Dear House GOP,
You should stick to your guns in your showdown with President Obama.
Do not compromise. Do not delay the big fight for another day. Do not compromise and then come back two weeks later and start the fight anew over the national debt. Do not compromise and then come back in 12 months just before the election and turn the need for governing into election bulletpoints for the base — either your base or anyone else’s supporter base.
Just do it.
It will cause some pain. Probably some good will come out of it too.
Most importantly of all, you and WE need to get on with life. To move beyond the irrational. So just do it. We will all happily remember this episode in 2014 and vote for those that we believe were right … or less wrong.
