The House and Senate Republicans have handed Barack Obama a blank check to raise the national debt as much as he wants.
Throughout last year, Republicans said conservatives should fight on the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution. They said they should filibuster the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution. They said they should shut down the government over the debt ceiling, not the continuing resolution.
After conservatives balked at their lies and the Democrats shut down the government, Republican leaders scrambled as fast as possible to throw conservatives under the bus and reopen the government. Still, they said, the debt ceiling fight was coming up and theyd hold the Democrats accountable.
Just two weeks ago, Senator Mitch McConnell claimed the GOP would refuse a clean debt ceiling increase and demand cuts and reform.
But this week the GOP caved across the board. They gave the President the right to raise the debt as much as he wants until March of 2015 as much as he wants. Republicans have abdicated their own responsibility for restraining the size of the federal government.
Primaries matter. Mitch McConnell was the deciding vote in the Senate to move forward. John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and House GOP leaders structured this deal in the House. Primaries matter. Until you defeat these guys, you will do nothing to change Washington.
If they are going to give Barack Obama a blank check, we should cancel their paychecks at the ballot box.

Everything that boehner has promised from the minute he accepted the Speakership for the second time in 2010... “We have heard you loud and clear... and promise that we will get it right this time”... were ALL LIES!
Has anyone heard of the “Ten Tell Ten” Campaign Strategy? I’ve thought about doing a Vanity Post on this. The TTT Campaign Strategy can begin with just one (Conservative) person who convinces ten people to vote for his/her (Conservative) candidate and gets those ten people to convince ten people and ask each of those ten to convince ten....... You get the picture. It will work in a city or county election or a Statewide Election. (You could have a TTT campaign strategy with Twenty Tells Twenty or Thirty Tells Thirty....) This will definitely do more than Cornyn’s and McConnell’s lying ads talking about what great Conservatives they are.
