The Speaker and friends should just go ahead and cave. Give the Dems what they want. This should serve two purposes by the mid-term elections. First, it will prove the R's are spineless and their appeasement tactics only slow down the eventual collapse of the economy. Second, things should be so bad, by then, enough of the electorate will be disgusted enough to actually pay attention to what their "honorable" Congressmen and Senators are all about. Truth be known, the R's will cave, the economy will get worse, and we'll re-elect the same liars and crooks we've always elected. A recent poll said over 50%, of those polled, would support Shrillary Clinton for POTUS. Need I say more?
