Boehner Commits House GOP To A Plan To Balance The Budget In 10 Years. And The GOP Death Spiral
This is a huge conundrum….spending cuts aren’t popular. We need to accept that no matter what polls say. But to get its voice back the GOP needs to double down on unpopular things. If every loss leads to doubling down we’re in a death spiral (much like the one the country is in) that will likely lead to more Democrats winning and increased spending and more doubling down…….
I’m not hitting the GOP for this, it’s a no win situation. The problem is voters. We lost the argument about the size and scope of government. We aren’t going to win it through a new 10 year plan that will be unpopular and never go anywhere.
The fight we need to have is not one the GOP or any political party is designed to wage. We should stop demanding that they try.
This is why Let It Burn isn’t a pro-active course, it’s simply an acknowledgement of reality.
