Trifecta: How should the GOP fight the debt ceiling battle? Or can they?
Yes they can do it. Yes they should do it.
1. Grow at least one to replace the missing pair.
2. Realize that since we are already the ‘bad guys’ we have nothing to lose and everything (the nation!) to gain, and save.
3. Vote NO. No compromise, no negotiation, no remorse.
The Republicans have gotten on the wrong end of the blame game.
I suggest that, in the spirit of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, they raise the debt ceiling for a two year period, but in 3 month increments.
This moves the “ball” into the President’s “court” to finally find all that “waste, fraud and abuse” we keep hearing will be funding ObamaCare.
The good news is that today is half way through this administration. This is our Valley Forge moment when we shall all have to remind ourselves what we are here for by reminding ourselves what we stand to lose. If that is the good news, then what is the bad news?
Well, the bad news is that for the next 18 months, we will be engaged in a battle with the left that will make the last 4 years look like a mild disagreement. They have to win the House in 2014 and all that stands between them and their dreams of progressive nirvana is…
For the next 18 months, stand by as more Chick-Fil-A style attacks go on with the direct acquiescence and support of most of the press. Stand by and watch as the left attempts to take a meat cleaver to the people who make up the “coalition of liberty” in this country. Stand by, because if you think it was ugly before, its about to get downright orwellian.
The House GOP should weekly pass a budget tied to the debt ceiling rise, then publicly march it over to the Senate. Every week.
Just say No.
All negotiations are bogus. What happens to “sequester”?
Introduce a bill to detail how much debt per person we already have, then vote yes or no to raise the debt ceiling. See how the yes men fight for re-election in two years without the bull shit covers.
The painful reality is that there is another recession coming. It’s already in Europe.
After 4 years and $5 trillion in unfunded spending, we are back at 7.8% unemployment and 6 million fewer workers.
Frankly, we can’t afford another 4 years of “copy” – “paste”
