    Remember back when they were complaining about White House tours!

    They are really putting their Grover Norquist Mission Statement to the test!

    My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size... - Grover Norquist at BrainyQuote

    The House passed several bills. The Senate rejected all of them. Looks like the Democrats own this shut down.

    Well no.

    The Bills were partially shutting down the government.

    Democrats want to keep it open.

    Come on man..man up.

    This is Grover Norquist stuff in action.

    This baby's going to the bathtub! :lol:

    The Democrats and Obama have been salivating over this, remembering how the public blamed the GOP back in 95. This isn't '95 though and the Dems will find themselves getting reamed.

    N, dumbshit. They fell into their own trap. The Dums think the GOP will suffer a big PR loss in this. But they didnt count on a bad economy and a public that already thinks the gov't is too big.

    Just like Romney was going to beat Obama, huh?

    :eusa_shifty:

    I'm betting this is going to cost them the House.

    And they can forget the Presidency in 2016.
