Yes or no and what do you believe the ramifications would be? And I don't mean lost elections. Individual political seats are not more important than the health (not medical) of our nation as a whole. The dems screamed the sky was falling when the thought of sequester wasmentioned. Reality showed different. Im sick of the gop being forced to "go along" just to keep the gun away from their heads. This is a bipartisan mess overall and im sick of the dems getting a free pass. If the govt shuts down it will be because BOTH sides refused to compromise. BOTH Congress is there to fulfill the will of the people not FUCKING KING OBAMA. I say fuck these stupid games and play hardball. Sadly I don't think Boehner has the spine required to do what's right.
