Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) insisted today that the Republicans are not going to back down in the shutdown/debt limit impasse. According to Roll Call:
Gingrey said Republicans were “absolutely” prepared to lose the House to extract concessions on the CR and the debt limit, and he said the White House is “missing the determination of the Republican Party.”

“I mean, they seem to think that we will miss this opportunity for a ‘Braveheart’ moment to do the right thing for the American people and that we’ll back down for fear of losing the House and not gaining control of the Senate,” Gingrey said.
I haven't seen Braveheart in a long time but ... isn't Scotland still part of the U.K.? Also, Wallace gets tortured and beheaded in that one, right? The thing about martyrs is they're all dead.

If I'm in the Republican Conference, I'm hoping for a Plan B.
