    Yeah, that 2013 government shutdown totally screwed them in the midterms...

    If you really don't like that stuff, then get your politicians to offer a deal...you know, compromise.

    Good news! We adverted a shut down! The nutty tea party conservatives wont take us down that road again. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Thanks Democrats, you almost shut the government down. Jerks!

    How does it feel for the Dems to be wearing that shoe now? The party of NO is who? The Democratic Party of course. You want examples of hypocrisy, here's another one of the Hypocratic Party.

    BTW, black, Hispanics, women and children would have starved to death using leftwing politics.

    It ain't just the Democrats shutting down the government. I have been watching C-SPAN today, and Boehner just postponed a vote on the spending bill because he can't get enough votes on board to pass it. The government may be shutting down, but if you want to be honest about it, you are going to have to admit that there are many more Republicans in the House than Democrats. Put 2 and 2 together, you can see that mainstream Republicans are unable to keep the Tea Party in line. This shutdown will be the fault of both parties. Unfortunately, since Republicans own the House, they are going to also own the shutdown if it happens.

    I think your a little confused on what hackery is. Please reread your last sentence in post #54 then reread my response to that sentence...

    You're missing the point. Last year the Dems were making false political hay about Republicans shutting down govt..................children would die blah blah blah. Just want them to see what it's like when the hackery is tossed in their hypocritical laps. The Party of NO, blah blah blah. They've been talking this bull**** up for years. Just wait till the new Congress, they'll probably go on steroids.

    New Congress won't change things. Republicans already have the House, and so far they have been unable to pass the bill.
