Democratic Senator Carl Levin says House Republican leaders bowing to the Tea Party is the reason for the federal government shutdown.
Levin accuses the Tea Party of doing what the 9/11 terrorists could not: shut down the federal government.
We werent shutdown on 9/11. We kept going. There was a physical attack on us, Levin told reporters on a conference call today, Now you got people who are doing an economic attack on us, saying they will not allow this government to function unless they get their way on a particular issue.
Republican opposition to the Affordable Care Act is behind the standoff between House Republicans and Senate Democrats and the President in the budget stalemate.
Levin says he feels passionate about many issues, including gun control, but Michigans senior U.S. Senator says he would not shut down the government just because hes not getting his way.
Levin adds the cost of restarting the federal government, depending on how long the shutdown lasts, could be in the billions of dollars.
That Fossil is still ALIVE???!!
The Gov wasn’t but the economy sure as hell was.
We were on lock down for two weeks.
Obamacare is TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.
Obamacare has nothing to do with care, health or medical treatment.
Obamacare has everything to do with a mandatory insurance that everyone must buy at the point of the Federal gun.
Obamacare Medical Insurance premiums are under the control of the IRS.
These insurance premiums can be raised every year by the IRS with no involvement by Congress.
Thus, all the present and future Democrat rulers have to do is tell the IRS how much taxpayer dollars need to be forcefully extracted from the taxpayers, and the IRS will extract the money for them.
Hence, Obamacare Insurance is taxation without representation that Traitor John Roberts of THE NINE SUPREMES has ruled it to be above the control of the US Congress, and it will stay until Obamacare is ABOLISHED!
The attack on our country then wasn’t as serious, Carl.
We weren't shut down that day because for that one day, Democrats pretended to be Americans. After that, though, they reverted to form. Unfortunately for us all.
What these faggot commies don’t understand is that the Republicans are doing exactly what the American people want. Screw the “polls”.
Bingo. Still alive? He is retiring to his underground chamber. One dinosaur that should never have been elected.
Bow to the Tea Party?...YOU BET NUMBNUTS! They are bowing to America!
TEA PARTY RULES!!!
Pound the table when you have no facts, Levin.
Karl Marx Lenin is retiring.
It’s an open seat.
Looks like our former SOS, two time elected statewide Terry Lynn Land will be going up against Obama lover, Rep. Gary Peters.
This is going to be a great fight, but Peters, a real smooth talker won’t be able to justify more votes for KenyanKare.
I smell a pickup here.
You are a taker.
The 9/11 brothers of 0bama wanted to hit the capitalist economy (and military ) part of of America, NOT the Federal Gov't.
You are the one who wants to annul the US Constitution.
Fear the free people, elitist National Socialist.
Hey Levin, STFU and GTFO! You’re 79 years old. You are way past your useful expiration date!
No...the government didn’t shut down...nor did the economy.
If I knew how...I would post the pic of W...”Do ya miss me yet?”
W had faults, no doubt. But...can your most horrible dream think about TheWon with Kerry Sec of State after 9/11?
We were blessed...in many ways.
How can one be so stupid?
US debt as a percentage of GDP was less than 60% on 9-11. Today, it’s over 100%. You are shut down because you can not afford to operate at the levels you have become accustomed to. Maybe if you cut staffing at the EPA, the IRS, the DHS, and the NSA, you could afford to live within your means again.
” Tea Party is the reason for the federal government shutdown.”
Damn right. The Tea Party ain’t dead! We are looking to Cruz into 2016.
No more RINO’S GOPE.
>> “We werent shutdown on 9/11. We kept going. There was a physical attack on us,” Levin told reporters
It was the firefighters and citizens that kept going. The govt failed on 9-11. So, shut your pie-hole, Levin.
