      Your sense of humanity is really underwhelming.

      This isn't a football game or an academic debate.  Real lives of real people are at stake here.

        that is being shut down.  To pick one and screw other parts over isn't fair or right. I know the military is a sacred cow, but they're taking hits too in the sequester.  If we do this by piece meal, the GOP will simply impose an even tougher sequester on domestic priorities.

        •  since nobody said anything about doing anything (0+ / 0-)

          "piecemeal" or "picking one and screwing others over", I can only assume you've mistakenly responded to someone else instead of me.

          But perhaps you'd care to volunteer YOUR pay to some furloughed government employee (of the department of your choice) so you can share the pain and help defeat the GOP . . .?
