Article link: House passes Boehner bill with no Democratic votes
There once was a magic debt ceiling
That Congress debated with feeling;
I find unappealing
The wheeling and dealing,
But look on the votes as revealing.
The Democrat ‘No’ was united,
Which may seem to them as farsighted;
But they’ll be indicted
For having ignited
The crisis their vote has invited.
Republicans dealt with dissension,
And voted with some apprehension;
They battled convention,
And got our attention –
Then yielded a ceiling extension.
The Senate will take up the fighting
With speeches and sonorous writing;
I hate to be biting,
But find it exciting
They’ll need to put something in writing!
