You know, the Republican stance that they will not vote a budget to keep the country running if Obamacare is included is political suicide. In case the Republicans have forgotten, Obamacare is the law and was adjudged so by the Supreme Court. If the Republicans hold fast to their ridiculous conditions – and I hope and pray they do – they will most certainly alienate the majority of voters in this country and lose again in 2016.
I predict after that crushing loss, they will finally wise up and realize the tea party is the source of their party’s and this nation’s ills and voters will ultimately vote tea party candidates out. Perhaps then, and only then, the president – whoever that may be – and the Congress can get back to the business of running this country in a spirit of cooperation and compromise – the only way this country can operate.
