A Suggestion for Speaker Boehner

Speaker of the House John Boehner has a problem.  No, it doesn't have to do with the fact that he loves to cry or that his skin is the color of a pumpkin or his golf swing.  No, the problem is that he cannot lead his fellow Republicans in passing a "debt ceiling" increase that doesn't destroy the nation.  In fact, his days as Speaker of the House are numbered.

My suggestion is very simple: Offer the moderate Republicans and the Democrats a clean, stand alone "debt ceiling" increase.  There should be enough moderate Republicans in the House, along with all of the Democrats, to get the 218 votes he needs to pass the increase.  I know it will be a hollow victory for Speaker Boehner, but it would prove that he is willing to put the needs of the United States above the ideology of his "tea party" cohorts.

But its just a suggestion.
