Idaho Republican Rep. Mike Simpson was for chipping away at Obamacare during the continuing resolution fight before he was against it.

On Tuesday, the GOP congressman told a Capitol Hill publication that he supports voting for a continuing resolution to stop the partial government shutdown — even without provisions defunding, delaying or stopping parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law.

Idaho owes us better than this. I would expect it out of CT, IL or even OH. But Idaho should be rock-ribbed Steve Symms conseratives.

His strategy is to fold. If he thinks the Democrats care about negotiating in good faith, he’s naive at best and crazy at worst.

Every day more and more people learn what the NSA has on them. That’s why we’ll see them flipping one at a time. And each flip is a PR point for obama.

What gives with these Mormans anyway? Flake (AZ) and Hatch (UT) didn’t even show up to vote on one of the bills last week (one to do with Cruz). Does Reid have that much power over that church, or enough money to take care of things?
