We are at a pivotal moment in our nation's history. Blackmailed by a minority of ideological zealots who have twisted and turned reality on its head, there's an opportunity for the truth to come out in a way to reverse this tide of deceit.
It's clear that Republican's in the Senate will threaten to filibuster any reasonable bill to raise the debt ceiling by the Democrats in the majority. It's take 60 vote to close debate. The Republicans can just threaten to do so under current rules to keep a bill from moving to a vote.
Let's see Harry Reid make them take the floor and talk about how taxes for millionaires and corporations can't be raised, but cuts to safety net programs can. Let's hear the Republicans make their parsimonious case as the clock ticks down to default. Perhaps enough voters will finally hear the truth and force the Republicans to stand behind their mendacity in full public view.
If there is any time to do this it is now.
