    Senate deal averts shutdown

    Can we say bipartisanship ? nahhh lol....neither of them would dare take a chance being blamed for holding up disaster relief



    Senate leaders struck a deal Monday that would avert a Sept. 30 government shutdown, a breakthrough that came after the Federal Emergency Management Agency determined that its disaster relief funds would not run out this week.

    It's bull ****. Just more games. They all (most notably leadership all around) need to go. Not a one of them want to take a stand and take responsibility for anything.

    Maybe they should try bipartisanship more often. The wrangling is giving the US form of government a bad name globally: BBC News - Shame, embarrassment and Congress

    Or we could do away with the Bush-era tax cuts AND cut spending - and actually pay down the deficit during the good times like we once did. Not continuing to pay down the deficit as Clinton was doing when things were good and cutting revenue instead is one of the reasons that we are now in the shape we are in. Reagan / GWB financial policies are responsible for the mess we are in.

    Live in the now and stay on subject. We are broke and dems want to go even more in debt, reps want to at least break even.

    Really? Where did Republicans suddenly get religion on this? Cheney said "deficits don't matter." Republicans have certainly not governed with concern over the deficit in the past. How many budgets did Reagan and both Bushes balance?

    We're reaching the point where as a nation we have to decide what we want, and make tax rates enough to pay for it consistently.

    That's unfortunate. More spending = closer to collapse.
