A Quick Note to House Republicans
Cut, Cap, and Balance failed in the United States Senate with four votes shy of 50. The vote was 51-46 to table.
Hold the freaking line.
You only need four votes in the Senate to have a majority.
You do not need Plan B. You do not need to negotiate. You do not need to play Washington politics as usual. That got us to this point.
You have a plan that 2/3 of the American public supports. You have a plan that lets the President raise the debt ceiling.
That sounds like a compromise to me.
Hold the line. Don’t give up. Don’t give in. Don’t deal.
The only other thing the House should do is a prioritization bill in anticipation of August 3rd.
