Scratch that last post.
More symbolic votes in the Senate so the Republican establishment can say, “oh well, we tried.”
I am rather tired of pundits on the right carrying the water of liquid kneed Republicans like Boehner with the , “They only control 1/2 of 1/3 of 1/4 of 1/5 of 1/6 of the government.” lie.
The House controls spending totally. Because if they don’t approve it, it does not get spent. Yes I realize we have the “essential” personnel still up and running.
Why are they not passing one allocation at a time and foregoing omnibus spending? Flood the Senate with The Paycheck for Troops Act, the National Parks Funding Act, the State Dept issues Passports Act, …..
Let the Dems drop each in the Senate. Or, let a couple of Republicans in the Senate force them to the floor for a vote.
No what we get when the people finally stand up to evil in a big way, as they did in 1994 or 2010, we get a Gingrich or a Boehner to blink for them.
Who wants to bet nickels that when Boehner gets his next chance to force an issue, ala the debt ceiling, he is able to masterfully force the senate to vote on, and naturally REJECT, a series of issues near and dear to conservatives?
A have a notion for you Boehner, If you donâ€™t have a government shutdown you arenâ€™t pushing hard enough.
The 2012 question must be to find candidates who resolve during the campaign that they WILL NOT SUPPORT Boehner for Speaker.
