We Can Do Better
On Friday, the House passed and then the Senate defeated Speaker Boehner’s plan to increase the debt ceiling. On The Hill’s Congress Blog, Heritage Action’s CEO Michael Needham offered the following:
We have seen the conservative movement, which had been unified in enthusiastically supporting the Ryan budget and Cut, Cap and Balance Act, splinter as some good conservatives support the Boehner plan and others oppose it. We have seen members of Congress attack each other and their staffs. We have seen aggressive whip tactics on the House floor, which bring back memories of the DeLay Congress which lost the trust of the conservative grassroots.
All for what?
