The political operative said incumbents such as Sens. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) and Dean Heller (R-Nev.) could pay the price.

Ugh. Doubling down on my tagline.
The “more spending by me= more votes for me” Party speaks!
Scott Brown what’s the difference he didn’t vote with Republicans when it really counted.
This is very illustrative of the left in this country. They cry and moan about Social Security and Medicare, yet, apparently they do not want to pay for it, which is precisely what payroll taxes do. If I was the GOP, I would just hammer on how the left wants to take money from old people.. No, wait, I mean how the left wants to KILL old people and the sick by not paying for their benefits.
They LOST the chance to win the Senate in 2012 with the sell-outs and the RINOism. They ALL are a bunch of pussies, in my book.

The GOP doesn’t want control of the upper chamber. They never have. The GOP helped the dems keep it. They’re all in on this sham together and we’re the fools who keep believing they’re looking out for our best interest.
The Senate GOP CREATED the issue by agreeing to a two month extension - because it is incompetent when it comes to forcefully argue its own good reasons for NOT agreeing; thereby giving the advantage to Harry Reid and now they join with Harry Reid in blaming the Democrats’ biggest opponents - the Tea Party folks, for their own - Senate RINOs, self inflicted problem.
Every GOP senator can rot in hell for all I care. They are beneath contempt. Damn Mitch McConnell. And double-damn John Boehner for caving.
