Does anyone really have any rational basis for trusting that

the GOP wouldn't cave?

Of COURSE they will cave.

They aren't a real opposition party.

They don't STAND for anything in the end other than their own fortunes and power.

This is all a charade because elections are coming up next year.

It's a way for the Pols to jockey for position to make appearances that you need to vote for THEM (with the "R") rather than WASTE your vote on a "3rd party" candidate so they can be sent back to Congress to "stop" Obama and the Dems.

Of course, they won't do anything different next time. They'll just make noise, and CAVE all over again, and in the end, we'll all be worse off than if they had done absolutely nothing.

I seriously question the mental health of anyone who trusts the Republicans or the Democrats to do ANYTHING that is not in their own self interest personally.
