Katie, I liked your message very much! We really need two changes in our Conservative structures and thinking. One, change management. Paul Ryan for House Speaker and Jim DeMint for Senate Speaker. Better capabilities. The next is cautionary; there will be attempts to modify Simpson Bowles. Don't allow it. Simpson Bowles is a good "Conclusion" not a beginning.
The other thing that should be pointed out. Nancy Pelosi had beliefs that were totally contrary to mine! However, I greatly admired her unrepentant unwillingness to compromise her one sided attempts! Our leadership must employ that far more if we hold authentic beliefs.
