I swear to God, you people have been given the greatest gift with this budget.
You have been handed a chance to make actual cuts. Do it. You have a mandate from the election, so use it.
Don’t apologize. When you have to comment, say “Not only do we have an problem with deficit spending, but we also have a massive debt load. Cuts are required, and they are required everywhere.”
Change Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Freddie and Fannie. Fix them. Accept no amendments that do not cut spending.
When the Senate attempts a change, every Republican needs to vote against it. Vote only for the budget the House passes. When the Senate manages to pass something different ANYWAYS, ignore it. Re-pass the House version, and send it back.
When Obama vetoes it, attempt to override. Then when that fails, pass it again. Keep sending it. Do not negotiate.
If the Government has to be shut down, flood the media with people reminding everyone that the Democrats caused this, that they are the reason we did not have a budget at the end of the last Congress. Say that because they were unwilling to do their jobs, you have to take drastic steps.
Keep on it. Never let up, do not deviate from that point – Democrats willfully, knowingly opted to abstain from passing a budget.
Hammer them on this.
And with God as my fucking witness, if any of you assholes propose or vote for a Continuing Resolution, I will personally raise an army to make sure you never make it past another primary again. You won’t even get elected to fucking dog-catcher.
