Now who will wear this?
The Republicans or the Democrats.
Security threats on the rise and they shut down the main agency.
Appears to be a repeat of the last attempted shutdown of the Govt.
WASHINGTON — Republicans vowing to govern effectively as a congressional majority failed a fundamental test Friday evening, when House leaders could not pass a temporary measure to avert a partial shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security, leaving lawmakers scrambling for a solution before money was to run out at midnight.
In a stunning and humiliating setback for Speaker John A. Boehner and his leadership team, the House voted 224 to 203 against their plan to extend funding for the department for three weeks.
