Now here is the kicker. On the Republican bill, three of the Senators who were supported by the Tea Party voted against their own bill. Eleven Democrats broke with their own party to vote against their own bill.
It is one thing to talk about what you favor, but the acid test is taking a position when it is time to vote, something which goes on the public record. and it looks like 3 Republicans and 11 Democrats are cowards by this measure. I might expect this from Democrats, but I am surprised that the Republicans who voted against their own measure were Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Jim Demint.
So here is where it stands. The government is set to shut down in a week. When it does, Republicans will be pointing fingers at Democrats, and Democrats will be pointing fingers at Republicans. I, however, will be pointing my finger at each and every one of those sonofabitches who are now in office. But, what the hell, let the accusations and counter accusations begin. At least the budget will be balanced for the time the government is shut down. And who knows? Maybe the American people will decide that America is a better nation without any government - at least without the kind of government we have right now. LOL.
