So the GOP can appease the fundie extremists who don’t believe women should have a say in their own healthcare, so the GOP can allow the corporations that fund them to pour poison into the air we breath and the water we drink without consequence to increase their profits, and, perhaps most importantly, so right-wingnuts can “prove” that government doesn’t work/we don’t need government.
Did I miss anything?
And to anyone dumb enough to believe that the House bill to extend the budget for a week, and the military’s budget to the end of the fiscal year, is a serious one I have a few questions for you; Do you honestly believe that a one-week extension that changes nothing WOULDN’T pass? Why is the one-week offer contingent on taking cuts to the military’s budget off the table? Why is the GOP insisting that a one-week extension come at the price of defunding planned parenthood and the EPA without negotiation? And finally, why were some in the GOP chanting “Shut it down! Shut it down!” inside and outside congress, and cheering when their teabagger leaders were saying on the floor that they’d rather shut it down than compromise, at all?
The Democrats have compromised enough. At this point, the only option is to let the GOP shut it down until the teabagger faction concedes defeat on the riders. I would suggest that social security checks to the seniors, who voted teabagger in large numbers, be stopped until the government is open and functioning normally again.
