If you want to know where the GOP base is right now in the fight over Obamacare and the government shutdown. This quote from Iowa Congressman Steve King sums it up:
“Because we’re right, simply because we’re right. We can recover from a political squabble, but we can never recover from Obamacare.”
Polls that show Americans by a margin of 3-1 oppose shutting down the federal government to halt Obamacare’s implementation be damned. In King’s view the GOP is right and eventually everyone will release they are right. Boy won’t people who doubted King be sorry.
How do you think that political strategy is going to work? As discussed earlier it is not like any of the GOP 2016 contenders are going to stand up to this. Some of them, Ted Cruz, are leading the charge.
