    Why do we use that word?  Lets call it for what it is:  Blackmail.

    We want cuts that total $30 billion...

    Democrats:  Ok

    Republicans:  We want a pony

    Democrats:  But we gave you $30 billion?!?!

    Republicans:  Government Shutdown

    Democrats:  Ok

    Republicans:  Changed our mind now we want a Unicorn

    They'll just keep going until they see that they can't get what they want no matter what.
