Republicans shut the government down last week, and they’re prepared to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States next week. They freely admit they’re prepared to impose self-inflicted wounds on Americans, on purpose, unless their demands are met.
And what are those demands? Even now, after months of planning and fiascos of their own making, the party’s own leaders and members haven’t the foggiest idea.
Ultimately, it’s not about Obamacare or debt limits or government spending or entitlement programs. It’s about destroying the presidency of Barack Obama which is why nothing short of the impeachment of this president will appease these people.
One more thing we can count on is that republicans will always have Medicare and Medicaid as part of the ransom note! Social Security too, but they’ll do that one less openly, hoping no one notices.
