My 2013 Shutdown Plan is workable in 2015

Back in 2013 the last time the Gov­ern­ment was shut down I had a sug­ges­tion for the Repub­li­cans on how to win it

the essence of the solu­tion and com­pro­mise is not to empha­size dis­agree­ment but to advance where we agree and that is what we in the house intend to do

Today as part of the clos­ing of gov­ern­ment national parks are being closed, both democ­rats and repub­li­cans are in favor of want­ing American’s to enjoy them. We are send­ing Harry Reid a bill to fully fund the national park sys­tem and I invite the Democ­rats to pass it.

At this point the house passes the fund­ing for National Parks and the Sen­ate can either pass it or not pass it.

If the Sen­ate tables it, or votes it down: Dur­ing every sin­gle media appear­ance GOP mem­bers should ask why the Democ­rats are unwill­ing to fund national parks, some­thing all Amer­i­cans agree on, and let democ­rats explain why they can’t vote for that spend­ing. This should not change until the Sen­ate either votes for it, or agrees to a con­fer­ence committee

This plan was foiled because when Harry Reid ignored every sin­gle fund­ing the media failed to cover it and only Ted Cruz both­ered to push back against the Media’s silence on TV:

Sen Ted Cruz: But Candy, let me press back. It’s twice you’ve said Harry Reid would say it’s black­mail. And I want to press back, because I actu­ally — I think that’s a false claim with no basis. The bill that the House passed on the VA sim­ply funds the VA. It doesn’t men­tion any­thing about Oba­macare. It doesn’t men­tion any­thing about any­thing else. Now, for hun­dreds of years, the way Con­gress is appro­pri­ated has been one topic at a time. How is it black­mail to say we think we should fund the vet­er­ans? Do you agree? That’s a yes or no vote. Now Harry Reid refuses to let the Democ­rats vote on that. But how is it black­mail to say, we may not agree on every­thing but is there any­thing we can agree on? We ought to agree on

How­ever that was not enough so no bills ever got to the President’s desk and the GOP even­tu­ally caved and the media pre­dicted they would pay a huge price for the shut­down when instead we saw the 2nd Big Red Wave giv­ing the party the Sen­ate with sev­eral seats to spare.

So now it’s 2015, an elec­tion is com­ing up and things are dif­fer­ent because NOW Harry Reid can NOT block spend­ing bills sub­ject to reconciliation.

All the GOP has to do is wait till the MSM starts scream­ing about food stamps, or gov­ern­ment work­ers or any other thing the left cares about
As soon as they do the House can pass fund­ing for that piece, the sen­ate using rec­on­cil­i­a­tion can force a vote caus­ing Democ­rats in the sen­ate to choose between vot­ing for spend­ing for their con­stituents or not.

And Unlike 2013 these spend­ing bills can’t be stopped from get­ting to the President’s desk.

Let the pres­i­dent veto fund­ing for food stamps and unem­ploy­ment, let him veto vet­er­ans spend­ing and if he does wait a cou­ple of week and pass the spend­ing again and let him veto it again, and again and again until Obama vot­ers scream.

And every sin­gle time the media asks about it remind them that the con­gress has passed the fund­ing for X Y and Z and all the pres­i­dent has to do is sign it (or let it become law with­out his signature).

The Pieces are all in place for a GOP vic­tory, if they only have the guts to seize it

Update: My plan is a per­fect counter to this:

JUST LIKE LAST TIME, OBAMA WILL ABUSE HIS POWER TO MAX­I­MIZE THE PAIN ON ORDI­NARY AMER­I­CANS: If the gov­ern­ment shuts, don’t plan on vis­it­ing Yel­low­stone, financ­ing your home or get­ting your tax refund.

The GOP needs to make sure there is a bill on his desk to fund each of these things so that he can make the proac­tive deci­sion to veto them.

I know you can get the MSM for noth­ing, but that’s pretty much what they’re good for.

Back in 2013 the last time the Government was shut down I had a suggestion for the Republicans on how to win it

the essence of the solution and compromise is not to emphasize disagreement but to advance where we agree and that is what we in the house intend to do

Today as part of the closing of government national parks are being closed, both democrats and republicans are in favor of wanting American’s to enjoy them. We are sending Harry Reid a bill to fully fund the national park system and I invite the Democrats to pass it.

At this point the house passes the funding for National Parks and the Senate can either pass it or not pass it.

If the Senate tables it, or votes it down: During every single media appearance GOP members should ask why the Democrats are unwilling to fund national parks, something all Americans agree on, and let democrats explain why they can’t vote for that spending. This should not change until the Senate either votes for it, or agrees to a conference committee

This plan was foiled because when Harry Reid ignored every single funding the media failed to cover it and only Ted Cruz bothered to push back against the Media’s silence on TV:

Sen Ted Cruz: But Candy, let me press back. It’s twice you’ve said Harry Reid would say it’s blackmail. And I want to press back, because I actually — I think that’s a false claim with no basis. The bill that the House passed on the VA simply funds the VA. It doesn’t mention anything about Obamacare. It doesn’t mention anything about anything else. Now, for hundreds of years, the way Congress is appropriated has been one topic at a time. How is it blackmail to say we think we should fund the veterans? Do you agree? That’s a yes or no vote. Now Harry Reid refuses to let the Democrats vote on that. But how is it blackmail to say, we may not agree on everything but is there anything we can agree on? We ought to agree on

However that was not enough so no bills ever got to the President’s desk and the GOP eventually caved and the media predicted they would pay a huge price for the shutdown when instead we saw the 2nd Big Red Wave giving the party the Senate with several seats to spare.

So now it’s 2015, an election is coming up and things are different because NOW Harry Reid can NOT block spending bills subject to reconciliation.

All the GOP has to do is wait till the MSM starts screaming about food stamps, or government workers or any other thing the left cares about
As soon as they do the House can pass funding for that piece, the senate using reconciliation can force a vote causing Democrats in the senate to choose between voting for spending for their constituents or not.

And Unlike 2013 these spending bills can’t be stopped from getting to the President’s desk.

Let the president veto funding for food stamps and unemployment, let him veto veterans spending and if he does wait a couple of week and pass the spending again and let him veto it again, and again and again until Obama voters scream.

And every single time the media asks about it remind them that the congress has passed the funding for X Y and Z and all the president has to do is sign it (or let it become law without his signature).

The Pieces are all in place for a GOP victory, if they only have the guts to seize it

Update: My plan is a perfect counter to this:

JUST LIKE LAST TIME, OBAMA WILL ABUSE HIS POWER TO MAXIMIZE THE PAIN ON ORDINARY AMERICANS: If the government shuts, don’t plan on visiting Yellowstone, financing your home or getting your tax refund.

The GOP needs to make sure there is a bill on his desk to fund each of these things so that he can make the proactive decision to veto them.
