    The House Republicans are voted into office essentially by their base and are free to ignore everybody else. Their base doesn't believe that they receive any kind of services from the federal government and, as such, don't care about the sequestration. They're convinced they're "independent" "up by their bootstraps" businesspeople and that the feds only get in their way.

    It'll take a lesson like losing essential federal services due to sequestration -- like "your small business loan application will now take 18 months" or "the program helping your child at school has been defunded" or "that bridge that was supposed to be repaired this year has been put off until 2019" or "your Defense Department customers no longer have enough money to buy your stuff" or "the levees protecting your town will not be upgraded before the storm season", etc. -- for them to actually realize they rely upon the federal government in a multitude of ways.

    Reality can be shocking... and educating.

    •  But their base will still blame the Dems... (0+ / 0-)

      ...when that happens. They're not reality-based; they're Fox-based.

      The scene on November 6, midnight: Barack Obama holds up newspaper reading "Romney defeats Obama" as he heads to give his second term acceptance speech.
