Any government shutdown would be ordered by the petulant President Obama and Senate Democrats
Sept 23, 2013 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 09/23/2013 11:35:00 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Let's be absolutely clear here. If the Democrat controlled Senate rejects the Continuing Resolution passed by the House that completely funds the entire government except for President Obama's unconstitutional, nation-wrecking, job-killing, pet project, the trainwreck also known as "Obamacare," then it is they (Obama and the Democrat Senate) who are clearly ordering the totally radical and unnecessary shutdown the of the federal government.

The bill passed by the House fully funds all legitimate government functions. The people do not want federal government controlling their healthcare and they are speaking through their elected representatives.

It would be prudent for the President and the Senate to abide by the will of the people rather than threatening them. Pass the bill that funds the government!

And stop lying. Do not blame any shutdown on the Republicans in the House. They are doing the will of the people. When you blame them for your own obstinate acts, you are lying and you are punishing the people.

And when you claim our military won't be paid, you are lying. When you say social security checks won't go out you are lying. Past experience proves that all essential government services will continue. The main thing that will happen if the Democrat President and the Democrat Senate orders the radical shutdown of the government is hundreds of thousand of non-essential government employees will be laid off. Big deal. Life will go on.

Listening to Cspan right now and even the Republicans speaking are repeating the lie of the military not getting paid during a shutdown. That’s a total lie. The congress will pass emergency bills funding the absolutely essential services and the president will sign them. They wouldn’t dare not to.

They’re all repeating these lies in an attempt to frighten the people and each other. This is no way for adults to govern a free nation.

Where are the statesmen?

It’s about time folks started making this point. I’ve been saying this since the first moment this year libs started accusing the GOP of “wanting to shut down the government.”

I’m starting to see some media traction on this point as well. FINALLY!

Obamacare cannot be funded without a House vote. That’s all that needs to be known.

I wouldn’t trust Boehner and McConnell — they’ll instantly blame Ted Cruz and announce that they stand with Obama.

If only all the capitalists gave their money to Obama, maybe the fierce leader then would be motivated to take care of us. Come on, we are stopping his love when defunding Obamacare (sarc off)

It's the primary strategy of the bald-faced-lying liberals - "if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the 'truth'." They are disciples of Alinsky and will use these tactics at all cost.

That being said, spot on post Mr Robinson!

+1 but, the so called shut down is a canard anyway.

What would be shut down that really matters?

We are learning to do without all kinds of services, including access tours of our White Hut.

I don’t think they are going to shutter anything that makes a difference anyway.

I did have dinner with a lovely woman from Virginia couple of months ago. She is a contractor to the government and was losing something like 4 days a months.

Felt bad for her on the one hand and on the other, looking at the bigger picture, couldn’t help but think “Terrible for her and the country knocked a few Benjamin’s off the debt”.

Jim. I'm utterly amazed that the Republicans can't even find the stomach to say the same simple thing....

"Any government shutdown would be ordered by the petulant President Obama and Senate Democrats"

(Obama and the Democrat Senate) who are clearly ordering the totally radical and unnecessary shutdown the of the federal government.

True, but with the propaganda machine known as the media churning out anti-GOP rhetoric, it will be impossible to convince the pinhead public that 0bama and the dems are to blame.

Exactly! From National Journal:

In fact, a government shutdown is quite different from the way it is commonly viewed by the public. Although the lapse in discretionary budget authority would likely impact some day-to-day routine operations of the government—such as the National Park Service—essential and necessary functions of the government and ones that have relevant health-based concerns would continue. Social Security and Medicare would likely continue in large part because they are mandatory programs;
A government shutdown seems about as scary as the infamous Sequester.

Social security is not a legitimate government function

Why are we funding it?

Shutting down the Federal government is a good idea under any circumstance. The Federal government is an organ of the rinos and the Dims.
The Federal government is a truly repressive totalitarian organization that oppresses producers so a shut down would be a relief, a holiday for most of us.
Starve the beast.
