Lame Duck Session of Congress II - #2714 - The Sequel - Redstate

A lot can happen between now and November, 2012. But let me make a prediction: The next month will either set Barack Obama on a “glide path” toward electoral victory -– or a glide path toward electoral defeat. The Obama-generated narrative is that the next 30 days will be spent trying to come up with a “magic number” (between $10 billion and $61 billion) of Obama-approved spending cuts which are acceptable to both Republicans and the White House. Among other things, this negotiated plan would fund ObamaCare. If this narrative unfolds the way Obama is planning, it will create a political dynamic comparable to the GOP’s botched handling of the lame duck session:

In less than three weeks in December, Barack Obama was transformed from a has-been to a 2012 frontrunner. Obama paid off restive Democrat constituencies: same-sex couples, foreign policy doves, environmentalists, unions, and New York’s two recently reelected liberal senators.  Obama was perceived as a leader who had embraced both bipartisanship and tax cuts. Last sentence - So the bottom line is this: Let Barack Obama shut down the government for the sole reason of preserving ObamaCare’s bureaucracy and mandates. Does anyone think that’s a battle which the GOP would not win? Read entire article........  In view of the big vote next Wednesday on the continuing resolution, if a deal is reached and the hidden funding is not a factor or has not been removed, this is the last chance to Defund Health care.
