    We never have problems with Government shutdowns when Dems control the House

    So you're in favor of a shutdown?

    I don't think someone as dumb as an actual cat knows what's a load of crap and what isn't. Taa-taa.

    Which means that the minority recognized that the people spoke and they should follow the lead of the majority to avoid a shutdown.

    Whish the minority this time around was as responsible.

    Thanks for not being partisan and pointing that out to us.

    We can't afford not to have a shutdown, if that is the only means by which the Dems can be brought to the table to stem the bleeding.

    What they are really afraid of is how few non-government people will actually be affected by the shutdown. The Party of Big Government mostly exists to perpetuate and serve Big Government.

    No, but because of a Democrat controlled house, we gotta shut down the Government. Y'all spent all our money, ya bastards.

    Counterpoint Moment!

    If we shut down the Grand Canyon National Park, who will visit all the whore houses in southern Nevada?

    Total Net Debt in the United States is closer to $55.0 tril, of which $14.0 tril. is barely 25% and $1.5 tril. per year is not even 3% of Total Net Debt.

    The $14.0 tril. is the total. The $1.5 tril. is the annual increase.

    A bil. here, and a bil. there, is mostly a spot of tea over nothing.
