Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday there is a chance that the government could shutter at the end of this month.
Criticizing House Republicans for the disaster relief provisions in their budget bill, Reid told reporters, "We're not going to cave on this."

Again ? LOL
He says that like it’s a bad thing..........
Do it, Harry, you tete du merde. What do you have to lose? Nevada is already in the toilet.
I guess that’s one way to stall Solargate, and Fast and Furious Murdergate...
—Again ? LOL—
Tell me about it. I read that headline and had to check the date on the article.
Pleeease shut it down! Pleeeeeeaaase?
Mein Gott, is he still around?
Yo, Republicans, are you listening?
Last time you guys produced a last minute compromise Bonehead Saved The Day bill that nobody liked, got Ryan and others on the tube explaining it as a victory for all Americans, and what do you get for your effort?
I'm getting impatient for January 2013.
Again ? LOL
Harry forgot the one about the social security checks - he’s slipping:)
I don’t even care.
Do it! Do it! Do it! Please?
Oh so shut down the goverment f-—head! No one cares! My life and the lives of most normal people don’t revolve around government other than as it negatively impacts us. This boy who cried wolf threat has gotten old-—much like Dummy Reid himself.
IT’S CRAZY HARRY’S CARPETS GOING-OUT-OF-BUSINESS SALE!!!
-Soiled blue shag! FREE SOLAR PANEL WITH PURCHASE!!!
-Unraveling GPS weave! GUIDANCE SAYS BUY!
-Bathroom special for that Constitutional! NEGATIVE RIGHTS!
So come on down! RoLL one up with Our President! We got plenty of TEACHING MOMENTS at CRaZy HaRrY’s CaRpEtS!!!
Go for it Harry - we know the party of NO when we see it up close and personal.
A cry for relevance.
Please, do us all a favor and drive some nails into the "shutters" so they stay shut!
A government shutdown is not something that most people who actually work for a living in this country fear...
Don’t you have anything new to say Harry?
“My beating Heart Bounds with exulting motion.”
Nicholas Rowe’s Tamerlane, a tragedy, 1702:
Du Ma’ Nheiu Harry You Socialist Scum!
I believe that ALL of Congress should be placed on “un-employment”, until 2012. NO GOOD can come of ANY Legislation that passes THIS Senate and THIS POTUS.
Pay the bills, sure, but let’s stop incurring new ones for a while.
Reid’s a jerk.
check out Table III-C
Total Public Debt
Subject to Limit
Statutory Debt Limit
Act of August 2, 2011, permanently increased the statutory debt limit to $14,694 billion
Can you do the Math? I thought you could! Less than $10B left on US credit Card.
Just unreal. Thanks for pdf link. Just sickening.
If the government shuts down will it save us any money? I bet not, I imagine the out of control spending will continue since most of the politicians don’t seem to think the government actually needs to have money in order to spend it.
Reid bitching about the pubbie budget bill ?
Harry where the hell is your budget ?
Someday the Republicans will have to face up to this demon or it will eat them alive. Now is the time, when they threaten shutdown over disaster relief, it's gone way too far.
The way I look at it; For every Million bucks taken from the Economy by the Goobermint, Business has to fire Fifty employees help adsorb the loss.
***k you Reid you POS ****in a**ho**. Do it you ****** ********, and **** *** ** !!!
Do or die, Reid. Do or die!
LOL! I hate these people, I hate them, I hate them. They are destroying us.
I’m so confused....
I thought what they got was supposed to last through the election season? WTF!
In other words, if Americans don't support the union thug bail out bill, the government shuts down. Who's holding who hostage again?
I say shut it down. It's not like anyone would miss it.
Harry is the “France” of the U. S. Senate......trying to flex his muscles to hide his own insignificance.
Let them close the crap down! Who cares? Half 3/4 of what they are doing is against the Constitution anyway!
These are the people Moderates and RINO’s want us to comprimise with?? It has become such a joke every Democrat bill/proposal or Republican idea will cause DOOM....Or a Crisis or Job Loss! Please the Debt Ceiling “Deal” was suppossed to prevent the US being Downgraded....How did that go Republicans? Now we have this Idiotic Debt Panel and Barry has Billions more to spend! WISE UP REPUBLICANS! Democrats do NOT want the best for the Country or the GOP! They want nothing less than the complete destruction of BOTH!
Yeah Yeah WHAAATEVER hairy.
Oh, Don’t be such a tease, Harry
Reid’s lying. The socialists won’t shut government down long enough to allow economic or civil improvements.
The Democrats do not want the government to shut down. People might actually realize how little they need they government.
Ole Harry is such a tease!
Make my day Harry.
Senator Reid doesn’t seem to care much about changing his game plan,it stays the same every year.
I had a Jr. High History teacher that once said in a moment of whimsy that he thought that the old method of Government was to protect the citizens from the Barbarians that would invade and pillage the nation.
Now the citizens have made the barbarians the Government so that the pillage was more systematic and equitable.
He was more accurate than I thought at the time. The problem with barbarians is that they don’t understand the root-culture of the nation they are invading so they endeavor to tear it down and leave it ruins to show their ‘disgust’.
They also don’t bother to rebuild they just move on to the next place to invade and pillage. That’s their ‘root-culture’ you see and we need to ‘respect and understand’ them for it.
