Maybe everyone in Congress isn’t playing so nice? This article is encouraging.

Since there has been a lot of talk of replacing Boehner, maybe the establishment created the coup as a distraction, so they could call it off. Think about it, if there was already a “plan” or rumors of a coup, why would someone work on a second coup plan?? But… I’m sure I’m giving the dunderheads too much credit?
