    Obama vows to veto short-term bill(edited)

    This shows that Obama and the democrats are playing politics and care nothing about the people of this country

    Obama vows to veto short-term bill - Washington Times

    The White House has vowed to veto the short-term spending bill House Republicans will vote on this afternoon, taking away the safety net that could have given both sides another week to avert a government shutdown.

    Without a short-term extension, the options would be narrowed to either a broad successful deal or a shutdown as of midnight Friday.

    “If presented with this bill, the president will veto it,” the White House said in an official statement of policy.

    Yes, and the Republicans definitely aren't playing politics with the budget proposals either. (including "bidget" proposals that end medicare and the health care reform bill. no that's definitely not playing politics)

    To be fair, if this proposal does not have any objectionable riders, it should be signed. Avoiding an actual shutdown should be a goal.

    The GOP wants a balanced budget and to cut the deficit. Notice the GOP wants military paid if government shutdown and Obama would stop that

    Or it shows he just wants to end this stupidity now and decide of a budget for 2011.

    This is all because the democrats did not act before the elections. That shows it is all politics and this all falls on the democrats lack of action and negotiations.

    I hope Republicans pass it. If President Obama vetoes it, let it be on him.

    That would explain the policy riders on the appropriations. Face it, both sides are playing politics instead of trying to find solutions.

    We were told yesterday we may not be able to get expedited passports for a number of employees if the slow-down occurs, we had to bring this up to international customers. Yay politicians.

    IMO, it will take more political courage to prevent a shutdown than to precipitate one. If anything, the occurrence of a shutdown might well demonstrate an example of leadership failure given how much time had been available to negotiate a compromise, especially if non-germane matters led to the shutdown.

    Furthermore, if the dispute is truly about the amount of budget reductions, then a straight funding bill without any policy riders should be feasible. After all, Congress would merely be appropriating funds at levels more consistent with budget realities, not attempting to legislate new policy that has little to do with the nation's budget situation. Furthermore, if fiscal policy is the overriding priority, efforts to legislate policy that are extraneous to fiscal matters would represent a diversion from the priority at hand.

    Finally, the one-week continuing resolution (CR) may actually be counterproductive in that it could increase prospects of a longer-duration shutdown. The proposed CR is not a straight one-week funding bill. Military funding for the remainder of the fiscal year would be provided in the draft CR.

    Hence, if no deal were reached after another week had passed, it would actually be easier for many legislators to rationalize a shutdown and to dig in for an extended period of time under the assumption that one of the core functions of government would not be affected. That, in turn, could actually promote greater rigidity which would undermine prospects for compromise. Hence, reasonable as the CR might seem, its design could actually increase the prospects for a more prolonged shutdown. After all, if the military's needs were being met, the political risks and consequences of holding out over divisive social issues would be much less than if no such funding were being provided.
