“The grassroots will rise up and support senators and congressmen who will fight against the weak-minded, anti-American socialists trying to take over our country. “.......

Yes, and replace those senators and congressmen who won’t.

It is time to start playing hardball. Enough is enough.

Yes. They need to stand shoulder to shoulder because the Left will never give them an inch.

Note below [This is how the Left plans to increase the cap in the CR language and then scream that the GOP wants to “kill (fill in the blank) with their mean spirited, drastic cuts.]

.... “The [2011] Budget Control Act sets a spending cap of $967 billion for fiscal year 2014. If Democrats boost funding levels in the stop-gap spending measure, sequestration will require a bigger automatic cut after New Year’s Day to keep below the BCA cap.

The stopgap spending measure passed by the House covers October, November and half of December. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

Increasing funding levels for the start of the fiscal year could serve as a precedent for mitigating the automatic cuts looming for the rest of the fiscal year after January. Democrats could argue the cuts needed to bring the total year’s spending back down to $967 billion would be too drastic.

Senate Democratic sources say Reid could increase the funding level in the House-passed resolution by using the same floor procedure he’s expected to use to remove language defunding ObamaCare.”.....

As Ronald Reagan once said, "if they will not see the light let them feel the heat."
