Change We Can Reave In

Republicans Break Filibuster Over Debt Ceiling – NYTimes.com

It also represented a public rebuke of the Tea Party wing by Republican Party elders in what has been a sometimes fierce intramural struggle.

Timesian spin.  Not a single Tea Party paladin voted for this atrocity in the Senate.  In fact, nearly three quarters of Senate Republicans (including two from the “leadership””) voted against McConnell, who is now, with this travesty, officially on political life support.

The problem at the moment is that the Tea Party, and those who fear it enough to submit to its dictates, only control about 3/4 of 1/2 of one branch.

We’re going to need to change that this fall, starting with the GOP “leadership,” especially Boehner and McConnell.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
