House members were just sworn in for their two-year terms this past January. The sweet thing about all this brinkmanship and polling is that a year in politics is an eternity. All of this finger-pointing will be long forgotten by the ignorant chattering class in 3 months. The TV ads next October will, however, be fresh.
“I’m hearing Cspan read a list of Republican names who are willing to vote for a clean CR with no strings attached. “
Boehner seems to be willing to keep the RINOs in line.
He may even have convinced them it’s a good idea.
Any RINO who pulled the rug out from under him now would be toast. That may change if the strategy doesn’t show positive results soon of course.
Did they say where they got these names from?
Each of those bills was a clean CR with no strings attached. They just funded one part of the government. Keep in mind that DC is just spending its own tax revenue, not federal money, but it cannot without permission from Congress. If they vote to keep DC ‘shut down’ who suffers most conservatives or liberals?
