If the Republicans cave on this it will be the end of the Republican Party. The historic level of win in 2010 was because of the out of control government expansion by Obama-Pelosi-Reid. If the response is to give Obama carte blanche on spending then the Republicans may be around for the next election cycle or two but after that will be as numerous on the ballot as the Whigs.

Come to think of it, that is exactly what Obama is pushing for. His social security and default scare tactic is to get the Republicans to cave knowing that is his only chance of re-relection. The Republican base will abandon the party and the “anybody but Obama” votes will be split among Republican and Tea Party candidates. On the other hand, if the Republicans prevail in this fight Obama may lose some of his base but will take credit for any improvement in the deficit and economy. Still, I would rather see a NO to increasing the debt limit and the Republicans directing the Treasury to pay the debt, social security and medicare, and active duty soldiers first out of current revenues. We would have a balanced budget amendment without the amendment.
