just hafta wait and see if this isnt merely posturing to save the speakership, with a monumental cave soon to come...
its not like these brilliant politicians cant understand the SOL strategies, more like they *dont* do them, for nefarious purposes...
Exactly what I am expecting unfornuately.
The problem is, and it happened time and time again with this House, is they camp out on the MOST unpopular positions until even their OWN district voters turn on them calling up screaming at them, and then they give into O everything he demands. Then its boo-hoo-hoo, blame the MSM, the voters and victim whine...
O is on TV right now rejecting this <$1M proposal.
In this case just like the SS/FICA battle Rs lost EXACTLY a year ago it is different group helping O.
calling a bill that keeps our taxes from going up a ‘tax increase’ is just plain dishonest
O on TV NOW is rejecting it claiming that “ Republicans are once again with plan B just playing politics and need to do the RIGHT thing for the American people ”
(meaning, give in to all his demands), But he says he is optimistic that the Rs will do the right thing (meaning, give in to all his demands),
what is missing is a R party leader on TV calling O out for raising OUR taxes to get his debt limit extension by rejecting this bill.
