    Government Shutdown virtually unavoidable at this point

    It's beginning to look more and more like at least a partial government shutdown will begin this Tuesday. The partisanship in DC is so bad at this point that an agreement seems doubtful. If this happens it will be the first time since 1995 that the goverment has shut down. 40 percent of federal workers will be furloughed. This means approximately 600 thousand people will not be earning a paycheck. The most shameful result of this will be the active duty military will not receive their paychecks.

    Congressional staffers will also be furloughed, national parks and museums will be shut down. The cost to our economy will be more damaging than Obamacare.

    It's a dangerous game the Congress is playing..and one I hope beyond hope people remember on election day.

    Congress may be catching all the heat, but the way the "BIG O" has conducted his regime over the last 5 + years boarders on treason, and nobody calls him on it ???  The "TRANSFORMING" of America to a 3rd world Country !!!

    I think it might have been Calvin Coolidge who said something to the effect that if the Federal government were to disappear tomorrow, the general run of people wouldn't even notice.

    That's probably less true now that the government has become a gigantic union teat at which people who produce absolutely nothing may suckle to their hearts' content with no fear of ever having to justify their positions.

    But I don't really care about any of that.

    What amuses me is just one more aspect of the "Don't do as I do, do as I say" administration we've got here. Few will like to remembeer that Mr. Sortero himself, as a junior senator from someplace near Gary, Indiana, voted against his predecessor's attempts to do exactly the same thing he wants to do now. But when it was Mr. Sortero's turn to ask for yet another blank check, anyone who dared disagree with him was labeled a "hostage-taker in Congress" and accused of "putting party athead of country."

    And -- surprise, surprise -- here we are again with all the usual suspects open-mouthed and on their knees before the Hypocrite-in-Chief.

    All of this might be funny (or at least ironic) if it weren't so precidtably pathetic.

     

     

    Now you listen here! He's not the Messiah . . .   he's a very naughty boy!

    mscricket:  All that has to happen to prevent  the government shut down is for Obama to recognize that congress has the power of the purse, not him.
