This will be the first test of the tea party candidates who will take office in the House of Representatives. Boehner has marching orders from the controlling elite: raise the debt ceiling or else.

Raising the debt ceiling is shaping up as a difficult early vote for the new House GOP majority. Many of the new Republican lawmakers harshly criticized their Democratic opponents during the campaign for voting to raise the limit in the past, citing it as an example of the Democrats’ recklessness with federal tax dollars.

But on Thursday, Minority Leader John Boehner (R., Ohio) said he’s been talking to the newly elected GOP lawmakers about the need to raise the federal debt ceiling when it comes up early next year.

“I’ve made it pretty clear to them that as we get into next year, it’s pretty clear that Congress is going to have to deal with this,” Mr. Boehner, who is slated to become House speaker in January, told reporters.



IMO the government should sell off some of its assets, not borrow more money.

Ron Paul for speaker of the house.

Boehner is a neo-con pure and simple. It allowed he will take up the flag of the tea party and use it to his advantage by perverting the message. Ron Paul is right not to join the Tea Party caucus.
The Republicans need a leader in the house that is going to keep newly elected congressmen in line and straighten out those already in Washington, perhaps more latter since many have already been corrupted by the system.
Boehner is a wolf in sheep's clothing, my advice to Ron Paul, don't turn your back on this man.

I warned you about this P.O.S.

Ron Paul should have challenged Boehner. Even token opposition would have clipped his wings.
