Well the GOP threatened to shut down government because some wanted to not raise the debt ceiling cuz they thought it bad for the country to continue exponentially keep raising the debt limit. Of course, they folded as they always do and raised it anyway despite their promises.
This time the Dims are threatening to shut down the government because they do ...[text shortened]... ims no matter who is elected. There is no room for conservatives in the US federal government.
I find it interesting that after all your complaints about the size of the Federal government you are now behind Trump's efforts to toss more spending into the current continuing resolution which is supposed to pay only for normal day to day governmental expenses. From Mick Mulvaney, Director of the OMB:
“We want more money for defense, we want to build a border wall, and we want more money for immigration enforcement, law enforcement,”
Of course, we weren't supposed to need taxpayer money for the wall, since Mexico was going to pay for it.
whodey is nothing if not consistently inconsistent.
