Re "Under pressure, House GOP now weighs debt deal" (Page A2, Oct. 10): I woke this morning to read that House Speaker John Boehner had something up his sleeve. I was thinking, 'Wow he has finally got it?" But alas, lunchtime came and there he is on TV trying to explain to us what is up his sleeve. What he had up his sleeve was what he has had up his sleeve yesterday, a week ago, a month ago, since 2009.
So what is going to be up his sleeve next? A white rabbit? Well, at least that will be better than what he has had up there so far.
