Here's the article that prompted me to start the thread, BTW.
Who's to blame for the looming government shutdown? - The Week
Pointing one finger isn't enough.
Republicans. Democrats. White House. Fed. and on and on and on.
Just play along and pick one, will ya?:grin:
I voted tea party but I think all of them are to blame, including us.
Well I don't see how the Tea Party or the Media is to blame. But all the rest. Sure. Which one is more to blame. Ugh. That's like having 3 murderers on the same victim. The first one shot the victim, the second one stabbed the victim, and the third one poisoned the victim. Who's to blame more?
The media is clearly not to blame as they are not part of government. Since power is split betweent the R guys and D guys blame is split. T
he Tea Party folks are mostly just simpletons that don't understand the complexities involved in reducing the federal budget. They just seem like they think they can go up there and scratch off a billion here and a billion there and reduce the budget by a trillion dollars.
i agree with every bit of this.
The whitehouse should have submitted a budget last year and held congress' feet to the fire for a vote. The budget was put off for political reasons. The dems held both houses and the president. They wanted a showdown to be able to blame reps just like in the Clinton days. The stipend to defund obamacare is stupid. Obama will never sign it. Because a couple of rookie rep congressman will not withdraw this a shutdown will happen. There is blame for everyone. If the budget was introduced by the whitehouse and voted on last year all of this wouldn't be happening.
