Dear Dems. Grow a f***ing sack and tell them that you simply won’t stand for a refusal to negotiate. If they don’t come to the table, go to every media outlet you can and repeat over and over and over and over that the Republicans refuse to negotiate and would rather destroy our nation’s fragile economic recovery than to compromise on anything. Don’t let up. Don’t change message.
And when they start getting the blame for the shut-down, and they will, they will negotiate. At that point, go to every media outlet you can and repeat over and over and over and over that you are happy that the Republicans have finally agreed to compromise. Damn them with faint praise. They will think twice about holding their breath and stamping their feet on crucial issues in the future.
Just as Obama has done, you now have the ability to stand up as the adults in the room. Don’t let the opportunity pass because you’re scared.

Can we just stop with the Social Conservative babble about the United States being a “Christian Nation”?
No “Christian Nation" would believe that Jesus would prefer that poor people get the proverbial axe to ensure that wealthy people don’t have to give up a few percentage points in taxes.
