"Dems do not appear to have a strategy" for overcoming McConnell lunacy on debt limit, NYT subhed says: nyti.ms/3Ey6qz0 Let's stop treating GOP bad faith as a fact of life in which Rs have no agency and that Ds are solely responsible for overcoming (NYT piece is better)
Replying to @ThePlumLineGS
We don't have to accept the idea that GOP filibusters and bad faith are natural, inevitable features of our governing order and political life, ones in which Republicans supposedly have no agency and which Dems are singlehandly responsible for overcoming. washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

of course, the strategy may be to call McConnell's bluff, and if the GOP does filibuster raising the debt limit, immediately nuke the filibuster for voting rights and debt limit.

they won't because the debt limit would hurt the gop and dems equally neither party wants the us to default, this happens every time we have to raise the debt limit. It's framed as a partisan fight when it's just both sides jockeying for press coverage to be the good guy

How is McConnell saying Republicans won't vote to raise the debt limit making Republicans the "good guys"? And why is it that only Republicans threaten not to raise the debt limit? It's not "both sides".

Mitch wants that. Democrats will still get zero GOP votes, and will get slaughtERed in the MIDTERMS. Then MM has control back with no FB.

Please - no one is going to vote against a Democrat for simply raising the debt limit and avoiding a credit default that would cripple the US & world economies. Most voters wont even know what the vote was about
