Democrats: "We are all going to die!"
Dr. Peter Venkman: This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions.
Mayor: What do you mean, "biblical"?
Dr. Ray Stantz: What he means is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Exactly.
Dr. Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!
Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
The above routine from "Ghostbusters" basically summarizes the socialist policies of the Democrats. The Leftists are screaming that we are all going to die in rivers of blood unless the government teat keeps pumping cash into the corrupt system.
Many GOP legislators, not normally known for their high IQs, are at a loss for words on how to respond effectively to leftist claims of triple amputee children with leukemia needing their government checks.
Quite a few Republicans are simply incoherent on TV while other Republicans are plotting behind the scenes to cut the legs out from under those willing to fight socialism.
It may be just a matter of time until a pussy Peter King "moderate" faction of 25 or so Republicans breaks ranks and votes with the Democrats to keep the cash flowing to their districts.
Politics is a game of poker. You need to know when to fold 'em and cut your losses.
|Kick 'em where it hurts.|
It is pretty obvious that the Democrats are not going to back down on Obamacare. So be it. One must survive the battle, regroup and fight another day.
It's Nut Kicking Time
Notice that the GOP focus is on Obamacare, but not on the rest of government spending. I expected that. Republicans love spending our money just as much as Democrats do.
So I say it is time for the GOP House to pivot, pull back on Obamacare, and kick the Democrats hard in the nuts where it hurts.
How about going through the budget and yank the funding for 30 or 40 smaller but pet leftist programs in key Democrat House districts around the country. Then send that budget over to the Senate.
The Democrat Senate can vote to pass that bill and keep Obamacare and government running while fucking over their fellow Democrats in the House.
The Republicans can go on TV saying we have funded the government. Let the Democrat Senate be the ones to refuse to fund Obamacare because of a few dozen corrupt programs.
Only when you grab someone by the balls will you get their attention.
The GOP should go to this back-up plan and start squeezing leftist nuts as hard as they can.
