That's Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) admitting that there are "enough votes in the Republican party who are willing" to give up on this suicide mission to kill Obamacare and pass the clean continuing resolution that the Senate will send to them tomorrow, thereby avoiding a government shutdown.

Labrador also admits that shutting down the government "is a loser for us." But still, a shutdown will be President Obama's and Harry Reid's fault, he says. They know what a disaster a shutdown would be for the Republicans, so they're the ones making the Republicans shut down government. So we're back to the "Ma, he's making me hit myself" stage of governing with these guys.

Join Daily Kos and the DCCC and tell John Boehner: It’s time to cut the Tea Party loose and work with Democrats to keep the government funded and avoid a disastrous default.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
