    I'm baffled at how people can't grasp this.

    It's the job of the HOUSE to pass a budget. That includes GOP and Dem members of the House. Thats the consequence of losing the House, which the Dem's did.

    So, the JOB of the House is to propose a budget. They did that.

    The gov't ONLY shuts down if the DEMOCRAT Senate and White House don't pass it. It's on their lap. If the gov't shuts down, its because the Dem's allowed it to. But the GOP House did it's job and proposed a budget (BTW, it's a 2011 budget that the DEM HOUSE was supposed to pass in 2010 but never did).

    So if the Dem's don't like the GOP House budget, guess what? They should've passed it in 2010 LIKE THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO when the House was theirs, as it's the job of the House to do budget.

    Dems didn't do that. They waited. GOP took the House. Now the House does budget. House proposed it. Only Dems can allow the gov't to shutdown.

    Amazing how nobody seems to care.

    Its the job of the MSM's job to tow the line for the Dems and their liberal agenda. So they are going to frame it the way they want. Which is to blame the Repubes.
    If the Dems did their job when it was constitutionally required (make and submit a budget every year) we wouldnt be here in the first place.

    Great post Buc :clap2:

    Dems are very very good at portraying perception and tapping into your emotional thoughts.

    No.

    What I am saying is that if they DON'T accept it, then THAT is why the government shut down. NOT because the GOP House didn't do it's job. If the gov't shuts down, it's because the Dems did so.

    Don't like what the GOP House proposed? Don't lose the house in 2010. But they did. The Dem's forced Obamacare, now they suffer the blowback.

    But we must be sure we know the reality of the situation.
