They threatened it so many times. It is kind of like "The boy who cried wolf" at this point. It doesn't really matter who is the president is, as long as those yahoos (that continue to be voted in) are up on the hill little will be accomplished.

They've cried wolf too many times. Now they just seem like media whores.

I can only hope they get shut down.  We need a break from their BS for once.

But they also need to be aware of the possible backlash, as in 1995-1996. This Congress is already perceived as being a do-nothing body; letting the government shut down would be the ultimate in do-nothingness. There are a lot of representatives who could find themselves in deep hot water next year because of it.

It was on the news. According to what I heard Boehner is saying the house won't agree to any budget that funds the ACA. That man needs to go along with quite a few others that allow their dislike of something to over-ride their common sense.

Then it needs to happen. These politicians on both sides are out of fucking control. I'm so sick of it.
