Republicans now worried they will lose the house in 2014
GOP Worries They Could Lose House
"There's growing angst among Republicans that the party's House majority could be at risk in 2014 if the deep GOP divisions that emerged during the recent 'fiscal cliff' negotiations persist in looming negotiations over a slew of budgetary issues," The Hill reports.
"Even as Republican officials maintain the GOP majority is safe, several lawmakers and longtime activists warn of far-reaching political ramifications if voters perceive Republicans as botching consequential talks on the debt ceiling, sequestration and a possible government shutdown."
The United States is in extremely deep trouble, but the Republican Party is not the solution to any of the problems. Until the country suffers a great deal of hardship due to the policies of the last twelve years there will be no change. At some point a right-of-center party will need to emerge that can actually articulate rational solutions that average people can understand. Until then, average people will be manipulated by demigogs drunk on their own power.
