Boehner 3.0 basically does this: Would pave the way for the debt limit to be raised, through the 2012 election, in two chunks. But it would mandate that the second increase of the debt ceiling could only occur after a balanced budget amendment passed both chambers of congress and went to the states for ratification. That’s the big difference in Boehner 3.0. Now before we get into the specifics of all of this, I want to say something to all of you conservatives out there. I want to tell you, how damn proud of you I am. Because you made this happen. The conservative intelligentsia, the conservative so-called “media”, inside the Beltway, would’ve accepted anything.
