"House Republicans Squandered Their Leverage
House GOP could have pocketed a pretty good win

Speaker John Boehner and House Republicans should have taken yes for an answer.

Instead, they've deeply damaged their political brand and bucked up a previously-desultory Democratic opposition.

Before the federal government shutdown began Oct. 1, and weeks ahead of the Oct. 17 date pegged by the Treasury Department for potential debt default, House Republicans had already extracted serious budget concessions for their Democratic rivals. President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats had agreed to continue funding the government at the $986 billion level that expired Sept. 30.

That's the sequester level - meaning significantly lower budget line that was part of the New Year's "Fiscal cliff" deal. It's a spending level Democrats never liked but were willing to continue with in order to stave off a shutdown - and the exponentially worse calamity of debt default.

But a relatively small band of congressional Republicans, led by Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, insisted that funding of the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare - be included in any deal. This was a fool's errand from the start. President Obama was never going to allow his signature domestic achievement to be stripped away through routine budget and debt ceiling negotiations - or any other way, for that matter.

All the standoff has earned Republicans is seriously plummeting poll numbers. An oft-cited Wall Street Journal-NBC News survey found Americans have come to hold a harshly negative view of the Republican Party during the government shutdown, giving the GOP a far larger share of the blame for a political brawl that many believe is harming the economy. By a 22-point margin (53 percent to 31 percent), the public blamed the Republican Party more for the shutdown than President Barack Obama - a wider margin of blame for the GOP than the party received during the poll during the last shutdown in 1995-96.

And the fiscal crisis has stiffened the spines of Senate Democrats. The Washington Post reported Sunday that President Obama and congressional Democratic leaders, in their ongoing showdown with Republicans, now have a goal beyond protecting the health care law, reopening the government and preventing the first-ever default on the nation's debt...."

The House should not be trying to pass legislation as part of the budget process. Wrong place, wrong time.

So, the answer is 'yes' we should "raise the debt ceiling free and clear without any concessions to cut spending first or give Republicans any say in this massive partisan law."

Obama made a huge mistake by letting the ReTHUGS hold the country hostage during the last debt ceiling debate. Hopefully, he won't make the same mistake twice. It is time for him to put his foot down and say "no". If he doesn't, we will continue to down this path over and over and over again. It's wrong and it must be stopped. The House doesn't get to rewrite their rules and procedures just because they're not getting their way.

90-Year-Old World War II Veteran Speaks Out Against GOP's 'Repugnant' Actions In Shutdown

Last week, lawmakers rushed to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. after hearing that a group of Honor Flight veterans were unable to get to the memorial because of the shutdown. They took photos at the site, and Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) attempted to gain some political points by castigating a park ranger and blaming her for blocking the veterans from the site, which was closed because of Congress.

Ranyard, who has taken place in Honor Flight and visited the memorial, wasn't convinced by the display.

"They were dishonoring the memory of those who died in World War II," he said. "You don’t use the memories of fallen troops as a political prop. I found it utterly repugnant, and it is why I felt so compelled to be in this ad."

Don’t look now lad but your republican, Tea is headed for the archaic dust bins of another failed political party. Dragging the standard republican party down with it that come 2016 they still will not have fully recovered. Gallup poll shows congress at 11% disapproval with 70% holding GOP responsible for lost of leadership capabilities. All they have exposed as leadership from 2008 is obstruction with no foundations and since 2010 they have become the party that the “Tail wags the Dog”. Can not even govern their own party and they want to govern the Nation? LOL give me a break. LOL

You are having another Obama "learning to ride a bike" moment here.

Here is the Washington Times article-

"Now, more officials are saying that Americans should be able to read and understand how an important precedent was established under the 2001 USA Patriot Act, which was passed after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“The original legal interpretation that said that the Patriot Act could be used to collect Americans’ records in bulk should never have been kept secret and should be declassified and released,” Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore) said in a statement to The Washington Post.“This collection has been ongoing for years and the public should be able to compare the legal interpretation under which it was originally authorized with more recent documents.”

Kollar-Kotelly told associates this summer that she wanted her legal argument out, according to two people familiar with what she said. Several members of the intelligence court want more transparency about the court’s role to dispel what they consider a misperception that the court acted as a rubber stamp for the administration’s top-secret spying programs."
