G.O.P. Rethinks ‘Make U.S. Default’ Strategy

Jonesing for the rush of another ride off a fiscal cliff? The guys who run the House of Representatives are going to disappoint you, again.

Backing down from their hard-line stance, House Republicans said Friday that they would agree to lift the federal government’s statutory borrowing limit for three months, with a requirement that both chambers of Congress pass a budget in that time to clear the way for negotiations on long-term deficit reduction.

Pussies.

    Seems like being the new DB staffer is a bit like being the new analyst on a trading floor, what with all the abuse and all. On the upside, the commentariat can't also flush his head down the toilet. On the downside, he can't earn the chance to take a massive coin-flip punt with the bank's money and share the upside.
