Republicans shouldn't introduce any new legislation. They should just vote for Democratic legislation and watch the economy crater.

I disagree; they should introduce new legislation, and watch it die to Democrat obstructionism.

And they should not vote FOR Democrat legislation; they should vote "Present".

(What happens in the House if the vote is say 200 votes "for" and 235 votes "present"?)

I don't quite understand how that works, but if they can just vote "Present" and let the Democrats vote it into law, that would be preferable. The key is to not stand in the way of Democrats destroying the economy.
