The giant debt ceiling increase rolled together with a budget deal was introduced at 11:36 p.m. Monday, in the dead of night, several congressional sources confirm to Breitbart News.
The text is 144 pages long and increases the debt ceiling beyond when President Barack Obama leaves office, all the way until March 2017. It also, according to Politico, increases spending by $50 billion this year and $30 billion more the following year.
As AP reports, House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) is pushing for a Wednesday vote, this would be yet another instance in which he has broken his promise to give members and the public three full days72 hoursto read legislation before voting on it.
We will ensure that bills are debated and discussed in the public square by publishing the text online for at least three days before coming up for a vote in the House of Representatives, Boehners Pledge to America reads. No more hiding legislative language from the minority party, opponents, and the public. Legislation should be understood by all interested parties before it is voted on.
In a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February 2010, Boehner also promised that three full days meant at least 72 hours.
By scheduling a vote on Wednesdayany time before 11:36 p.m. on Thursday, actuallyBoehner would be violating that pledge.

Time to flush the toilet.
But Bonehead says it’s bipartisan and is good for America!
Like their news dumps Friday afternoon and passing Obamacare Christmas Eve, 2010 ... like rats, they work best in the dark and at the twelfth hour.
Because we have Congress-mandated `low-flow toilets’ we may have to flush 2-3 times to get these king size terds to go down.

So Boehner is giving the Klown $100 billion? I hope he can afford it! Someone should point out WE WILL be sending him the bill.
Do you mean the Republican Party will support this budget?
The time is coming when the Republican party will be irrevocably split. The bozos trying to maintain their power and rake in the lobbyist dough will have destroyed their power base and Democrats will run wild, as they do in CA.
This will be the legacy of Boehner, McConnell, McCain, Alexander, Hatch et.al.
Boner should have been shown the door, immediately, when he announced his intentions to leave. He stayed and now we're being screwed, yet again, by the Uniparty!
The Uniparty is being led, right now, by the GOPe (Boner, McConnell, Reid, Pelosi) and to hell with the people and rule of law!
Politicians in the US are getting tired of Elections and want to take over
We all knew there was a reason he stayed on.
0bama is “pretty happy” ..
