"My advice to them would be not to play this political charade," Hoyer said at his weekly press briefing.
The way to avoid a "charade," according to Hoyer, is to vote the opposite of what you think is right.
You see, 114 Democrats are already on record saying that they support a "clean" debt limit hike. The party is also on record demanding a vote on this.
Now that the vote is scheduled, they have decided it would be hypocritical to do what they have said they would do, and what they believe is best for the country. Doing the opposite would be the highest sign of political integrity.
If this makes sense to you, congratulations. You're a Democrat.
