Hey Republicans - READ UP, if you want to save your job, don't.
If you continue to obstruct and refuse to sign Tim Walz's discharge petition to vote on the tax cuts for the middle class, then by all means, continue doing what you usually do.
BUT with recorded votes, it will be a very easy campaign for any Democrats seeking to oust the Republicans after the voters sees that they have to pay more - and guess whose fault would it be - hint - it's not Obama - it's the House. And who controls the House? That's right, the REPUBLICANS.
Because of redistricting, the Republicans barely managed to hold on to their House majority, but there are preparations underway to motivate every single legitimate voters to remove Republicans for good - and many Republicans are still ENDANGERED and will be easily ousted in 2014. Voters have long memories, and with voter education for each vulnerable districts, many Republicans will be forced to spend major cash and appearances (hint, it has to be in public, not in a closed location full of fat cats) to their own districts. Then in 2016, it'll be shored up with even stronger Democrats as the statehouses are taken over and secured for the Democrats in time for the 2020 census, and the lines will be redrawn CORRECTLY to adjust for everyone, even the Republicans. The gerrymandering may work for one term, but ultimately, it will fail because many minorities continue to grow and live in the districts.
