The Tea Party has Republicans by their inner deficit hawk. Because they sure didn’t have any problems with adding to the deficit under George W. Bush, when not even the war funding was in the budget.

Will Republicans say no to the states, too? What will they do?

Republicans have no solutions. All they can say is no.
