  •  Dems need to tie this to the shutdowns (8+ / 0-)

    Both the one we just had and the one we're about to have.

    The Republicans are pushing for another shutdown for the same reason they're blocking appointments:  Because they hate, hate, hate the Democrats and will do anything to stop them.  Period.

    The shutdowns are a very visible example of GOP governing malfeasance.  Let's make sure everyone sees that they are part of the GOP continuum of malfeasance.

    •  PW - there won't be another one (0+ / 0-)

      The GOP went from being down 8 points in the CNN 2014 generic House ballot, just after the shutdown, to being up 2% in the same poll a month later, a 10 point swing. There will be no more shutdowns prior to the midterms. The GOP thinks they have the momentum because of the rocky start of the ACA rollout and they don't want to change that.
