Here’s how and why it has to be done.

Moreover, all it would take on that vote is for just 16 House Republicans to abstain from voting for Boehner. The result would be a tie between Boehner and Pelosi. Gridlock. Let the House Republican Conference caucus and pick our new Moses.
New blood is needed as Senate Republican Minority Leader as well. Mitch McConnell is also a good man with a conservative record. He is supposed to be a wicked good parliamentarian. I haven’t seen anything come of that.
The problem is he has the personality and appearance of an undertaker. Alfred Hitchcock would be more compelling. While the Senate Minority Leader has to be one of the 45 remaining Senate Republicans, we have much better options there. How about Marco Rubio? How about Rand Paul? Senate Republicans can make history by choosing highly articulate freshman Ted Cruz. These gentlemen can talk, they have rock star personalities and demeanor. They are all in the ring to win the fight.
Thus newly led into battle, our new leaders can inform President Obama that his idea of granting him authority to raise the debt limit as he pleases is dead on arrival, and not to be discussed anymore. They can emphasize that last point to the Marxist infiltrator Washington press corps too, through the haze of the bong smoke any time those hippies in suits gather.
The House can then pass a bill making all of the Bush tax cuts permanent, and send everyone home subject to recall when the Senate acts. The new leaders then go on national tour to explain to a very retrogressive nation today that the next step according to the law books, as can be read in the civics books for those who can still read, is for the Democrat Senate to act on the House passed bill, and then for the differences to be ironed out in Conference. President Obama, we will call you when we are ready for you, to sign the bill that the Congress of the United States has passed.
