Ending Spending

James Pethokoukis of Reuters identifies one priority for conservatives next year:
The failure to pass a 2011 budget is also tremendously positive [for conservatives]. It shows the impact of the Tea Party movement has not waned since the November midterms. This creates a situation next year where the flood of new Tea Party Republicans can combine a threat of government shutdown with a refusal to raise the national debt ceiling so as to squeeze spending cuts out of Obama and congressional Democrats.
It will be a closely fought battle. Tea Partiers have to prepare to provide support to conservatives on Capitol Hill.
