The only way the government is going to be funded is if the House rejects Obamacare funding...
Democrats don't give a **** how long the government is down unless they get their Obamacare funding..
Republicans have tried to fund everything else but those pieces of legislation have been denied by the Senate beause that funding doesn't include full funding for Obamacare.
Repealing ACA will increase the federal deficit but that doesn't seem to matter to the Tea Party types who cry about the deficit on a daily basis.
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
A discharge petition is extremely unlikely to work. For one thing,despite an onslaught form the media,the GOP still is standing fairly strong (surprisingly given crybaby Boner). Another is that the GOP HAS actually passed appropriations bills for certain areas,and Reid could actually pass them. He must love Obama and Obamacare more than anything else. Must be the negro dialect and all.
