Eric Cantor
Debt talks heat up, President Obama walks out. (He'll be back today.)  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell continued yesterday to push his "last-option" plan to solve the debt ceiling crisis - for the sake of the nation and his party. "All of a sudden we have co-ownership of a bad economy. That is very bad positioning going into an election." But House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, left, will have none of it. Also yesterday, Sen. John McCain made it clear that Republicans will not be moved by scare tactics, including President Obama's statement that Social Security checks can not be guaranteed if the debt ceiling isn't raised by August 2. " It's really, really unfortunate and it's demagoguery."  But both sides agree there will be serious consequences if Congress does not meet the deadline.  (More to come as talks resume today.)
