I read this article this morning on lucianne.  2 things popped out at me at the time:

1.  The guy's age
2.  THIS guy's the reason the Republicans didn't cave 5 minutes after the shutdown began!

At some point, doesn't there have to be a compromise? That's the way the system works, after all. Yes, Mr. Needham agrees, "at some point in this fight somebody has to blink." His mission, he says, is to persuade "the House not to blink first."

To paraphrase Calvin Coolidge:  "You lose."

Yep. Also note how many lobbyists are lined up fighting against "we the people."  Greta really drove that home on her show Friday.  I still think she is hands-down the best interviewer on TV today.

This guy has lost.  Obamacare is going to be neither defunded nor delayed.

Agree wholeheartedly.  She is incredibly skilled in that regard.

On Friday she came out and asked either a senator or congressman she was interviewing (forget who it was) in regards to the lobbyists on the hill pushing gutting the Medical Device Tax our of Obamacare - WHO is there lobbying for for the American Taxpayers?  She got crickets.
