How 30 House Republicans Took Control of Their Caucus

Byron York: "In the continuing resolution fight, it is the 30 most committed members, along with their 20-30 allies in the next-most-committed group, who are setting the House Republican agenda. The ones pushing for a fight over Obamacare, even if it leads to a shutdown, are controlling what the House does."

"Which has led to the question: How can 30 Republicans beat 200 Republicans? How does that work?"

"There are two answers. One, the Republican majority in the House is fairly narrow. And two, Democrats have been extraordinarily unified in opposing GOP proposals."
