2. Repugs are Sgt. Schultz and see or hear nothing until the get their tax cuts.

At that point, they might turn against him, but definitely never until then.

In case you're not old and don't watch re-runs from the 70's, I'm referring to a character in Hogans Heroes whose signature line was "I see nothing".

4. "I'm a constitutional conservative"
