This sequester situation will be the GOP's next test. It is the same situation that happened with Newt during the United States federal government shutdown of 1995 and 1996. The DemonRATs and their lap boys, the media, showed boy scouts shut out of the National Air and Space Museum. This and many other tricks turned the shutdown into a sob story to portray the GOP effort as a form of blackmail using poor Americans in their fight against Clinton on taxation. In fact, the GOP was so much maligned by the media that Bob Dole lost to Bill Clinton, giving him a second term. I am sure Boehner remembers the shutdown episode when he was then, the fourth man in power in Congress. You think Boehner would have figured out how to out smart the DemonRAT tricks
