Anybody know what Cruz wants in order for him to declare victory and abandon the fight?
He’s been pretty clear: He wants the House to defund Obamacare.
“Hes been pretty clear: He wants the House to defund Obamacare.”
What I thought. But I disagree with refusing to raise the debt ceiling unless Obamacare is defunded. Why?
Because first, the consequences of not raising the debt ceiling could be a real blow to the economy. Obamacare is a terrible idea, but the people haven’t fully realized it yet, because it is just now going into effect. In a year or two, people will know all too well what a disaster it is, and we can repeal it, and the Dems will be buried as the party that brought the disaster called Obamacare. But if we don’t raise the debt ceiling, and there is an economic disaster, people are going to forget about Obamacare and could well blame the economic disaster on the Tea Party. This could lead to a solid congressional majority for the Dems in 2014 and give Obama everything he wants.
