    You will need to persuade House Republicans to pass it. They won't, not without taking hostages. And they don't care about public opinion. They care about gerrymandering and taking back the Senate.

    And fucking up the economy. Because they want Obama to fail at ALL COSTS. ALL COSTS. And they have the means to make that happen, they way they have done from day one: Sit on their hands.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

      Republicans had the power to destroy the economy in March. Now they lost it until May.  And maybe some people in Congress will miss some paychecks.

      If the House doesn't care about public opinion, why are they trying to feed memes of Obama as a spendthrift?

        .....in targeted districts they think they can take. They don't care what you think in San Francisco, New York or Austin.

        If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.
