HOW ON EARTH could this government shutdown be blamed on the Republicans instead of the Democrats and the President. There is absolutely NO REASON for the government to be shut down right now based on what the Republicans PASSED and offered in the House. As far as I can tell from even the Liberal media’s reports, the ENTIRE GOVERNMENT could be UP AND RUNNING with the exception of the Obamacare machine. The ONLY REASON that the government is shut down right now is because the DEMOCRATS are SHUTTING it down to get their way on OBAMACARE funding. They could let all of the government be running except the portions not funded, but no; if the Democrats can’t have ALL of their demands, they want the WHOLE government down. If they can’t have Obamacare, they’re going to keep all the unrelated, FULLY FUNDED parts of government down, too. It could all be running, but the DEMOCRATS won’t let it because they’re taking an ALL-OR-NONE approach, demanding their ENTIRE way–“my way or nothing”. THEY are holding America hostage to force the Republicans to give them their way.
Likewise, there IS NO REASON TO DEFAULT ON THE NATIONAL DEBT IF WE DON’T RAISE THE DEBT LIMIT. Even WITHOUT raising the debt limit, we have PLENTY of money to pay the debt service without going into default. So, just like with the government shutdown, the Democrats are HOLD US HOSTAGE, threatening to DEFAULT on the debt–when they DON’T HAVE TO–JUST TO GET THEIR WAY ON SPENDING.
How can anyone–Liberal, Conservative, Moderate, left, right, or center–fail to see this? How? It’s amazing. Then again, after watching America elect President Obama twice and call for Zimmerman’s head on a plate without a shed of evidence against him, I shouldn’t be surprised.
