House Democrats are waiting in line this morning to sign a discharge petition to force a vote to reopen government. With all House Democrats and 30 House Republicans, we can vote to end the #GOPshutdown. We #DemandAVote.
Who is in the wheelchair?
The guy who Joe Biden told to stand up???
They certainly aren’t standing in line to sign up for ObamaCare.
Great! Present the Petition to Obama and Reid right away!
why don’t they just “deem” it open, and no one will notice the difference?
I guess Chuck can stand up and vote with Pelosi
Can we sign a petition to discharge pelosi?
I am going out on a limb here. IMHO we are watching the end of the Gelding Ole Party. By the 2014 elections there will be a replacement party - I can only pray and hope that West, Cruz, Palin, and Lee are part of the leadership.
Any Rino signing that pos is committing political suicide.
I am afraid we reached under the table, found the hose, pulled it up and put it in our mouth then inhaled chlorine gas once more. I am tending to believe the polls which evidence the current demographic’s hatred of Republicans. I’ll bet the Republicans will be thrown out of office by the thousands. People forget that the American demographic is no longer American it is African, Asian and Latin American and they hate us with a passion.
The dems are keeping all of their HOR reps in line, even though some of them will assuradly lose seats to a constitutional conservative. The fact that the RINOs are still getting away with this stuff and not standing firm when we were WINNING means the Republican Party is over.
The only thing I could see is a HOR revolt replacing Boehner if he can't stop 'pubs from signing that petition. Otherwise, we might as well go our own way.
“Chuck” — LOL...Where’s Joe to urge him on?
Smart...they created a #GOPshutdown hashtag to drive their meme. Why aren’t our guys that smart for a change? Maybe they are down at Kinkos printing some flyers for delivery by snailmail.
I believe they have already deemed the debt ceiling nonexistent and have overdrawn the debt line.
They are now scrambling to get the debt ceiling raised to cover their tracks before anyone notices they have borrowed more than allowed
I wish these buffoons would just once do something that is GOOD for America and Americans. I guess I’m asking for too much. The Me, Me, Me, Congress. Always putting themselves and their political careers first.
Tammy Duckworth, a war veteran, but still a Democrat.
They must raise it so the Obamas can take more multi million dollar vacations and send more $$ to alqueda et al, dontcha know.
And also so all the offices and staffs can have their holiday parties, not that any of them would dare have a CHRISTMAS party.
Who are they petitioning — themselves???
It is all about their careers in both parties for that matter. The American people are too blind to see.
We have to acknowledge that a substantial number of our “own forces” in places like ME, CA, and even AZ and SC for that matter, support sellout and RINOism.
Suck on that hose yourself, buddy.
And while you're at it why don't you just change your screen name to "Debbie Downer"
Where will you be tomorrow, loser?
Standing around picking your nose, whining all about what a great conservative you are, or picketing Washington with real conservatives and likeminded Veterans like the rest of us will be?
I must be missing something.
I was relieved to see the news that Obama had slammed the door on Boehner, and mightily cheered to see that the prissy double-talking back-stabbing Paul Ryan had his widdo fingahs burnt.
Obama has just told the most moderate members of the House, including the current media darling (I don’t know how many times I heard Ryan referred to as ‘the grown-up in the House yesterday) to go straight to hell.
If Obama thinks he can govern through the likes of Susan Collins and John McCain, let him have a go at it.
He has just handed the House the ammunition to say, Sorry, pal, you are on your own.
And-—and-—if the House caves in to a plan from Obama, Collins, McCain, Graham and the like...then we are finished as the country we knew and we may as well forget about the ballot box and start getting our affairs in order and prep to fend for ourselves.
Either way I read this as GOOD NEWS.

I hope and pray you are correct. The time is NOW.
I think Helen Waite is in charge of House Dem discharge petitions. If they want one they need to go to Helen Waite!
If the Republicans cave, that is EXACTLY what will happen because the Democrats are lying about what this whole budget battle is all about, they have defined a false narrative and are trying to stick it to the Republicans.
The false narrative will stick unless the Republicans carry through and demonstrate what the fight is all about.
The Republicans control spending and they can fund essential government functions on a case by case basis and issue a Debt Ceiling waiver to fund sac and every essential government service Obama tries to shut down out of spite and to make things as painful as possible for the American people.
Let Obama try to defend $2 Billion for Obama Phones and government funded Gold Plated Healthcare packages for political elites while he shuts down Death Benefits for Soldiers killed in HIS wars and his Brown Shirts in the Parks and Recreation deny Americans access to their Public Parks.
People will be amazed at how much of their money is wasted on grants to cronies and crazy programs.
They will also be surprised at how much of the Government they will never miss when it goes away, not to mention as how much better their lives will be when certain arms of Government cease to exist.
We sure learned this when our local municipality had to tighten it's belt and cut job functions like the Lawn Watering Ordinance Enforcement Officer .
You have never lived until you have had to lose a day off from go to court to go before a Judge to pay a 500 dollar fine for the class on misdemeanor of watering your lawn in the middle of the day.
Even worse when the city prosecutor drops the charges 10 minutes before you are scheduled to present your Appeal to a Higher Court to keep their illegal and abusive little ordinance from being overturned by a the higher court.
At any rate, we sure don't miss the Lawn Gestapo in our community.
Probably James Langevin, a permanently paralyzed ‘Rat from Rhode Island.
Picture below shows Tammy Duckworth, socialist ‘Rat from the Chicago suburbs, who was in the military and lost both legs.
