But it’s NOT Republican Obstructionism – A Republican vision for America – ‘House Conservatives Revolt’
When ‘what’s important’ is what can pass a fanatical Republican House – we as a Nation are in trouble.
My hope is that regardless of the details – as long as the deal opens the Government and raises the debt at least until January 15th – it passes the Senate.
Then let the House Republicans block it.
And watch their approval drop to single digits along with 20 to 50 of them being voted out next year.
House Republicans block any half reasonable deal and democrats take back the House.
An actual Government.
“What they’ll come up with in the Senate will not get the support of most House Republicans,” predicts a House conservative strategist. “And thus, after a lot of hand-wringing, it’ll be DOA. Just like with BCA in 2011, the most important question is, what can pass the House? Everything else is subordinate to that”.
‘In a few minutes, House Republicans will meet in the Capitol’s basement’.
‘The chief topic of conversation: the emerging Senate deal’.
‘But before the meeting even begins, House conservatives are bashing it behind the scenes, and they’re pushing leadership to reject the compromise’.
‘A flurry of phone calls and meetings last night and early this morning led to that consensus among the approximately 50 Republicans who form the House GOP’s right flank’.
‘They’re furious with Senate Republicans for working with Democrats to craft what one leading tea-party congressman calls a “mushy piece of s**t.” Another House conservative warns, “If Boehner backs this, as is, he’s in trouble.”
‘But that’s unlikely to happen. As of 8:30 a.m., House conservatives believe the leadership is well aware of their unhappiness, and they expect Boehner to talk up the House’s next move: another volley to the Senate’.
