That's Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) admitting that there are "enough votes in the Republican party who are willing" to give up on this suicide mission to kill Obamacare and pass the clean continuing resolution that the Senate will send to them tomorrow, thereby avoiding a government shutdown.

Labrador also admits that shutting down the government "is a loser for us." But still, a shutdown will be President Obama's and Harry Reid's fault, he says. They know what a disaster a shutdown would be for the Republicans, so they're the ones making the Republicans shut down government. So we're back to the "Ma, he's making me hit myself" stage of governing with these guys.

Join Daily Kos and the DCCC and tell John Boehner: It’s time to cut the Tea Party loose and work with Democrats to keep the government funded and avoid a disastrous default.
