts, nothing! The vote will take place on Wednesday.
House Republicans post bill to suspend US Debt Limit until May 19th.House will take up Wednesday.
