    Conservatives Wary of Deal

    I have never quoted the national review online before but this article caught my eye

    Conservatives Wary of Deal | National Review Online

    Speaker John Boehner may be trying to finalize a plan to raise the debt limit, but House conservatives are already skeptical of his efforts. In interviews, several of them tell me they’re unlikely to support any deal that may emerge.

    “They may try to throw the kitchen sink at the debt limit, but I don’t think our conference will be amenable for settling for a collection of things after we’ve fought so hard,” says Representative Scott Garrett (R., N.J.). “If it doesn’t have a full delay or defund of Obamacare, I know I and many others will not be able to support whatever the leadership proposes. If it’s just a repeal of the medical-device tax, or chained CPI, that won’t be enough.”

    Representative Paul Broun (R., Ga.) agrees, and says Boehner risks an internal rebellion if he decides to broker a compromise. “America is going to be destroyed by Obamacare, so whatever deal is put together must at least reschedule the implementation of Obamacare,” he says. “This law is going to destroy America and everything in America, and we need to stop it.”

    If the Republican National Committee stands with Boehner, it's game over.

    Republicans (my party) have made a complete mess. They're going to eat crow before this is over -- and the way they mishandled this? That's exactly what they deserve.

    Wow, so Republicans are finally standing up for what is right, trying to do something so we do not have an even bigger collapse down the line and this is the kind of tepid "support" you give our team for doing the right things?

    Shame on you.

    Trying to dismantle, take out the tracks that lead one way in the direction of more and more socialism is somehow now a bad thing? If Obama and Reid are willing to take us over that railway pass...well, I will agree with the Republicans, that bridge is out... better to do it now than just to sit back on those railway cars, try to pretend comfort, not looking out the windows to see the gaping crevice ahead...be satisfied with being shuffled off to our doom in a nice boxcar full of warm fuzzy promises of a utopian future ahead, somewhere, they promised... so it must be true...
