    Looks like Boehner is having a little trouble leading. Some GOP reps aren't too keen on paying for disaster relief funds through cuts to a fuel-efficiency loan program.

    I hope they threaten a shut down every single time the government attempts to spend even 1 more penny. Until we get the Deficit under control, and deal with the GOA report that found 300 Billion in wasteful, Redundant Federal Spending.

    If we just keep passing budgets with our dealing with the GOA report, were knowingly Funding those Wasteful and Redundant Programs year again, when we should be dealing with them before we waste another damn cent on them.

    Hell this sounds like an excellent jobs plan!!! Shut the F-ing federal government down. SHUT IT OR CUT IT!!!!!!!

    But if the federal government is shut down who will harass non-unionized businesses and enforce economy stifling EPA regulations?

    I hope so too. It worked out so well for Newt, I'm sure Americans, having become more engaged in politics, will simply love the multiple threats of gov't shutdowns that the GOTea have offered in lieu of any feasible plan to fix the economy and put people back to work. I mean, it's not like they ran on jobs in 2010....right? :lol::lol::lol: Good luck in 2012.
