Reid warns shutdown is possible (Greece is defaulting, U.S. next?)
TheHill.com ^ | 09/20/11 | Bob Cusack

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 just love being threatened by these dictators. Nothing like promoting chaos....Like Bloomberg announcing possible riots in NYC.

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...

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.

This is all about the Democrats insisting on a big money increase in a bill to fund FEMA disaster relief but it looks more like a game of 'chicken' initiated by the insufferable Harry Reid so that he can cry that 'Republicans don't care!' or some such emotional nonsense. Polls show that when it comes to the nations economy, more Americans believe Obama is more responsible than congressional Republicans. When I read that - and stopped banging my head on the desk - I realized that this is why the congressional Democrats keep advancing economic proposals that are non-starters with Republicans. So they can claim that the Republicans are 'stone walling' attempts by Democrats to 'fix' the U.S. economy. Yeah, its lame but then, Obama has a 39% approval rating yet we all know he should be a lot closer to 15%, so, go figure.

check out Table III-C

Total Public Debt
Subject to Limit
$14,684,284

Statutory Debt Limit
$14,694,000

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.

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.

The Rats will make this threat more and more because they know that Republican office-holders run in terror from this...all because of Newt and Clinton back in the 90's and the Republican terror of the demagoguery from the MSM.

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.

Less than Ten Thousand Million Bucks left! That is pocket change for Harry!

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.

Reid told reporters, "We're not going to cave on this."



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.

Let them close the crap down! Who cares? Half 3/4 of what they are doing is against the Constitution anyway!

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.
