Oh, here's the next great idea from the Republicans who aren't able to pass a "clean" continuing resolution and keep government and all its many parts moving at once.

No. They need to cut the government up into small easily digestible bites that they can swallow and digest,  one itty bitty piece at a time.

They think they might be up to allowing National Parks to remain open without upsetting their tummies and violating their ideologically driven shutdown. If we cut off a budget piece called  "National Parks" and buzz it around their little heads in a spoon -

"Look! It's the National Parks! Yellowstone! The Statue of Liberty! The WWII Veterans Memorial! They don't have anything to do with that nasty Obamacare - they're Nummy Nummy! You can open your mouths and eat this bit and it won't be bitter at all! There! All gone. Good Republicans! You funded something and it didn't violate your love of the Constitution or Freedom or the 2nd Amendment or your commitment to heterosexual marriage or provide contraception or anything! Yea! Republicans!"

And there you go - one piece of the Federal budget and only umpteen thousand to go in the GOP's fantastic new proposed procedure which is essentially a line item veto budget  for toddler Republicans who just can't eat a full plate of adult food.

Obama Would Veto House Republicans Partial Government Funding Bills

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.
