House prerogatives

You hear a lot of complaints about being "left out of the negotiations" and the House "having a voice," but you don't hear much about the long-term unemployed. "Purity?" I think not. "Ego" seems the more likely motivator, as it so often is.

But more importantly, what is their Plan B? Because it seems to me that they aren't going to get a better deal when Boehner is second in succession to the Oval Office, and it also seems to me, in the face of nearly 10 percent unemployment -- most of whom are more likely to vote for Democrats -- Republicans won't blink first.

UPDATE: spelling
