Here are the results of our Will They, or Wont They? Poll. Politics Plus Polls are not scientific, because those who respond are not balanced according to demographic categories. Therefore, we do not accurately reflect the makeup of the US population. Nevertheless, our polls are often accurate.
And here are your comments.

I think some will try, but I hope there will be enough concerned about keeping their jobs to stop it.

Teddie and his sock puppets will try but the ones who have not yet drank the tea will stop them.

Sadly some will try I believe…

I hope they do try. The closer to the mid-term they try, the better our short-attention-span voters will remember it.

Some will try but will not succeed. Rand Paul is the same as is Father(just keeps talking air) Rubio needs another glass of water. Ted Cruz is not even a US citizen
so he do anything. He has nothing to lose but himself.

Agree Yvonne! It didn't work in the 90's; it didn't work in 2011; and it didn't work in 2013, the outcome for them being even worse.

Some will try. Cruz, Paul, and Rubio in particular want to make names for themselves in anticipation of the 2016 Presidential race. They will probably all pull some stunt to try to default on the National Debt in February.

I vacillated between 'yes' and 'some will try' finally settling on 'yes'. Reasons:
1) Teabaggers are alive and well still living in the Congress;
2) Republican/Teabaggers have tried to repeal Obamacare 42 times proving that they are as persistent as mold blight;
3) I think some Republican/Teabaggers think they won this past little set to.
I can also say that I don't think the Republican/Teabaggers will negotiate in good faith. They are ideologues that can only see their own view. They care nothing for the national interests.
I voted Some will try. The regulars like Batshit and Go-G0 Goose-step will be calling for it, but their last seditious fiasco, clobbered the Republican brand to a major extent. I don’t think the leadership will be so willing to follow the crazies over the same cliff so soon. Only time will tell, of course.
There is a new poll, so please vote.
