    Despite the deal with VP Biden that would have allowed a vote on both the GOP and DEM spending plans, the GOP is trying to avoid a vote on its own spending bill.

    When the far right fringe forces Boehner to pass unpopular bills out of the House, it is bound to cause problems in the Senate.

    (update)

    The Democrats won't admit we have a spending problem.

    The Republicans won't admit we have a revenue problem.

    Rinse, repeat.

    mcrain, can you source that first quote?

    Edit: never mind, found it.

    FYI: For those internal quotes you mentioned, you can nest quotes or indent them. Requires less explanation. :)

    Sorry for the missing link, I forgot to source it. I'll add it to the original post.
