Chess? You’re playing mush ball. Read Obama the commie’s lips. He will NOT negotiate with the Republicans!! Period. He’s drawn yet another red line. Obama/Reid have taken a hard communist line, but they have no ground to stand on.
They cannot spend any public money on this communist crap without congressional approval.
The Republicans need to take an even harder line. And stick to it no matter what!!
If they cave to the commies, there’s a whole bunch of RINOs who are going to get voted OUT!!
Suspending the ACA more effectively achieves your goal. It’s like the Sword of Damocles over the economy and the Democrats heads. You won’t win the incorrectly named ‘defunding’ fight.
We need to capture and hold the House and the Senate for at least a generation. That means winning in 2014 & 2016 all the way to 2034.
BTW mush ball is 16” softball in Chicago and is a manly sport.
