Stimulus and response: Government to reopen, Tea Party to close

The far right took a left hook right on the kisser today.

Custer had a better day at the Little Bighorn.

Talk about a complete capitulation by Republicans, who already have been flogged in the court of public opinion.

Senate leaders unveiled a deal Wednesday to reopen the government and avoid a potential debt default that does virtually nothing to Obamacare, leaving intact the law that Tea Party Republicans zeroed in on like Kamikaze pilots.

The Senate reached a deal to end the government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling. House Speaker John Boehner conceded that he would accept the measure, setting up a vote in the House for later in the day.

The agreement funds the government through January 15, and raises the debt ceiling through February 7.

There are also reports that the deal will provide back pay for federal workers who were furloughed during the shutdown.

Now that we stopped the Tea Party from global domination, it’s time to stop China from global domination.
