I think he's right. The politics have played out such that the Republicans look like the ones who are holding out and being uncompromising. It doesn't help them either that with a Democrat in the White House, and the GOP in control of the House, the whole situation immediately resembles the shut down during Clinton's time. People are likely to draw immediate comparisons, including where to lay the blame.
Sounds like the House is on a path of self destruction.
Funny, how none of the right wingers on the board here want to talk about this. I guess they can't escape the tides.
Of course. It's in the Democrats best interest to shut down the government. We have a major fiscal crises and the Democrats will not let this go to waste. They seem to have a problem with budgets, yet the Republicans will be blamed for this. Go figure.
You just gotta love partisan hacks like Boehner controlling our country.....
As they should. The Tea Baggers are orchestrating this and Boehner is too afraid of them to steer a different course. There are enough votes in the House to pass a compromise budget with $33 billion in tax cuts. But that's not good enough for Boehner. He wants a budget that all GOP reps will vote aye. That is insane considering the GOP reps in the house.
I hope they stay closed until 100s of billions are on the chopping block. Otherwise, screw em, stay the hell on vacation.
Because what our economy needs is even more unemployment, right?
This should strike anyone as a glaring problem ie govt employment numbers but probably
not to the ones that worship at the alter of big government.
Do you seriously believe that these govt employees will do without? Hell no they won't. I have two friends from my former employer, DOI, text me a few minutes ago cheering about their upcoming vacation.
Again, hundreds of billions need to be cut on a yearly basis in the form of entitlements and defense.
