The argument that we should go along with Obama and the progressives to prove they are wrong

While many of us are still undecided about this strategy I have been thinking about how it could be accomplished.

First let us recognize this means the Republicans in the House and Senate would need to vote against their own beliefs. But they would be doing this to accelerate the Obama experiment. Because the sooner it is proven to fail (as it has so far), the sooner we can start considering other solutions. Republicans could also state that this applies to economic recovery issues only. A budget bill with funding for abortion (for example) would be rejected off-hand. This would not be a carte blanche for all liberal legislation..

Here is how we might accomplish this.

The Republican leadership in congress would notify the president that if he sends them what he wants in tax changes, and budget items etc, the GOP will pass them.

But they would pass each bill with the caveat that a Declaration of Protest would be included in the text of the bill. This declaration would identify the items that the GOP opposes, why they oppose them, and what the expected adverse consequences might be. The declaration would also state that Republicans are passing these items in order to accelerate the process of proving that the president’s approach is completely wrong.

This is seriously radical stuff.  But at a time when good patriots are flying the American flag upside down, perhaps our congress needs to take such drastic action.
