The fiscal hawks in the Republican Party are the fiscal wing’s equivalent of the pro-life wing’s Akin and Mourdock. They are doing immeasurable harm to the conserative cause by ensuring that 1) Republicans get blamed for going over the cliff, AND 2) we get a far worse outcome than Plan B.
We have a losing hand, yet we keep calling and raising our opponent.
This could very well cost us the House in the mid-terms.
