Anatomy of a Government Shutdown
Of course a shutdown is possible because that's what the Republicans are threatening us with on national TV, Meet the Press or one of those dandies or whatever the show was. The Republican leader was asked, and I'm paraphrasing, 'is there going to be a government shutdown?' and he wouldn't respond to the question. So, this isn't Schumer or Reid or Hoyer. Of course it's a possibility. That's what we're trying to avoid."

President Obama warned of stopped Social Security checks and issued a formal veto threat Tuesday to the Republican spending plan currently being debated in the House, setting the stage for a potential government shutdown next month.

What is the bad news?
Go ahead, “make my day”!
and from star wars I when C3P0 says “Shut them down, shut them ALL down”
Who will surf porn all day?
Govt. Employee checks could stop though....
That’s my question too.
I’m in favor of it. How long do we have to keep it closed to wipe out the budget defecit?
Such as the people who you call to figure out why you aren't getting your SS or military retirement or military disability checks.
During the last “government shutdown”, the sitting president got all the blame. Let’s just make sure that happens again.
Scum sucking swine. He wants to destroy this country.
Now’s our chance to lock ‘em out!
We need to cut this budget dramatically even if it requires shutting down the govt.
To do so we need to get the American people on our side. That's where the pubbies failed last time.
Well, this time we need to WIN, and the dems need to LOSE, for the sake of our children and grandchildren. It's that important.
Start talking to the American people, Republicans!
Hey, maybe he gets it after all!
The bad new is that he’s going to blame it on Republicans, and the MSM is going to exploit it.
He’s not going to do anything to jeapordize his chance at re-election. Then again repubs will compromise before hand so this threat will never have a chance to be carried out.
Reply to Obama: “Do ya feel lucky today, punk? Well? Do ya?”
I hope you’re right. I hope that this is the final nail in the coffin for his career.
