Senior Republicans believe they will be on stronger political ground if they allow a relatively clean bill funding the government to reach the president's desk and instead use the debt-hike battle to gut Obamacare.

    More likely it would do some damage to the investment plans and portfolios – as well as political careers – of those establishment RINOS who have planned their financial futures around the assumption that Obamacare will be successfully implemented and will go forward. Wouldn’t that be just a crying shame?
