Seems the ReThuglicans have done it again.
They have let the Federal Government shut down, all because they didn’t get their way. First partial shutdown in 17 years as Congress failed to pass any federal spending bills for fiscal 2014, which began at 12:00 A.M., Tuesday, Oct. 1.
This is how they operate. Remember when the tax cut for the rich was on the table, Bam vowing to put a stop to the rich gettin’ richer? They wanted to drop UI payments for millions of out of work Americans if they didn’t get their way. Boo Hoo. They held us (yes, even me at the time!) all hostage, till they got a compromise on the bill. Thats whats up now. Playin’ dirty.
Most people will still get their SSI checks and the VA will only be partially closed, but dayumm! Why we gotta get to this???
The main obstacle to keeping the government open has been the insistence of the most conservative House “Tea Party” ReThuglicans that even a six week budget stopgap bill (known as a continuing resolution) include some provision defunding or delaying all or part of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObamaCare), which they claim the vast majority of the public opposes. They claim.
People in some cases, blame the Democrats for all this. But look at the facts: ObamaCare is settled law–passed by Congress, upheld by the Supreme Court, and reaffirmed by Obama’s 2012 re-election, so why is this an issue today? Why don’t they just let things be; its already been settled. I think Obama and the Dems are standing their ground. I don’t blame them. This time, unlike the UI debacle, they called the ReThuglican’s bluff. Put the h3ll up or shut the h3ll up.
“One faction of one party, in one house of Congress, in one branch of government doesn’t get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election.” -President Obama
The approval rating of Bam has gone down to about 44%. So what. The Thuglicans is down to a nasty, record low of a hot 10%. In the end, the people will blame the ones who need to be blamed- we know who they are^. You wont be able to miss ‘em. They’ll be the ones with that a thick layer of shyt on their faces.
Hey- I’m jus’ sayin’…
