GOP: We've been lying all along ... Boehner's admission that we
don't really have a debt crisis reveals his party's ulterior,
program-cutting motives ... I never thought I'd write these words, but
here goes: thank you, John Boehner. Thank you, Mr. Speaker, for finally
admitting on national television that all the fiscal cliffs,
sequestrations and budget battles you've created are, indeed,
artificially fabricated by ideologues and self-interested politicians
and not the result of some imminent crisis that's out of our control.
America owes this debt of gratitude to Boehner after he finally came
clean on yesterday's edition of ABC's "This Week" and admitted that "we
do not have an immediate debt crisis." (His admission was followed up by
Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, who quickly echoed much the same
sentiment on CBS' Face the Nation). – Salon Dominant Social Theme: The US debt is no big deal.
