Don't give Harry Reid time

Working with the assumption that at some point very soon the Boehner plan will pass (the typical DC outcome of these things…), House Republicans would be most inept if they passed it today.  If I were the last few Republicans to give in to the arguments of the Speaker, I would hold out until around 5:00pm on Monday, August 1st. 

Don’t give Harry Reid (or the President) any time.  Passing the bill on Friday or Saturday or Sunday gives the Senate time to react and throw an even worse hot potato back into Boehner’s lap when time expires.   

Don’t enable bad actors.  Don’t give in until Monday evening.
