Capitulation

Capitulation
SYNONYMS   surrender, submission, capitulation. These nouns denote the act of giving up one's person, one's possessions, or people under one's command to the authority, power, or control of another. Surrender is the most general: "No terms except unconditional and immediate surrender can be accepted" (Ulysses S. Grant). Submission stresses the subordination of the side that has yielded: "Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission" (George Washington). Capitulation implies surrender under specific prearranged conditions: Lack of food and ammunition forced the capitulation of the rebels.

Let me extend that last sentence a bit.
Capitulation implies surrender under specific prearranged conditions: Lack of spine and "conservative" media community support forced the capitulation of the patriots in the House of Representatives.
Obama über alles.

Update. I said Obama über alles without explanation initially because I had to run.

Here is a simple explanation. This "deal' that was concocted in the Senate that the HOR is about to agree to, has a poison pill for the power of the HOR* to control the taxation on those who elect their representatives who sit in the HOR. Because the population of the cities so controls who gets elected to the Senate, the localities that congressmen represent just lost a tremendous advantage.

In the near future you may come to understand that is what happens once this HOR passes a law that puts the debt ceiling limit into the hands of the Prez. It will then take a super majority for all future HORs to take it away again. Even if a rescinding bill passes the next Senate, just about any sitting Prez will veto rescinding legislation passed by simple majorities of both houses. A republic if you can keep it, indeed Dr. Franklin.

Update 2 is the asterisk above:
*Senate Debt Deal Includes Provision Lessening Congress' Power On Debt Ceiling...
