House Republicans are NOT “keeping the government closed”. Democrats are!!!
Republicans have voted 4 (FOUR!!!!) times on individual bills that fund all necessary parts of government.
Dems are just throwing a tantrum because they can’t have things their way (one big lump bill without Obamacare), if they can’ play like they want they’ll just not approve anything.
The dems know if the Repubs are able to do this this time, that the House has just realized they have the useful power of the purse and could have been using this all alongm but somewhere along the way had given it up. The House might actually start to use it to reign in Big Government. It scares the democrats to death to think the Republicans might have figured this out.
It is the Dems fault, not the Republicans!
Republicans need to be super aggressive in getting that message out. Dems are holding up funding! Say it over and over until someone finally listens!
Agree completely. I was reacting only to the idea that the GOP would cave on this...they must not cave.
