MSNBC's Rachel Maddow decided to take Speaker of the House John Boehner through some very easy math and help him count just how many Republican members of Congress are on the record saying they'd be willing to vote to fund the government with no strings attached.

I don't know what kind of game Boehner thinks he's playing, but it be nice if he put an end to it immediately before he blows up our economy, unless of course that's exactly what the plan is -- just blow it all up and let their Koch masters buy it up in a fire sale.

Can you help us out?
