I actually think this is a terrific move by the speaker. He extends the default hammer by six weeks. Just shelves it for later. Keeps all the focus on the budget and shutdown and gives time for the horrible rollout of Obamacare to sink in for the masses. Obama and the Dems are losing the shutdown battle. Boehner just closed up another front and sticks with the battle we’re winning. In six weeks we can begin to win the debt battle.
I agree...the shutdown continues and Americans have another 6 weeks to see that we can survive despite 17% of the Gov't not working.
Plus the one year delay for the Obamacare mandate is still alive.
And last but not least the GOP is seen as being the adult in the room by allowing for a 6 week reprieve and Obama is viewed as a petulant baby.
