  •  Remember, ALL House Rs are to blame. (0+ / 0-)

    There are a few Republicans who would like you to think they're opposed to the shutdown.  Don't believe it.  

    Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5:

    The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
    Nothing there about beginning of a session, nothing there about parties.  If the Democrats, and a few Republicans (18, IIRC), wanted to elect a Speaker who would flush the damned Hastert rule, there is nothing in the Constitution to stop that.  Can't get 18?  As far as I'm concerned, that makes every R in the House completely to blame for the shutdown.
