Is Vox a Cynic? Is Water Wet?

Just one snippet:

This is why Republicans cannot, in good conscience, permit the raising of the debt ceiling, even if the suggested promises of severe spending cuts and balanced budgets were genuine. The promises of future fiscal responsibility are worth no more than a fraudulent mortgage-backed security, and only the most politically naïve will believe that even the most binding guarantees on future congressional actions are anything more than transparent cover for elected Republicans to betray the tea party and their fiscally conservative base.

The red-highlight language is a tell. He's right, of course.
