ransomnote

House Republicans are reportedly have more than two dozen demands in exchange for not destroying our economy by raising the debt limit.

The list — as illustrated above by MaddowBlog‘s Steve Benen — is basically the Romney Plan and it effectively ignores the fact that in order to keep the government open, President Obama and Senate Democrats are agreeing to keep the automatic cuts known as the sequester. Republicans want more in exchange for doing what Congress has done over and over without any risk of default.

The president has insisted that he will not negotiate on the debt limit and the Democratic National Committee is trying to focus on the “ransom demand”-like nature of the GOP’s tactics.

I was so inspired by the GOP’s chutzpah that I offered some #GOPDemands of my own.
