Les Leopold, Huffington Post 4. The Ayn Rand Republicans control the debate:
Once the president accepted the Republican terms of debate, the Ayn Rand wing -- the taker-maker gang who see working people and the poor as moochers -- realized they had no need to compromise. The more they held out, the more liberals had to come their way. This was their golden moment to destroy as much of government as they could because in their playbook, government by definition is evil. Facts don't matter in this discussion. It's all about faith, values and conviction.
