Easier said than done but the Washington Post is calling on Congress and President Obama to compromise on a deal to raise the debt ceiling:

Ultimately, the grown-ups in the room will have to do their jobs, which in a democracy with divided government means compromising for the common good. That means Mr. Boehner, his counterpart in the Senate, Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), minority leaders Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the president. Both sides are inordinately concerned with making sure that, if catastrophe comes, the other side takes the political hit. In truth, none of their reputations stands to benefit.

 The problem here is that any compromise would include some tinkering with the implementation of "Obamacare." Republicans want a year-long delay in the law's implementation. Obama has said he won't compromise on it.
