The government is currently shut down. They can’t agree on a way to fund the government for SIX WEEKS! That’s what all this wrangling and stupidity are all about – funding for six weeks.
Exactly what do the Republicans deserve for keeping the lights on for six more weeks? NOTHING. What do the Democrats deserve for keeping the lights on for six more weeks? NOTHING!
But in GOP-land, we should defund ObamaCare, or delay ObamaCare, or approve Keystone XL or something else in their policy binders – just to agree to fund the government for six weeks.
Tell me something, GOP. What have the Democrats gotten out of this? Answer – NOTHING. Actually, they took the GOP’s budget number of $988 billion - $70 billion less than they proposed. So the Democrats have given in on a GOP demand – and the GOP wants more? Why do they deserve more?
End the Tea Party Temper Tantrum.
Let the House Vote. NOW!
