Early this morning, I joined with 27 other Republicans in opposition to the continuing resolution brokered by President Obama and Congressional leaders. While millions of Americans expect Congress to make significant efforts to address our nation's fiscal problems, the deal that was made leaves us with a paltry $36 billion in cuts and fails to defund Obamacare and Planned Parenthood...
...This continuing resolution is a disappointment and ignores the mandate given to us by voters in November. Keeping in line with my promises, I will continue to oppose any continuing resolution or budget plan that does not defund Obamacare or make significant cuts in government spending, and I will not yield in this effort.
Good for you, Michele. We have your back.
Mark Levin asked the question last night (MP3): how in the hell are the Republicans going to stand up to the lunatic left on the issue of raising the debt ceiling -- or the 2012 Ryan budget -- if they can't even follow through on their promises to cut $100 billion from the current budget by shutting down part of the enormous federal government for a few days?
I have an adjective to describe these pathetic old bulls in the Republican Party: sackless.
And I have a message for them: we are going to overwhelm the legacy Republican Party with Constitutional conservatives (note: not "Tea Party extremists" like the Democrat caucus has instructed you to say) in 2012 and kick your asses out of the House leadership positions.
You act like back-benchers; therefore, you will be transformed into back-benchers.
And another thing: Michele Bachmann** has more guts in her left pinky than all of you have combined.
Update: Allen West for Speaker of the House, Michele Bachmann for President.
* As did a few hundred thousand other folks.
