It’s winter and I now realize I don’t have enough wood in my wood shed to stay warm. Do I use the wood I have to stay warm today, or do I save it for the next power outage?
The Republicans in the House of Representatives have a similar problem. Do they use their “wood” now or do they wait for the next power outage. I don’t know about them, but I will use my wood today to stay warm and I will try to get more wood in the future.
If the Republicans are waiting for the next election to maintain the majority in the House and possibly win the Senate, I would suggest they are dealing with too many unknowns. Elections, being elections, are unpredictable.
I would suggest the Republicans use their “wood” now, and put President Obama in check. The Republicans in the House should stand up for republican values now and not wait for the next power outage. If the Republicans lose the Senate and the House in the next election, then they would have lost everything and the Republicans will lose Republican registration since today’s Republicans failed to stand up for republican values.
President Obama will not submit a budget, which is the condition the House Republicans have stated before the debt ceiling is extended. If he does, it won’t be anything that can be passed, but he will be able to say he submitted a budget.
I am going to use my “wood” today and I will try to get some more wood in the future. Our House Republicans should do the same.
