Kudos to Chris Wallace for exposing the deep danger the GOP represents to our fiscal future:

Money quote from Boehner:

Let's not talk about potential solutions.

Because they have none. Look at what the Tories did in Britain: they were honest and clear and now have a mandate to do what's necessary and can be held accountable for the results. These so-called Republicans have no such clarity, and no such courage and therefore will have no such mandate. Their only goal is partisan power and destruction of Obama.

If you care about the debt, whatever you do, don't vote Republican. They and the recession created it. They will make it far far worse if they get back to power again.
