Not going to work.
You claim that Republicans are going to lose because they don't have the "messaging". So instead, surrender and draw the line in a CR debate? What will have changed? The media will still be in the tank for Obama and blame the Republicans for everything.
If Republicans can win the messaging now, they never will. Never have the facts been so clear and completely the opposite of what the Democrats claim. We will NOT default. We will NOT be late on SS and health benefits. We have more than enough revenue to pay for that.
Draw the line now and force OBAMA to choose to hit the limit. And never say default. Don't use their words because it is simply wrong and just plays into their hands.
