They’ve been threatening this for a long time and never follow through. To hell with ‘em.
Ichabod is playing like he has some balls, even though everyone knows differently.
This is the usual dog and pony show. All we ever see are threats and surrender. I do not believe that McConnell or most of the GOP leadership have the testicles to tell the Dear Leader to take a hike.
This man is NO LEADER! I believe he gets more animated taking a crap!
Hey Mitch: “Money talks and the bull sh*t you’re full of walks”!
Oh, BULL CRAP!
How many times do these limp-wristed, gutless POS pansies think they can pretend like they have a set? Coming from this turtle-faced mumbling moron makes it even more ridiculous, especially given his latest capitulation to the communists... absolutely pathetic.
At this point, shutting down the government is not just a possibility. It is a requirement. We will have no future if we let these crooks steal what little we have left.
Repubs caving in 3 - 2 - 1.
Stop talkin’ about it, and start shuttin’ it down. Pull the funding for every damn department, bureau, office and program.
Get serious about it...
No worry about a shutdown. Zero has already promised to use the 14th amendment or mint a trillion dollar coin to spend as much as he wants, whenever he wants.
McConnell was just kidding to stave off a primary challenge. If McConnell gets out of line and a shutdown is really threatened, zero will just make him disappear. All zero’s actions will be upheld by John Robert’s kangaroo court.
I’m sure the Dems are shaking in their boots:) They’re laughing like we are at this hollow display of bravado. Weepers and whiners at the GOP out number the strong.
I can stand to lose an election. But I’m embarrassed at the spineless representatives and their comments that go nowhere.
If he were honest, he wouldn’t use the term “spending cuts” when the truth is they’re only talking about a slightly smaller increase in spending.
Oh the media is hard at work...
POLITICO frames the debate this way for their masters:
“McConnell wouldnt say on Sunday whether he was prepared to shoot the hostage and allow the country to default on its loans ...a move which would result in the nation defaulting on its loans and prompt a government shutdown”
Stephanopoulos on phone to WH: “Yes, David. I’ll say ‘Shoot the hostage’ verbatim just like you told me. Don’t I always say exactly what you tell me?”
It could be a blessing in disguise. The riots that would follow would likely be cathartic for many.
End all foreign aid.
Out of the UN, UN out of the US.
Defund Dept. of Education, Homeland Security, EPA, DEA, TSA,
ICE, and Obamacare.
Disqualify 75% of all persons on welfare, SNAP, food stamps, etc.
Mitch, I’ve got some spending cuts for you.
Big talk before folding up.
