    Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), chairman of the Democratic Policy Committee, said Tuesday the Senate would block any House-passed spending measure that included major policy riders.


    Schumer said if House conservatives manage to defeat the pending bill, which does not include policy riders, a government shutdown would become more likely.

    “I hope and pray that there are enough votes to pass it in the House and I hope these folks with a conservative, ideological agenda don’t try to bring down the government,” he said.

    Perhaps someone should remind him of this quote:

    "Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won."
    Obama, 2009

    Being "riders" tends to make me believe that they couldn't stand on their own.

    One of the riders is the stoppage of the EPA protecting drinking water. It costs too much to protect Americans safe water.
    BUT damn it, let's continue giving corporate welfare to already highly profitable energy companies! We have the money for that!!!!
