As we approach tonight's deadline for the passing of a budget by our electeds, one thing becomes painfully clear, the Republicans, headed by their ringleader Crybaby Boehner are using their normal, "I'll throw a tantrum if I don't get my way" method of "negotiation". If a budget isn't passed, it will have immediate consequences, most Federal functions will be curtailed, if not halted. The Republicans fully understand all the implications of not passing a budget and are fully prepared to force the issue just to get their way. In other words, they are willing to hold America hostage to get what they want.
For those of you who are naive (dumb) enough to believe all of the pseudo-patriotic bilge that the Republicans have been feeding us all these years, just remember that not passing a budget will mean that the families of our fighting men and women will not be getting any paychecks for the entire duration that our country is without a budget. News reports from Afghanistan and other places that our brave Republican electeds will never have to go to engage in life and death combat have had interviews with many of our brave fighting men and women who, thanks to some Republican pantloads, have to worry about the financial well being of their families back home.
My advice to our Democratic electeds is to show the Republican big babies some tough "love" and not give in to their holding America hostage! We'll be watching and voting accordingly!
STOP THE PRESSES!! As of 11:15 PM, it appears that the Democrats took their usual initiative and ended the impasse the old fashioned way, they caved and gave the Republicans $78.5 Billion below President Obama's budget proposal. We need a Labor Party in the USA!
