RNC Declares Victory

In an email a blasted out to potential donors Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus hails the debt ceiling vote:

You didn’t just change the debate in Washington. You changed the results. Today’s passage of the Budget Control Act shows the impact you’ve already had… and how important it is to keep the pressure on Washington for the next 15 months.

The missive then lists positive attributes of the deal:

  • Stopped ALL of the tax increases Obama, Reid, and Pelosi demanded;
  • Forced the Senate to pass its first budget in two years, delivering Harry Reid a dose of accountability;
  •  Held every politician accountable to vote yes or no on a balanced budget amendment; and
  • Protected the economy while demonstrating a commitment to reducing the debt.

The solicitation also goes after Vice President Joe Biden for reportedly calling Tea Party activists “terrorists.” Priebus prefers the term “patriot.”

UPDATE: I should make clear that the message does stop short of asking for money. “Usually this is the part where we ask for money. Not today. In the last 24 hours you have given America something much more important than a donation. You have helped America take a step away from servitude and a step closer to freedom.”
