Quote:House Republican leaders are pushing a six-week increase in the debt limit, without any conservative strings attached, to calm jittery financial markets, according to senior GOP advisers.

The plan was presented to the House GOP caucus Thursday morning after Treasury Secretary Jack Lew warned lawmakers that he would be unable to guarantee payments to any group — whether Social Security recipients or U.S. bondholders — unless Congress raises the federal debt ceiling.

If the GOP plan goes over well with rank-and-file Republicans, Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) could put the legislation on the floor for a vote late Thursday

Boehner grew a pair for a few fleeting days. Bring social security into it (which should never be a factor to begin with.) and just the threat thereof made him buckle.
I suspect there may be more to come. It's short term funding, I can see the ACA is going to be an issue for a long time.
They either need to make some drastic changes, or abandon it altogether and allow the economy to grow.
Abandoning it would increase hiring astronomically.

BREAKING NEWS, 11:31: House Republican leaders say they will offer a bill authorizing a temporary increase in the debt ceiling, in exchange for discussions on reopening the government, funding the budget. The bill would avoid a looming, potentially disastrous federal government default. But it would not end the 10-day-old government shutdown, as the White House has demanded.

sad to say soc sec is a factor because of congress taking money from the fund and stuffing the soc sec trust fund with iou's over the years...

what boenher is proposing is a bill to fund govt for a few weeks..this will not stop the shutdown ..Obama wants a bill to raise the debt ceiling and funding for the ACA. which would lift the shut down
