If Congress approves the budget then there is no shutdown. If Congress changes the budget it goes back tot he President for signature. If he doesn't sign it the govt. shuts down. Get it yet? When will that lightbulb ever go off in that head of yours?
    I understand the tinker toys simplistic non-context answer, but the context, as it was in 95 and 11, is that that the House will try to force the POTUS to sign something that they know he will not. You can try to paint that Clinton shut down the govt in 95.....or that Obama nearly did in 11....or that the sequester was his idea.....or that he will once again do it in this next go around, but this is how insane conservatives have become, how far they remove themselves from reality. They cannot, will not, take credit for what they want.....they try to blame the other side. And further, they think they get away with the lie.

    Obama submitted a 3.77 trillion dollar budget showing he has no interest in lowering the deficit and addressing the debt. Liberals like you continue to buy the rhetoric that he cares so much and that we need a 3.77 trillion dollar Federal Govt. We have 50 sovereign states with their own budgets and tax structure therefore we don't need duplication at the Federal level for much that is already being done at the state level.
    Yawn.....why do you think this old POS rhetorical nonsense is going to get further discussion from me, I trashed this last year. Leave it buried, it still stinks.

    Better yet....secede. Go ahead.

    You might want to actually research your talking points for accuracy before you regurgitate them.

    Following the "shut down" in 1995 the Democrats picked up a grand total of TWO House seats. They also managed to LOSE two Senate seats. So, despite the shut down, Republicans maintained both houses and walked away completely unscathed.

    So much for the belief that Obama cares about cutting the deficit and addressing the debt. He proposes a 3.77 trillion dollar budget and supporters continue to believe the rhetoric and ignore the results.
    It's probably more like GOPers refuse to get rid of $3.77 trillion dollars in offense spending and/or corporate subsidies.

    Incredible and total lack of understanding of exactly what happened in 1995 but again not surprising. Clinton shutdown the govt. and ended up signing the exact legislation he shutdown the govt. over showing that liberals like you only buy the rhetoric and ignore the end result. Obama and the liberal elites love having people like you, so brainwashed by the ideology that you will continue to make a fool of yourself by carrying forward the liberal lies and distortions.

    Whether the Obama budget elicits further discussion from you is irrelevant, you will always be a tool of the left. you only trash yourself no one else. Obama's budget does nothing to cut the deficit and most people understand that. Only the brainwashed refuse to accept reality.

    Offense spending or Offensive spending. I believe it is the latter that needs to go. Corporate subsidies are corporations keeping more of what they earn hardly a taxpayer check back to them. You seem to have a problem keeping more of what you earn or is it just others that you have a problem with keeping more of what they earned?

    I wonder how many Democrats support those subsidies. I'll bet quite a few.

    And what is the reality that we are refusing to accept?

    The reality that the Obama rhetoric is one thing but the results are another. The reality that Barack Obama is a big central govt. liberal with no interest in cutting spending and being fiscally responsible.
