Words as the Weapon of Righteousness
Republican leadership has announced that the vote on their immoral budget cuts has been indefinitely postponed. The reason is simple: this budget and the Republican Party do not represent the priorities of the American people, and Democrats have made that clear. Because of that, Republicans simply do not have the votes. The Republican budget was about increasing the deficit, cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans at the expense of the middle-class, and hurting those who need our help most – hurricane survivors, seniors, students, and rural Americans. Democrats were united and made those issues too hot to handle for Republicans.That's the way to fight the good fight: turn the Republicans' supposed strength (morality) against them, and define ourselves in positive terms ("Democrats were united") instead of letting others define us.
