I really don’t think you understood me. I was not saying this was a good thing.

Real Tea Party folks have been utterly betrayed, even by those who are called “Tea Party” politicians.

I was afraid you might have meant it that way.

My view is that they won something here- though not much.
The bill would have been even worse without them, heck the debt limit would have been raised automatically!
No deal, no debate, business as usual...

I don’t know what more they could have done with their numbers. Even a blank-check ‘clean’ debt ceiling raise could have been passed despite them.

That they’ve come out so well positioned politically, and their enemies not-so-well, is only a bad thing if they lose their message.
