CNS story has the following graf:
Boehner appears to be in a no-win situation. Any agreement with Obama is sure to incite a revolt among hard-line tea partiers who want the full roster of cuts and an end to funding for Obama's signature health care law. And social conservatives are adamant that the measure cut off money for Planned Parenthood clinics that provide abortions in addition to the family planning services the government funds. Any attempts to outmuscle Obama with legislation that pleases tea partiers, however, would surely incite a shutdown.
We all know, Mr. Speaker, that the Gummint doesn't really "shut down." SocSec is paid, the military goes on--and of course, the Gummint will issue back-pay checks to everyone who was told to stay home.
Grow a pair, John. Call Obozo's bluff. You promised $100Bn, and you ain't delivered yet.
