GOP House should follow lead of governors

Talk show host Michael Medved can’t believe the House GOP is recklessly charging into a battle to defund Obamacare that it is sure to lose. “The GOP shouldn’t pursue noble defeat while standing on principle,” he wrote in the Wall Street Journal. “You build momentum for a movement by achieving legislative victories, not by racking up high-profile losses.” The GOP’s only hope comes from bold conservative governors, Medved said, mentioning Gov. Sam Brownback in a list of examples. GOP governors “have no choice but to face up to the grubby, imperfect business of governance,” Medved said. “If only those in Congress would follow their lead.”
