We are cruising towards the fiscal cliff. The John Boehner leadership of the House is fighting Barack Obama and the Party of Treason.

We need to understand BARGAINING POWER. What power does the Republican party have to oppose this? We must look at it in terms of costs and benefits to the Democrat party. The way to win this is to show the Democrats that by continuing this course of action, it will cost them more than it benefits them. Our problem is that we want to believe that the Democrats have the same concerns that we do. They don’t think in terms of costs and benefits to our country. The Democrats think in terms of costs and benefits to themselves and the Democrat party. You can point out the dangers to our country from this irrational Democrat fiscal policy to a Democrat for 24 hours a day, and they will just yawn. The Republicans have to make the costs TO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY outweigh the benefits to the Democrat Party on this issue.
