My fear is that they will be successful. The leadership in the House, Mr. Boehner, can marshall his forces and submit a budget that is approved by the folks in the Tea Party and other Republican kooks. They know it won't be approved in the Senate or by Obama. This will allow them to continue on their past course of fiscal irresponsibility because when voters complain they can point the finger at Democrats. In the last election I had fun pointing out to voters specific cases in which they were going to be harmed by plans put forth by Republican/Tea Party candidates. Many were stunned. The "deer in the headlights" look is priceless.
