The fact that the GOP house is controlled by ideologues who won't even support the one sided bill their own party drafted to make the Democrats look bad. A bill entirely crafted by Boehner which no democrat supported and the White house said it would veto.
That doesn't bode well for ultimately reaching a compromise on a bill both parties could support. It basically says the house republicans won't compromise and aren't concerned with the economic consequences or the fact that they will be holding the lions share of the political blame.
