GOP wants to employ “Delay & Pray” after Sen Cruz fillibuster
Wanted to throw a theory I have out to all of you……..
So after pondering the aftermath of the Sen Cruz filibuster I think I now see what all those who disagreed with the “strategy”‘ of what Cruz did are proposing. I call it the “Delay & Pray” strategy.
They want to DELAY Obamacare up to a year while funding it (which oddly enough is one of the criticisms we ALL have of POTUS in regards to ALL the waivers he is giving out) so that this it’s implementation is NOT a pressing issue in 2014 election. Yet PRAY that somehow the GOP election apparatus (ORCA anyone?) will be able to formulate a national strategy to get more like minded people elected to overturn the law which they STILL would not be able to do until 2017 at the earliest.
Oh and the national media wont be able to blame the GOP for a government shutdown.
This is what Boehner, Cantor, McConnell and Cornyn think is a path to victory. This is a “better” strategy than having the fight right now. Give POTUS what he wants ( and is giving through waivers right now anyway ) and hope we can communicate more effectively next year during a election.
Do you agree or am I off base?
