Two weeks ago, the organizer of a long-shot campaign to freeze the federal government’s debt limit was not optimistic about his chances to create the biggest political earthquake to hit the nation’s Capitol since Ronald Reagan’s election as president.
Today, he’s jubilant about what he sees as a political “tidal shift” within the House Republican majority.
“The latest poll from Investors Business Daily shows 70 percent of Americans opposed to raising the debt limit,” says Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND and the organizer of a campaign to persuade House Republicans to block legislation to authorize more federal borrowing and spending. “Among Republicans, it’s 86 percent opposed. Among Democrats, it’s 55 percent.”
And that’s just the beginning, says Farah.
