President Obama used an interesting phrase to describe John Boehner's debt ceiling bill today: "It's a plan that would force us to relive this crisis in just a few short months… in other words, it does not solve the problem."
This is a patently ridiculous statement on its face; the debt ceiling has to be raised regularly–as Obama has frequently reminded the American people during this debate. Does that mean "the problem" is never solved? If so, the GOP has nothing to do with it. Is Obama pushing for the elimination of the debt ceiling? No, what he meant to say was: "In other words, it does not solve my problem."
