I think this post above will take some wind out of their sails.
In a shutdown Defund everything but the stuff that the GOP claims we must cut.(Obamacare, SS, medicare, medicaid, food stamps)
I can imagine this one going badly, again.
Wind out of sails - not really - those who make that argument have not listened to the entire argument presented by Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Cruz has authored a bill to attach to the CR that does, in fact, defund the entire Act. Anyone who thinks that Ted Cruz does not understand all the legal implications does not appreciate the legal intelligence of Senator Cruz — he is a brilliant lawyer and Constitutional scholar. Things will go badly if the GOP must rely on rudderless nitwits such as Boehner, Cantor, Rove, McCain, and Graham to do the explaining. But the GOP does not have to rely on them. Cruz, Rubio, Lee, and Paul are compelling speakers.
