    According to the Tea Partiers, compromise = "caving." To the most strident, having a civil conversation with a Democrat or saying anything nice about one makes someone a "RINO."

    The federal government takes in a whole lot of money each year and yet can't even manage a budget.

    Wouldn't it be prudent to ask why they need more money, where they intend to spend it, and why they didn't plan ahead?

    He wasn't threatening. He was stating facts.

    Maybe they feel they've already compromised their country into many trillions of dollars of debt.

    No doubt. A threat has a possibility of actually happening.

    So if the government shuts down, there's money to pay other budget items, and he doesn't pay SS recipients, I'm sure you will be in the minority thinking his statement wasn't a threat.

    Not necessarily...

    Threat: a declaration of an intention or determination to inflict punishment, injury, etc., in retaliation for, or conditionally upon, some action or course (dictionary.com).
