Treasury Secret Timothy Geithner said yesterday that a deal on the debt ceiling was pretty much fait accompli.
I started a stop watch.
It took less than one hour:
[Rep. Paul ] Ryan (R-Wisonconsin, and is there some fucking hallucinogen in the cheese lately in that shithole state?????), however, on CBS' Face the Nation, told Bob Schieffer something very different. He said that Republican leaders had not told him, as Geithner said they had told the president, that they would not stand in the way of a debt limit increase. Then he said that any debt limit increase would have to come as part of a deal to limit future spending.
I could have used an egg timer instead.
