SOS: Reverse Dixiecrat Solution Needed

As usual Krugman comes through:

"The question for the next few days is whether plunging markets and urgent appeals from big business will stiffen the non-extremists’ spines. For as far as I can tell, the reverse-Dixiecrat solution is the only way out of this mess."

What he means is this: that in the next few days resolutions on continu"such measures were brought to the House floor. How? The answer is, they would get support from just about all Democrats plus some Republicans, mainly relatively moderate non-Southerners. As I said, Dixiecrats in reverse.:

Will Boehner put the welfare of the country and the world economy before his fear of being unseated by the radical fringe of his party?  I'd like to think so, but I'm afraid he won't.
