Comment: I thought this was great.

(See in situ)

I thought this was great.

People are listening to Rand.

But I think he missed a golden opportunity.

He should have floated a new compromise.

He should have floated ...

If Obama wants Obamacare maybe we could take it out of the Defense Budget.

That would have shook things up a bit.

If the ultimate issue is debt, then this is a perfectly reasonable compromise.

He isn't going to vote for anything with Obamacare in it, but it changes the subject and the media would eat that idea up and it would change the conversation.
