Look at various polls of what people actually want.

The voters are counting on the Republicans to stop the Dems from doing all they do not like and they are going to blame the Republicans if they fail to do so

The voters are counting on the Dems to give stuff away, and will give them credit for doing it

The only sane move that elected Republicans can do right now, is indeed walk away. But not stop anything while doing so.

Keep saying what you want to do, keep passing bills on what you want to do -- but do not stop Dems from introducing stuff and do not vote it down -- just abstain
I'm beginning to think this would be the wisest course of action, because i completely agree, the republicans will be blamed.....but when things go wrong, and they will, i think the republicans will be blamed then too, even if they vote present, how?, i have no idea, but the reasons they're being blamed now make no sense either.
