I hope the true, loyal, conservative Americans can muster the votes to stop this. They need to stand firm.
If Boehner goes along and then has a minority of republicans vote for this with a large majority of democrats, then it is obvious whose leader he really is when it counts.
It will prove what we here have known for years...that the leadership in the GOP of Boehner, McConnel, etc. and their enablers, consultants, etc. are not aligned with the conservative principles of the majority of Republicans or what this nation was founded upon and prospered upon. They need to be run out of town on rail and we need to purge the inner vessel of them.
It will make clear that the Democratic Party and the GOP leadership are in league to spend the nation into oblivioin, one being just a “light” version of the other.
As I say, many of us here have known this for many years and have and will continue to fight it.
America at the Crossroads of History
UPDATE - An obvious third possibility that I should have included above: The House passes a short-term, totally clean debt ceiling hike, and the shutdown goes on. Would the Senate or the president actually block such an action?
who should be the leader of the republican caucus (and thus speaker), if boehner re-signed today?
Good post. GOP is most certainly the lite side of the Democrat Party. Two sides of the same coin really.
