There was a rumor out there that Boehner/Cantor/et al were caving on the budget/deficit/ceiling fight, and the collective meltdown of the Unified Patriots caused a warp in the time/space continuem.
However, for right now, it looks like the reporting of the demise of our Republic and the Republican Party was premature. Guys, we cannot trust the media to tell us anything. We need to keep the pressure on, but don’t start fragging our leaders until they have well and truly betrayed us.
My project for today: I’m calling my Congresscritter and Senators (even the D one) and telling them that there had better be massive spending cuts. That we will not tolerate another year of trillion+ deficits. We are struggling out here, trying to make ends meet with fewer dollars coming in and food and fuel inflation killing us. They’d better quit pretending like the money is growing on trees, because it’s coming out of our hides and we’re sick of donating to the cause.
I know it doesn’t seem like doing much and yes, we will need to primary some people when this is over, but for right now, fear and trembling is in order. They really do take their cue as to how much fallout there will be on a vote by how hot the phone lines get. Call them.
