Look, the time to go along and get along is over," said Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.), the chairman of the House Republican Conference. "House Republicans know that. We’ve taken firm and principled stands against their big government plans throughout this Congress, and we’ve got, if the American people will send them, we’ve got a cavalry of men and women headed to Washington, D.C. that are going to stand with us."It is nice to know that even if Sen. McConnell doesn’t get it, and he obviously doesn’t, that Rep. Pence understands what he is in Washington to do. The idea that candidates can claim to uphold Conservative values on the campaign trail and then throw their constituents under the bus once elected is no longer viable.
Pence said his party wouldn't compromise on issues like spending or healthcare reform, two of the weightiest items on Congress's agenda next year, when the Republicans could control one or both chambers.
"Look, there will be no compromise on stopping runaway spending, deficits and debt. There will be no compromise on repealing Obamacare. There will be no compromise on stopping Democrats from growing government and raising taxes," Pence told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Thursday evening. "And if I haven’t been clear enough yet, let me say again: No compromise."
Of course we can’t compromise on ObamaCare. What could possibly be the “middle ground” on an un-Constitutional government takeover of one-sixth of our economy? Instead we need congressmen who will vote to repeal the law. If Obama brings out his veto pen, so be it. Obama may hold the pen but Congress holds the purse.
Pence understands the importance of tackling a problem from a position of strength. In less than two weeks we will have the opportunity to send him some reinforcement.
