House Speaker John Boehner is reported to have told fellow Republicans that he won’t allow the federal government to default. He said he will see to it that the debt ceiling is raised, even if it means passing a bill with the support of Democrats and a minority of Republicans. Here’s what Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel told the Washington Post:
His speech was clear, concise, gave the right nod to his team and to his choice of Ryan. Wished Obama well, said he wanted the job but the American people chose somebody else.

Let’s hope their party colleagues in Congress get the message.
In the land of his ancestors, Paul Ryan’s Irish charm is failing him.
