A close reading of the bill ending the "shutdown," signed at the 11th hour, reveals that the limit on the national debt wasn't raised after all: It was eliminated altogether.

The justifications and clarifications being issued by members of Congress over their votes yesterday reveal one simple fact: There aren't enough Americanists in Washington, yet.

House Speaker John Boehner will almost certainly bring the Senate funding bill to a vote in the House where, if Nancy Pelosi is right, it will pass with overwhelming Democratic support.

As Republican leaders in Congress were publicly fuming about congressional exemptions from ObamaCare, leaked documents show that GOP House Speaker John Boehner’s office spent months working with top Democrats such as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to ensure that lawmakers and their staff would be spared from the deeply unpopular healthcare “reforms.” Critics say the e-mails, given to Politico as an act of political retaliation, have once again exposed the political theater in Washington, D.C., for what it is — mostly a show put on for the public by two wings of the same establishment. Still, the real story is not Boehner, Reid, or even their hypocrisy, it is the bigger picture: A Congress that is deceptive, manipulative, and completely out of control.
