Rep. Huelskamp

"Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) continue to be hamstrung by a few dozen conservatives in their party, who seem to reflexively oppose their leadership at every turn. If you ask some of those lawmakers how they plan to force Democrats to defund the health care law, they have an answer. 

"We have sent a number of things to the Senate that are consistent with what the president’s already did,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), speaking of delays to Obamacare. 

"What we’re doing here is extending what he gave to big businesses and extending that to the  rest of the individual mandate."

Ok, then why don't you leave it to Commander-in-chief to decide about rest of the concessions? Why are you jumping ahead Rep. Huelskamp? Rep. Huelskamp you did not get 5 million votes more than Romney all over America. (By the way, he is the same guy who counted how many House member votes he would get to challenge Speaker Boehner. Of course, I find it hard to imagine how Speaker Boehner is going to retain his post no matter what happens. If USA Defaults - and it will if GOP does not change since for President Obama to agree to GOP about Default is same as not just resigning his own Presidency but nullifying future presidencies too - Boehner will go. If it does not Default, members like Huelskamp will make his life miserable. May be an honorable thing for Speaker Boehner to do is pass Default avoiding bill on the backs of Democrats and declare his readiness for retirement simultaneously.)

Well, there is no rational discourse possible with these people when they think to pull down America is all Kosher. Even respected analysts forget the line between 'political activism' and 'damage to common public good'.

But then, this shall pass too. Only now after full 11 months or so Republican Party is coming to terms with Romney and Senate loss of November 2012. But few in Republican Party will finally come to senses to understand what games Sen. Ted Cruz and DeMint are after. American needs to be patient here while these 'slow learners' (Tea Party) get up to speed.
