Democrats and their allies in the media love to tell Republicans that being obstructionist is not politically wise... ?but is it? The Democrats don't need Republicans pass their spending bill. They need them for political cover though and they're hoping they can peel off a few Senators by cutting a few billion here or there.

Before Republicans take political advice from Obama, Pelosi and Reid, they should think back to 1993.

In 1993, Clinton pushed through a major tax increase without one single Republican vote in either the House or Senate. Al Gore even had to travel to the Senate to cast the tie-breaking vote.

How'd that work out for Bill?
