    House to try again to pass 3 emergency funding bills amid government slimdown

    House to try again to pass 3 emergency funding bills amid government slimdown | Fox News

    Proof that it is the Democrats who are holding the government hostage, not the Republicans.

    The House of Representatives will make another attempt Wednesday to pass three emergency funding bills after each failed to obtain the required two-thirds majority Tuesday.

    The House Rules Committee is scheduled to meet at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday to consider the three measures backed by House Republicans, which are aimed at reopening parks and monuments, continuing veterans’ benefits and allowing the municipal government of the District of Columbia to function.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Seriously....do you actually believe this or are you simply trying to be a good Republican soldier and engage in more of the spin that has failed sadly over the last couple of days.
    This is just more of the political grandstanding/gamesmanship that the American people see right through. You guys are losing badly in the public opinion forum...what makes you think that continuing the same failed line of extortion is going to suddenly sway public opinion in your favor? give it up dude....the public isn't buying this BS. The teabaggers are floundering and will be trying to figure out how to save face without coming out looking as ridiculous as they currently are.

    Would it not provide more proof of how reasonable the Republicans are to just pass the Senate bill
    with ACA removed, rather than piecemeal?

    Its funny watching a purely partisan hack accusing others of being partisan hacks. This dictator in charge would negotiate with a country that stones gay people to death but won't negotiate with the duly elected legislative body of the people and you blame that legislative body? Shameful.

    And why must the Republicans be forced to go against why they were elected? Why can't the president offer the same delay in his beloved health care act that he's granted to big corporations? Why this is that unreasonable?

    LOL.....spouting Bonner's talking points? Explain to us how a law passed by both houses of Congress and upheld by the United States Supreme Court after a Constitutional challenge is akin to a "dictatorhsip".....this should be good.......

    Republicans were elected to whine and cry, hold their breath and shut down the government? Why then are the overwhelming majority of the country against this tantrum they are throwing?

    Their job is to pass a Budget. They can fight the merits of the ACA separately. Tying it to the Budget then whining about
    nobody negotiating with them is not helpful, as many in their own party are arguing.

    Do I believe that the Democrats are spinning this with their lies? Absolutely fact.

    Why do the Democrats not have to compromise? Why can't they compromise? The Republicans have many times now.
