1. The Political Corollary to You Will Be Made to Care
Many of you are convinced you can sit on the sidelines or quietly take the side of the Republican Establishment in the upcoming primary season. Many of you are convinced it does not matter. Many of you are convinced that the GOP will do the right thing once they have control.
Many of you will be made to care by a Republican Party intent on writing you off while taking your money and vote.
Right now, while the GOP has stoked your anger over Barack Obama's IRS harassing conservative groups, Senator Mitch McConnell and an orchestrated outside campaign of lobbyists, consultants, and donors are attacking conservative organizations. They are harassing donors to conservative organizations. They are harassing and intimidating the vendors to conservative organizations. They are doing exactly what the IRS is doing, only with "Big Louie" knocking at the door instead of a tax code wielding agent.
They will make you care. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →
2. Hope Yes, Vote No is Not a Winning Equation
Despite the fact that the Ryan-Murray budget deal passed the House with overwhelming support, it was not a slam dunk in the Senate as of late last week. Without Paul Ryan's strong influence, individual GOP senators were leery of the deal. Even the defense hawks view this deal as 'too little too late.'
The Senate whip count began with only one Republican – John McCain – vocally supporting the deal. Moreover, it's not a sure thing that there won't be any Democrat defections either. On Sunday, Senator Dick Durbin was worried he wouldn't get 60 votes for the deal. He candidly noted that "a handful of members of the Senate are vying for the presidency in years to come and are thinking about this vote in that context and others are, frankly, afraid of this new force, the Tea Party force, the Heritage Foundation force, that is threatening seven out of the 12 senators running for reelection." . . . please click here for the rest of the post →
