The GOP Blithely Blunders On

As Rod Dreher notes, the public strongly disapproves of Congressional Republicans’ recent performance. He cites a report on a new poll:

Disapproval of congressional Republicans’ budget wrangling after a weeklong shutdown has shot up to 70 percent, with 51 percent disapproving “strongly,” according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

It’s true that most voters aren’t pleased with Congressional Democrats or Obama, either, but both the extent and the intensity of disapproval are significantly worse for the GOP.(Strong disapproval of Republicans’ handling of things among registered voters is a little higher still at 53%.) That’s not a surprise when no one, including Republicans in Congress, can explain what the GOP hopes to achieve at this point. When Republicans are consistently on the wrong side of public opinion on these questions by a more than three-to-one margin, they must be suffering substantial political damage. Whether that damage is long-lasting or temporary depends in part on what Republicans in Congress do next.

One of the new arguments that Republicans in Congress are floating is that breaching the debt ceiling won’t result in default. Not only is this not true, but it is indefensibly reckless to pretend that the rest of the world will react to a failure to raise the debt ceiling this way. If they continue blithely blundering towards the possibility of default, they will receive and will deserve to receive the lion’s share of blame for any costs that this pointless standoff has imposed on the country.

The GOP’s Ongoing Absurd Predicament

Byron York talks to an anonymous House Republican, who explains how House GOP leaders have been repeatedly caught off guard and “unaware of what was going on”:

The congressman walked the group through a set of issues involved in the shutdown — the continuing resolution, House-Senate relations, the coming debt limit talks, and more — but what was perhaps most striking was his frank talk about how the GOP leadership got itself into its current predicament. What became clear after an hour of discussion was that the House Republican leadership’s position at the moment is the result of happenstance, blundering, and an continuing inability to understand the priorities of both GOP and Democratic colleagues [bold mine-DL].

As this House Republican explains, the leadership didn’t just misjudge how Democrats would respond to the defunders’ tactics, but they were also oblivious to what was going on inside their own party. While Cruz and his allies were putting together their plan, such as it was, the leadership had no idea this was happening, and as a result they were unprepared for it when it happened. The absurdity of the GOP’s position became clear towards the end of the report:

The crisis that House Republican leaders didn’t see coming is now consuming them, with unpredictable consequences.“We’re not in a situation that has been planned out and war-gamed and plotted, OK?” said the congressman.

No kidding. Republicans are stuck with insurgents that want the impossible and leaders that don’t know what’s going on in their own party, and together they have created a situation in which all of them appear to have no idea what they’re doing. No wonder one recent poll found Republicans trailing by 9 points on the generic House ballot.

You are such an idiot. Of course they would pass. That's not the point.

Republicans don't get to avoid negotiations by picking and choosing to act on only those items of the budget with which Democrats and republicans agree. Pretty soon the only thing left would be the Affordable Care Act. Surprise!!!

Sure, the "House floor has played host to a parade of bills to restore government functions piece by piece, accompanied by rhetorical flourishes from ardent conservatives extolling the role of government in civic life and the selflessness of civil servants." IT'S SICKENING.

Republicans have never cared about funding NIH. Republicans have never cared about funding supplemental nutrition programs for women, infants and children. Republicans have never cared about national parks. "The House votes to restore financing to parts of the government followed efforts over two years to cut some of the very programs Republicans are now trying to rescue!!"

"The House voted 407 to 0 on Saturday on a bill to guarantee that federal workers — once denigrated by conservatives as overpaid and underworked — will receive back pay once the government reopens.

At a hearing in 2011, Mr. Ross, the chairman of the House subcommittee on the federal work force, the Postal Service and labor policy, charged that “federal employees on average earned $101,628 in total compensation in 2010, nearly four times more than the average private-sector worker.”

"On Saturday, those workers were suddenly selfless civil servants: nurses and doctors saving lives, emergency workers braving natural disasters and NASA scientists exploring the frontiers of space."

"Programs that conservatives had tolerated at best were suddenly lavished with praise: nutrition assistance for women and children, federal medical research, national parks, the Smithsonian Institution, even the government of the District of Columbia, which was authorized to spend money to pick up Washington’s trash, maintain its needle exchange program for intravenous drug users and even implement the health care law."

REPUBLICANS HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO MORALS OR ETHIC. NONE!

Nancy 'grab the cash" Pelosi. Just like her daddy. We know her well around here (those of us who know the history), which is why she's a Rep from California instead of Maryland. Tommy D'Alesandro was forced out of the Governor's race, here, for allegedly taking undeclared money from a local businessman turned convict.

What about the high-wage workers? You know, when the corporations that have dropped their group plans did so, it wasn't only their low-wage workers that were hurt.
You seem to be saying that the low wage worker views the exchanges as a step up--and for many it may be--but what about those for whom the exchanges are a step down, income notwithstanding?
YOU DON'T HAVE TO PURCHASE INSURANCE FROM THE EXCHANGE! Why is that so hard for you to understand? IF, AND THAT IS A BIG IF, your employer drops your insurance, purchase it somewhere else. There are a lot of good plans out there for people who can afford them.

What's going to be interesting is seeing just how many of the 18-30 year olds buy coverage....and continue to pay premiums, come what may. I'm not optimistic. I know a lot of these folks, and they don't seem to buy much in the way of permanent things.
If you think you qualify for a subsidy, the exchange might be right for you. If not, then go somewhere else.

If you say so.

Every Democratic and Repugnant study bears it out, from Heritage Foundation to Cato Institute, which has Repugnants very concerned. They're stuck with old, white folks, Mostly old white men.

In demographic terms, you folks are roadkill, just a few miles down the road.

Instead of broadening their appeal, they stick to folks like you, who pretend data is meaningless and because there are so many independents in MD, yada, yada, yada.

Wouldn't I be paying a full, unsubsidized rate off of the exchange?

I don't pay a full, unsubsidized rate, now, as my employer covers the lion's share of the premium and I have no deductible.

See, it's the last 6 words of your post that crush it for most of the working middle class. We won't be able to afford the good, off-exchange insurance because our employers won't be covering the bulk of the premium...hence, a step DOWN to the exchanges. Wait until we all realize this.

Or wait until all of those 18-30 year olds go to the doctor for the first time and learn what a deductible is, how high theirs is, and it dawns on them that they won't use $6K in medical services in an average year and that they are paying premiums for nothing..no benefit.

“Alarming” mass die-off of starfish in areas along Canada’s Pacific coast —“They’ve disintegrated, now there’s just goo left”—“Appeared to melt”—“Single arms clinging to rock faces, tube feet still moving”— Similar reports as far away as California

National Geographic, Sept. 9, 2013:“It really struck a chord in other divers who were seeing it on Facebook and social media, both locally and as far away as California, who had been seeing similar things,”[marine biologist Jonathan] Martin said. Martin wrote to invertebrate expert Christopher Mah, a researcher at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. he said:“(The starfish) seem to waste away,‘deflate’ a little, and then just … disintegrate. The arms just detach, and the central disc falls apart. It seems to happen rapidly, and not just dead animals undergoing decomposition, as I observed single arms clinging to the rock faces, tube feet still moving, with the skin split, gills flapping in the current. We did our second dive in an area closed to fishing, and in absolutely amazing numbers. The bottom from about 20 to 50 feet [6 to 15 meters] was absolutely littered with arms, oral discs, tube feet, gonads and gills … it was kind of creepy.” Yet what’s especially alarming to Martin, Mah, and other marine biologists is the fact that this die-off might not be restricted to P. helianthoides or the northern Pacific. Fisheries and Oceans Canada is worried enough that they’ve asked Martin to go back out and collect samples for them to test in the lab.
