The Budget Deal Was Our Success

With yesterday's budget deal between Speaker Boehner and President Obama set in stone, along with Senate Majority Leader Reid's guarantee of separate votes on defunding planned parenthood and ObamaCare, some Conservatives are actually calling yesterday's deal a stab-in-the-back by House Republicans.

I would beg to differ!

House Republicans in three months have accomplished more in spending cuts than ever before in Washington! Just two years ago the Party was declared all but officially dead, and now we have turned the Capital on its head by slashing the federal government by $50 billion.

Federal funding of abortion in the District of Columbia is once again prohibited, and defunding the President's signature achievement will be debated, and voted by the United States Senate. Something that was unrealistic only one month ago when we were sadly noting the one year anniversary of that monstrosity.

The grand City of Rome was not built in one day, and neither was the Mona Lisa perfected in one swift brushstroke. Both took careful planning and timing - why should we be any different in slaying the monster of deficits, and debt?

We shouldn't.

Rejoice in our early victory, but prepare for future fights.

P.S. - Ace of Spades also agrees that Republicans won yesterday.
