They should just stop where they are.  They keep retreating while the Dems just stand still and do nothing.  The line should be drawn where it is.  One year full delay, including funding.  Shut it down and go take a vacation and don't listen to any media, is my advice.  Just read your mail, congressmen.  That'll tell you what the people are thinking.

No they're not.  On the contrary, if they cave on the CR, they have all the leverage on the debt ceiling fight.  That's where this should have been fought to begin with. The GOP can say they gave in and were reasonable and now it's Obama's turn to give up something.

Obama came up with the sequester cuts in 2011 in the last debt ceiling standoff and he'd have to come up with something here too, as failure to raise the debt ceiling damages him a lot more.  And he knows it.

B.S.  If history demonstrates anything, it's that republicans get absolutely no respect when they try to act the adults in Congress and compromise on this or that with the democrats.  The republicans have played Neville Chamberlain - or Charlie Brown - to the democrats for too long.
