The Republicans should hold a presser every day and speak out forcefully (that leaves out Boehner and McConnell), throw up their hands and point out the obstructionism of Reid, Obama and Democrats and identify each of the more than 30 bills passed by the House that the Senate has refused to even schedule a vote on. They should say they will wait for a fair and balanced response or proposal is received from the Democrats. If there is no response, then let the cuts expire. If attacked, emphatically point out that this is what the electorate voted for. Blame it on the voters and those they voted for. The voters are to blame for their own stupidity and should suffer the consequences.
