The GOPe does have a primary problem. I, for one, am going to vote for any same-party challenger to my two Senators, even my representative if he votes for anything in the way of a debt ceiling increase without a 1:1 reduction in spending. I’d sooner see a Democrat in those spots if they are going to act like Democrats.
At least I’ll then have something tangible to blame instead of a bunch of no-ball spineless bastard RINOs who have the gall to call themselves ‘Georgians’ while living it up 99% of the year on the DC high of being second in power.
I vote against Tom Cole (my RINO representative) every chance I get, because he’s a reliable vote for the mushy middle (voted Yes on the fiscal deal). He likes to claim he’s a conservative, but he’s a compassionate conservative, aka fiscal liberal, in the Bush mold. Unfortunately, prying one of these losers out of their cushy DC jobs is a major undertaking.
Anything less than a 1:3 reduction in spending is like reducing the speed to oblivion by 0.5 mph...
