I respectfully disagree.
I think if we stand firm we force the Senate to vote on this. We will see where Senators stand on this, and the people will not forget.
The House needs to stand firm and not cave.
There is not much to disagree with : #17 on. Its just my best guess as to how this will play out based on the history of this and the last congress. It may or may not play out that way but my past prediction that some in the House would try to throw the ball right back to Cruz in the Senate is happening.
Now if it ends up that Reid and Obama are forced to accept defunding or even a delay of the whole O-care for a year I will post 'hats off' to the 'hell no' caucus. Winning is winning which means results.
The whole ‘Dont blink’ strategy counts on Bohner not pulling another VAWA on the CR to avoid getting blamed for a shutdown. That is a pretty weak link.
