I disagree John, that we should let Obama have his way on taxes and spending.
There are two better solutions. First is to use the House's power of the purse, and only fund the government that's needed. If Reid's senate doesn't pass it or Obama vetos it, then Democrats shut down government, and government checks stop or are only partial payments.
Second, don't vote to raise the debt ceiling. This forces Obama/Geither to choose who gets their checks or partial payments.
My prediction - RINOs will cave because the like the spending, and don't care to cut it.
