If the GOPers in DC don’t pass the new Boehner bill, it will give Obama a leg up. Sucks and it is not everything everyone wants, but that’s how it is, for now.
People need to wake up and understand that Obama is playing a game….it’s one we shouldn’t be playing, but the POTUS is playing it. The Republicans, Tea Party, etc., have not been able to message and show to the majority of the public that the sky won’t fall in if the debt limit isn’t raised, so you have to pass something and work to make it better. Until we control the White House or the Senate, fiscal conservatives won’t win…so you play the game to win and win BIG in 2012.
We need to pass it, they know it, and we are telling those who vote for it that we’ll get a primary challenger. I don’t care about this vote, I care about what they’ve been doing before this…Obama & the Senate have pushed the House into a corner. When we only control 1/3 of the pie…we have gridlock and have to move something forward.
Look at the Cut, Cap & Balance bill….House passed it, Senate voted it down. WE HAVE to keep sending up passed bills to demonstrate it’s not Republicans who aren’t willing to budge and negotiate. The Cut, Cap & Balance bill was a great start, but it’s not going to happen until we control 2/3 in DC.
We have freshman like Congressman Tom Graves screaming he won’t vote for it because it doesn’t have the balanced budget amendment…ROOKIE business mistake. Graves and other freshman need to put forward a CLEAN balanced budget bill, get it passed and send it to the Senate and POTUS. Let the Senate and/or POTUS show the American people they aren’t willing to balance a budget.
The house passed Cut, Cap & Balance – Senate voted it down.
Keep sending up bills and let the American People see it’s the Democrat controlled Senate that won’t cut spending, won’t balance a budget, etc.
PLAY the game to win in 2012…Fiscal conservatives CAN’T win when we only control 1/3. Should it be a game…NO, and that’s another reason Obama must go.
WAKE UP guys…communicate, message, make a stink! But stick together right now.
I hate it and want it done right, but we have to move forward to have the opportunity to do it right and get it done.
