Oh please. 1 week makes Boehner look compassionate and still keeps the Dems on the hook.

Reality is not how it looks through the Internet-Lens, kidos.

I’d love to see them cut $100 billion all at once too, but if they end up doing it by cutting a few billion a week through the fall, that seems to be just as good.

What happens now doesn’t really have a major impact in the long run. To really change things we’ll need the Senate and the WH and even then the dems will still likely have at least 40 Senators so there will still be constraints.

You got it.

Too many people here deceived into thinking a Gov't shutdown means "we win" or something.

Weird.

I wish the conversation would be more intellectual about serious matters like this. Bohner knows the dems want to shut the gov’t down so they can twist the truth to blame Republicans...the real battle is the 2012 budget and I heard budgets don’t need a Presidential signature - it can go into effect without Obummer’s approval. This is just pre-show and they are proving the point that DEMS dont’ care about cutting spending - Isn’t it about time we supported these guys instead of always criticizing them when they don’t jump up and down and fix IT ALL at once. The reality is that we are still in the minority in the senate and they need incrementally to stir the pot. It took much longer than 3 months to get our debt to this point, it will take a whole lot longer to begin to draw it down.

Boehner is so compassionate that he passes bills adding 900 billion to the national debt over the next six (seven) months.
