View Full Version : Dick Morris: What the GOP should do now

10-11-2013, 06:39 PM
The Dick Morris haters (as regarding which, there is surely no paucity) will doubtless recoil; but I believe that Morris has some useful suggestions for the GOP, as regarding both the partial government shutdown and the upcoming debt-ceiling battle:

1. End the shutdown immediately by passing a Continuing Resolution to fund the government EXCEPT that the subsidy lawmakers get for health insurance should be ended. The public will applaud this and God grant that Obama is dumb enough to oppose it!

2. Agree to the six week debt extension but demand in return $70 billion of spending cuts (dollar for dollar with the debt increase) AND demand that Treasury Secretary Liu commit to prioritizing the use of tax revenues to pay debt service interest in the event we bump up against the debt limit ever again, ending the risk of default.

3. In the long term debt talks, demand a dollar for dollar cut in spending for each increase in borrowing. And seek:

a. An end to the Payment Advisory Board in ObamaCare, the so-called death panels. Obama hasn't even appointed it yet.

b. Repeal of medical device tax.

c. Keystone pipeline approval.

4. Let ObamaCare die of its own troubles. Very few are signing up and the system can't work without many more signups. Let it unravel on its own.

Very good advice, in my opinion.

Actually they are, they won their elections too

I say if they can't get any concessions and the Democrats want to keep up with trying to be dictators?

only in the belt way are we seeing the total meltdown of just the GOP,

In the fly over states, and even here in MI the President has taken as big of a hit as the GOP and the DNC is not far behind.

It they keep the house, which is likely with the way the districts are set up, leave it shut down for 2 more years.

At this point there is nothing to loose

pass everything and we are on a fast track to insolvency, at least when the Debt ceiling hits, they won't be able to afford the police and rangers that they have out in the public trying to cause people as much pain as possible.

Wonder if the State Police were able to get the rangers out of the national forest in the UP, the citizens decided that they were not allowed to use the state roads that went into and out of the national forest.

So they had to go camping for a while

Don't raise the Debt ceiling and don't approve the CR!
