Now is as good a time as any.
If the Republicans were to pass clean CR's and raise the debt limit at 986 Billion they would be seen to be acting "rationally". This would give the GOP leverage when the CR expires and congress is forced to pass a new budget. The STARTING point of negotiations would be 2% more spending than the Ryan budget, and every single Democrat would have supported spending at those levels.
You'd start the negotiations only 19 Billion dollars away from the Ryan Budget!!! The shut down is going to cost us more than that. Somehow that's where we'd be starting budget negotiations even though the GOP had lost lost 5 of the last 6 national elections and the 2012 house by 2million votes. Somehow you've still gotten virtually everything you wanted, and yet you walk around like the Democrats are screwing you.
In reality the Democrats and the President have gotten absolutely fleeced by the GOP. But you have a mental deficiency; I call it winaphobia. The prospect of accepting victory terrifies you.
Notice that I chose a cartoon that makes fun of both Hillary and Obama. I figured that you wouldn't understand it unless it somehow made fun of a Democrat.
If you need further help understanding I suggest you dig a hole in your backyard that is deep enough that you can't crawl out of it. Then jump in and dig your way out. Make sure you get all of the dirt out of the hole. Do this until the debt ceiling has been raised. Then you can proudly call yourself a TRUE conservative.
