WaPo’s lost their mojo.

Only the most stupid (e.g., in side the beltway)dorks believe them any more.

Warning to Republicans...do this and you’re history.

Period.

“Warning to Republicans...do this and you’re history.”

I agree.

Wishful thinking by Dems. Hey, how’s that “We Won’t Negotiate” slogan workin’ out for ‘em?!

I hope the Republican house leadership is making sure that it is known that any Republican House member who’s name appears on said petition will become persona-non-grata in the party and lose his or her committee assignments.

How are they going to force the GOP? Have another Reid tantrum hissy fit?

At one point, I would have said, “time for a third party”, or “I’ll never financially support the GOP again”.

But this kind of response is satisfying to Dems. Daily Kos likes to post FR outrages.

So, this being an inadequate response, what is the next step?

Peter King probably has his fingers in this somewhere. He needs to get a serious attitude adjustment by the leadership or his constituents.

Or have Cher Twitter some more death threats to TP'ers.

They’re desperate to hide the Dems’ blocking of SNAP and WIC funds this afternoon.

Every day it’s a new fantasy story about the “moderates revolt”, which never happens. Boehner is protecting these “moderates” from having to vote on the “clean CR” and they love him for it.

Yes. To come this far, and apparently have at least decent poll numbers (since that’s important in this age), and just throw it all away...what’s the good of voting, when the opposition will just steamroll your representation anyway, as if they don’t exist?

There is a simple way for Boehner to avoid this even if democrats get the signatures....adjourn the house before the vote takes place. Then NOTHING can be voted on until the house is back in session...

Thanks for your post. I keep telling myself to not start the crying until we know the song is over.

The dope Lankford needs to go back to Falls Creek and soak his head before he resumes his vital work as program director there.

But now House Democrats say they have found a previously filed bill to use as a discharge petition — one that would fund the government at sequester levels.

The bill in question is the “Government Shutdown Prevention Act,” which was introduced in March by GOP Rep. James Lankford of Oklahoma. As the Congressman’s release describes it:

If Congress fails to approve a budget by the end of each fiscal year, the Government Shutdown Prevention Act would ensure that all operations remain running normally without any interruption of services by automatically triggering a continuing resolution (CR) or short-term, stop-gap spending device. The bill creates an automatic CR for any regular appropriations bill not completed before the end of the fiscal year. After the first 120 days, auto-CR funding would be reduced by one percentage point and would continue to be reduced by that margin every 90 days

Boehner has taken a hard stand yet too many here are openly complaining about him...I dont understand this. Look at the 24 Rs siding with RATS!

I support Boehners efforts...

The Constitution says that both chambers have to agree to an adjournment of more than 3 days. Reid would never consent to a House adjournment over this.

What a stupid headline.

Harry and Barack are the only ones keeping it “shutdown”
